Please note that due to the optical effect of these papers, the print result will differ from standard uncoated sheets. Print Techniques Suitable for widely used print techniques, including offset lithography, letterpress, embossing, debossing, silkscreening, die-stamping and foil-blocking. A pre-test is recommended for thermography.
The unique surface finish of these papers will interplay with printed images in interesting ways. The distinctive metal-like surface of the papers will show through the ink and may reduce the image contrast - all as part of the designer’s intended effect. By the same token, deep, solid areas of black or blue can be difficult to achieve; this is not a paper defect but a natural characteristic of metallic/iridescent papers. On press, it is normal for some of the special surface coating to transfer to the blanket. Blankets are likely to require cleaning after 4,000 impressions or more.
We recommend using fully oxidising inks. Please consult your ink manufacturer for specific colours or formulations. Curious Metallics do not contain ground metals and are not foil papers.
