How to Make Direct Print Corrugated Look Good

James Chesley, Pamarco

There has been a recent increase in companies returning to or making an original investment in direct, high-graphics corrugated printing. Why this draw to something that hasn’t lived up to the capabilities of label printing in the past? In a nutshell: with technology today, there are ways of pushing the limits in direct print that the industry has never seen before. In some cases, direct corrugated print quality nearly replicates that of preprint, but it often does so at a reduced cost. By following a disciplined approach, direct print may result in new clients and increased profits.

By Daetwyler

Whether it’s the most complicated printing job or the simplest line work, controlling the Ink Film Thickness is very critical when it comes to providing a high quality in a repeatable print job.
