Achieve Fine Details and Full-Tone Images in Sheet-fed and Web-fed Printing

There are two processes for cold transfer, and they differ distinctly from one another regarding their application methods and the transfer technique employed. Cold transfer can be utilized in sheet-fed offset printing on the one hand, and narrow web flexographic, letterpress or offset printing on the other. These processes differ from one another not only in terms of printing machine systems used, but also in the materials, i.e. substrate, adhesive and foil grades.
