MicroWOOD® can be printed with normal printcolours. You just have to add ca. 20% more vanish, that means that you’ll have to add more colour and a little bit more pressure. The direction of the grain has to be parallel with the print design. Info : we always suggest to make own tests before the real printing starts, because every wood sort is different.
Different techniques are possible :
Offset ,Book printing ,Serigraphy print ,Digital print ,Hot-foil ,Laser cutting ,Laser engraving ,Perforating ,Cutting ,Folding ,Laminating ,etc.
