Concern for the environment is one of our major priorities:
- We use only Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) pulps.
- Pulp is sourced only from commercially managed forests.
- All mills are accredited with the International Environmental Management Standard.
- Investment in reduced water used and effuent volume processes. All effluent
plant residue is put to product re-use thus eliminating the need for landfill
For optimun results a screen of 133-150 lpi should be used. Finer
screens, up to a maximun of 200 lpi can also give very good results
with careful ink density control. For dark 4 colour images with high
ink density, under colour removal may be required depending on the
quality of the visual. This willalso hepl to reduce the print drying
Conventional, positive drying inks should be used with or without
Infra Red drying assistance. UV inks may also be used. Avoid using
overnight/stay fresh/duct stable inks. Always allow sufficient drying
time. Anti set-off spray is recommended when printing multiple colours.
Use laser-stable inks for subsequent laser printing. It is always
advisable to consult your ink supplier about specific projects to
ensure ink suitability.
Select a slower press speed for board printing. Do not allow to delivery
stack to become too large; prints at the stack bottom will still be
wet and less resistant to marking. Protect paper from environmental
humidity and temperature changes by always using stack covers or stretch
For optimun results on textures and embossed papers increase the blanket
pressure or use a softer blanket to achieve consistent ink lay down.
To achieve a gloss varnish it is essential to pre-seal the surface.
Silk screen matt UV varnish should be used first follow by subsequent
applications of gloss UV varnish to achieve the desired effect. Ensure
suitable inks are used prior to varnishing and that the inks are completely
dry before varnish application. Not recommended for paper weights.
All finishes can be blind embossed. For subsequent laser printing,
we recommend a shallow emboss to allow good feeding and to avoid damaging
While laser-cutting is easy, some scorching will be apparent around
the cut area. Laser-cut papers are more prone to misfeeds and jams
within office printing technologies.
Hot foil blocking
All finishes in the ArjoWiggins Impressions range can be foil blocked.
Foil blockers can recommend the best foil for the image and the paper
Folding and creasing
To guarantee good folding results, prior creasing is recommended.
Creases should be made parallel to the grain of the board. For best
results a creasing rule and matrix system should be used. Fold into
the bead for prominent folds except for Translucents (see separate
All finishes can be successfully screen printed.
Office desktop printing
Most products in the range carry desktop laser and inkjet guarantees
depending on grammage and colour.
Laser stable inks should be used on pre-printed sheets for subsequent
Some finishing techniques such as die-cutting and deep emboses may
cuase office machines to jam. Thermography is not recommended for
subsequent laser printing.
