Thermography is an alternative to engraving. It is a heat process that raises the print above the page to give it a relief that one can feel. A fine powder is sprinkled onto printed paper or card, whilst the ink is still wet. The card is then passed through a heat process that fuses the powder with the ink. Thermography looks bold and shiny and gives a result close to die-stamping or engraving. Though it doesn’t work well on envelopes, it is a successful process for invitations and writing papers.

Please note that our thermography will not be compatible with subsequent passing through a laser printer. There may also be a small amount of card curling. This will go once the card or paper has had time to cool and absorb moisture from the air.
