Flexography

HD Flexo is a combination of optics of 4,000 pixels per inch (dpi) resolution and exclusive rubber or soft plastic plates which are accurately adjusted. It is specially designed for raised images. The result is a digital flexo plate with excellent print quality and stability.
This is a real alternative to offset and gravure. Matching the quality of offset and gravure has always been the goal of flexography. Now, with HD Flexo the difference disappears. Providing consistency, vivid colors and better print quality, HD Flexo raises the industry standard in flexo printing. Flexographic printing can now compete with offset for quality labels, and also with gravure in flexible packaging. In addition, the digital exposure of the plate ensures greater consistency in plate making and printing.

Offset

Its procedures are carried out by Heidelberg technology, which is well-known all over the world due to its excellence and quality. It covers the whole production process and ensures an optimum and versatile performance so that production can meet specific requirements.

Hot Stamping

Hot stamping is a printing system in which heated type or stamping dies are pressed against the paper; the thin leaf contains a sizing agent that is set by heat.
What makes it different from inks is its bright, usually metallic color. It can also be used in the production of holograms.

Embossing

Labels with stamping + raised print cause a spectacular metallic effect with textures and sensations that make them pleasant to touch and sight. It can be applied to letters or shapes to generate a visual impact or eye-catching effect on the label.
Other option Oeste Argentino offers is: 
VOLUGRAF, a system that creates volume and highlights certain areas of the label, generating a volume perception through the ink color; while Stamping + Raised Print , on the other hand, produces different metallic shades according to the height of the embossing.

Digital Prepress

The main pre-press process involves the digital design to prepare the document that will be printed.
The usual course of action is the following:
  • The document is created by an author, graphic designer or other member of the creative staff,
  • Then, the document is sent to pre press where a professional examines  the document and it undergoes several stages, including:
    • Checking misspellings or typos 
    • Ensuring the proper format for pictures and other graphics
    • Splitting colors for printing, from 2 to 4 colors
    • Checking all fonts are correct
    • Checking the layout and the overall assembly, including margins and paper size.

Finally the document is edited and ready for printing. The printing plate is created and a sample copy is printed. This sample copy is usually checked by the pre press staff and if it is right, the document can be printed.

This process has become much easier with the advent of computers graphic design or desktop publishing. Nowadays, it is very usual just one person performs the task that previously used to require several. In some companies, this work is done by the graphic design department itself together with the typesetting process.
