Suitable Print Techniques:

Compatible with offset printing, gravure, flexo, silkscreen, foil blocking and blind embossing. Plike can be varnished, die cut and laminated. It is also compatible with xerographic non-impact printing.

Printing Recommendations:

Considering the surface’s very low absorption properties, we recommend using oxidizing inks for offset printing with the addition of a drying agent when ink density is particularly high. It is recommended to stack paper to a height of no more than 20cm, and to allow the paper to dry for at least 24 hours.

To enhance and better preserve the characteristics of this product, with its peculiar tactile effects, we recommend to take the following precautions:

– store the product in a dry area, since Plike is sensitive to humidity
– please ensure that all opened wrappers and pallets are re-wrapped securely
– prior to printing please fan the sheets to ensure separation of the sheets

Design Recommendations:

Designers should keep in mind that once ink covers the surface of Plike, it loses it’s unique feel. It recommended that you do not flood-coat Plike to avoid this happening.
