If a laminated card is required then again, thermo is not possible.
Due to the processes involved, please allow extra time for delivery of your cards. Thermo is not an ultra-quick process.
Although there are artwork limitations thermo is definitely a process worth considering and business cards produced in this way do certainly have that classic, professional look and feel.
Thermo lends itself to many types of print work:
Dinner Invitations/Birthday Invites
Supplying artwork for thermography
As mentioned earlier, thermo will only work with spot colour jobs so please do not supply artwork in CMYK (4 colour) format. We'll also need to know what Pantone® (spot) colours have been used. (Pantone® is a colour matching system used throughout the commercial printing industry).
If you'd like to learn more about the differences between spot & process colours (CMYK) then there is more info here: Spot & Process Colours Explained.
Generally speaking, jpegs, tiffs, pngs etc. are not usable, (unless provided in a single colour) as these file types are generally used in 4 colour work. An ideal format is an Adobe Illustrator® vectored eps file, with colours shown as Pantone® colours.
If you have any doubts at all about the suitability of your artwork then please email across a copy and one of us will take a look and let you know if it's suitable or not. Either way, we'll do our best to help where we can.
