As the world's environmental issues become more and more serious, people's demand for environmentally friendly packaging is becoming stronger and stronger. Not only are packaging designs high-end and exquisite, they are also required to have certain environmental performance and individual appearance.
Zhiben Environmental Protection Technology adheres to the concept of "Green Earth & Sustainability” to create environmentally friendly packaging products. Based on the use of new environmentally friendly materials, it empowers and renews packaging technology, which not only enhances the artistic effect, but also satisfies the needs of different consumers at different levels.
Eight new surface decoration methods will be shared with you here.
Hot stamping is widely used in the printing industry and also is a very mature process for molded pulp products. The principle of hot stamping is to heat the mold, and then transfer the gold material on the paper to the pulp molding. The advantage of this process is the cost is not high, but the color selection is relatively monotonous.
The advantage of UV printing is that it is more efficient and faster, especially for proofing without publishing, simplifying other processes and equipment processing, and can highly restore various colors. UV can print various documents in 4 colors, and can print three-dimensional products including curved surfaces. Its disadvantage is that the efficiency of mass production is slower and the cost is higher.
Screen printing is a traditional decoration process in China. The advantage is that the printed color is rich, but it can only be printed in single color at present. If multiple colors are used, multiple printing will be required, which will greatly increase the production cost. Therefore, the screen printing technology is mostly printed on flat packaging.
Sleeve is a common decoration way in molded pulp box. Product information can be printed on biodegradable paper.
The advantage of the sticker is that any pattern and color of any product can be made on the sticker, and then paste the sticker on the pulp box. It is easy to restore more colors.
However, there are two disadvantages. One is that the cost of manual application is relatively high In addition. The other is if it covers the entire surface of the product, people can not see the raw material from the surface.
Crystal label is another form of sticker. The process is to print the pattern on film A and then cover film B. The crystal label solves many problems in printing. It is convenient to use, glossy and has a strong sense of three-dimensionality. The crystal label is a transferring way of decoration. The film is removed and the characters are left. It is suitable for making a logo and a small amount of important information.
Because it is different from the traditional uv and hot stamping process expressiveness, Scodix is mainly in brighter brightness, higher height, and texture details, etc. Tt is crystal clear and bright like water drops on the printed surface.
And with different density and gradual expression, it can well simulate the veins, borders and other textures of similar plants. The anti-oxidation of Scodix can keep it crystal clear for a long time.
Mixing Decoration Way
If you feel that only one of the above processes is a bit monotonous on the packaging, you can also mix them according to the needs of the product. Regarding the surface decoration on the pulp moulding , an appropriate amount of hot stamping and partial stickers can be used . For example, the combination of Scodix, UV printing and other processes can not only display product information more vividly, but also partially display the material characteristics of pulp molding.
As a new type of material that will be used substantially in the future, environmentally friendly packaging materials, combining with boutique packaging, will surely be favored by more brands and consumers!
