Gravure printing is a printing technique working on the principle of printing from depth. The printing form is embossed and the printing elements are recessed below the level of the printing plate - it is therefore the opposite of printing from above (letterpress). The printing areas are filled with very dense printing ink and under high pressure and temperature during printing the ink is transferred to the printed material, usually paper. Intaglio printing, also known as line intaglio printing, is used to reproduce engravings and print elements composed of fine lines. Due to the high level of print ink detectable by touch, it is one of the most important security features in securing valuables.
You will receive the graphic sheet in beautiful dark blue plates.
