Fine Quality Work
Fine text and colour illustrations printed on quality label stock are images made from dots of colour. In 4 colour process the individual dots are made of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and the Key colour Black referred to as CMYK and arranged in rosettes. Since early 2010 Labelsprint have been running the latest QA-I dry toner with great success.
The individual process colours are applied in size and density proportions defined in artwork files so Blue under a magnifying glass can be seen to be made from mainly Cyan and magenta dots ; green is yellow and cyan; Red is magenta and yellow etc. The dots are small and our eye merges the dots into colour solids and tints.
The dots of colour themselves are flattened in the flexo carrier printing processes that use plates so the solid colour density is limited and highlight tints and tones tend to cut-off before achieving the designed half-tone effect. The digital label printing process that we apply photo-statically attracts particles of toner to the web without the constraints of a carrier plate so our solid colours are dense and vignettes taper down to almost 0% highlight. The images here emphasise these points. Please contact us for samples and run a label quote on this site, upload your artwork and view an online proof all part of the evolving digital label service.
