Engraving is a printing method using a plate, also called a die, with an image cut into its surface. The plate or die is a hardened steel or copper engraving stamp used to print an inked image. Images such as copy or art are etched onto the plate or die with chemicals or tools. When ink is applied to the plate, these etched areas are filled with ink. Through the engraving process, paper is forced against this die and lifts the ink out of the etched areas, creating raised images on the paper. One of the many benefits of Engraving is the ability to achieve fine hairline imagery, delicate lines and type as small as 4 point. We can match any color including metalics with Engraving and the inks will not melt in a laser printer. Engraved printing is coveted for very high quality letter headings and printed materials for special events.
