✍ Construction of Print Name Card






Construction of Print Name Card


Print Name Card is printed on some form of card paper, and their visual effects, printing methods, costs, and other details vary according to cultural or organizational norms and personal preferences. The common weight of the Print Name Card varies by location. Typically, Print Name Card are printed at 350 grams / square meter (density), 45 millimeters (100 pounds) (weight) or 12 pounds (thickness).

Initially, these cards were significantly lighter in weight, and perforations could be felt at the edges, but improvements in printer and paper design made it possible to print professional-looking cards.

It is common to use spot colors to print replacement Print Name Card without full-color photos on a sheet-fed offset press. Some companies even have spot colors on their trademarks (for example, UPS brown, Los Angeles Lakers purple and Tide orange). If the Print Name Card logo is monochrome and the type is another color, the process is considered to be two colors. More spot colors can be added according to the needs of the card. With the beginning of digital printing and batch printing, it is now cost-effective to print Print Name Card in full color.

In order to simulate the effect of printing with engraved plates, a cheaper method called thermal imaging has been developed, which uses plastic powder that can be replaced on wet ink. The card is then rotated into a heating unit, which melts the plastic onto the card. A similar effect can be achieved by applying UV varnish on the matte sheet substrate.

Sheet-fed presses also print full-color cards or cards that use multiple colors. However, they use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) four-color printing process. Screens with colors that are overprinted on each other will produce a wide color gamut. The disadvantage of this printing method is that if you check carefully, the sifted color will find tiny dots, and in most cases, the spot color card will be printed in solid color. Or a non-black type simple card with less than 5 points.

Use an additional unit on a sheet-fed printing press to apply the coating like another ink. That is to say, UV coatings can also use spot coating, which creates additional design potential. Do not replace UV paint with paint, paint should be glazed or semi-glazed before printing.

Print Name Card can also be printed using a digital copier, which uses toner fused on the surface of the Print Name Card, but many modern printing companies have replaced high-end "digital printers", which can now be used as office copiers, ranging from Lightweight production equipment such as Konica Minolta's Bizhub 5500, and the latest HP Indigo digital printing press and other state-of-the-art equipment.

Although some older office copiers may encounter problems when handling heavy Print Name Card paper, the latest digital printing presses can print paper with a special quality weighing 407 g / m2 (150 # cover paper), and Can print special substrates, such as polypropylene. Many modern digital printers can be used in both sheet and web models, can simulate Pantone spot colors, can print more than 7 colors at a time, and some even include embedded spectrophotometers and air-assisted paper feed systems.

UV coatings and other coatings (such as water-based coatings) can be used to speed up the production of cards. Cards that are not dry will "place", that is, the ink on the front of one card will be marked on the back of the next card. The layer usually has a high gloss, but it is more likely to produce fingerprints, and the water-based coating is not obvious, but it can prolong the replacement of the card. You can use dim water-based paint on uncoated cards and get some very durable uncoated cards, and you can also use UV coating or plastic extrusion technology to thicken thin cards, so they are also more durable.

(Bleeding refers to the portion where the printed lines or colors extend beyond the lines of the paper to be printed on.) This helps ensure that the paper will be cut without white edges due to the small difference in the cutting position of the blade. Cards, cards with almost no tailoring are almost impossible. Just losing hair will cause white lines, and the blade itself will pull the paper when cutting. The image on the paper can also be moved
