Draft Design of Screen or Thermo Transfer Printing

Screen Printing and Thermo Transfer – Another Layer of a Holographic Seal for Draft Design

Screen printing is a graphical technique of laying the color on by extruding through permeable areas of a template (sieves). That is why it is sometimes called a template printing. The color is always pressed onto the top layer of the material in contrast with holographic techniques where graphical motives are impressed to a thin aluminum layer at the bottom of a load-bearing film. Colorful pattern therefore does not collide with the draft design and holographic layers distribution neither with a choice of adhesive basal media (e.g. a VOID film with a selective adhesiveness). You can prime any hologram with screen printing. The only condition for screen printing application is unchanging of a graphical motive – the same schema will be printed on every self-adhesive label.

Thermo transfer technique is used when you need to number the labels – there is a different number on each label. The most common thermo transfer application for holographic etiquettes is series numbers printing. By this technique you can not only print the numbers but also letter chains or any other signs that are offered by graphical fonts. The pattern does not only have to contain signs but it also offers an option of printing any bitmap or vector draft design such as company logos, emblems, graphical identification signs etc. Thermo transfer printing, just as screen printing, represents another full-value layer of your draft design that is diametrically different to others and therefore offers special options for reaching a planned graphical state.

The basic advantages of a layer printed by screen printing are below:


  • A choice of arbitrary color; on the other hand it is greatly limited with holographic parts of a draft design and it subjects to physical principles of holographic effects production
  • A graphics printed this way are readable in any lightning conditions and under any observation angle.
  • It is possible to use screen printing for automatically incrementing of e.g. a series number just as with numbering seals in laser burnt layers.

  • The screen printing in your draft design can enhance other important features such as another layer of a specific color or always readable printed texts on your self-adhesive label.
