For 40 years, Best Image Printers has been printing using thermography, also known as raised printing. We offer regular and laser-safe thermography for your letterhead, envelopes, business cards, invitations, and announcements. The thermography process applies a special powder to offset printing as it comes off the press. The powder adheres to the wet ink. The printed stock then passes through a heater which causes the powder to “rise” and create a look similar to engraving but without the expense.
Thermography can melt when passing through the heat of a laser printer or copier fuser unit. For stationery that will be used in laser printers, office printers or copiers, it is essential to use laser-safe thermography. Laser-safe thermography uses a special heat-resistant powder designed specifically not to remelt and smear the thermography when it is exposed to the high temperatures of most laser printers and copier fuser units.
