Sculpted Embossing Dies
Our in-house engraving department can create the most intricate of shapes into any die material. From two-level dies to fully sculpted images, Avon Graphics will create a die that will give exquisite detail to your next embossing project.
Photopolymer Plate Making
The use of light-sensitive photopolymer plates has opened letterpress printing to the digital world, removing the limitations through access to digitally based typefaces and artwork. Avon Graphics creates photopolymer plates by transferring the negative of a digitally created design to a sheet of polymer. Once exposed to light in a controlled exposing unit, the exposed areas become hard, while the remaining portion stays soft and pliable. Washing then rubs away the soft material leaving only the areas that were exposed. Final baking then hardens the plate and design so that it can withstand the pressure of a letterpress. Photopolymer plates are popular plates in the flexo printing and coating industries.
