Printing and handling guidelines
 

> Set-up
Store at room temperature (17-23°C), at a relative humidity of 50%, from 24 to 48 hours before use. Unwrap the paper only at the last moment before printing and rewrap it immediately after the print run.
For re-cutting: - keep the paper fibre direction (// to the large size) perpendicular to the printing direction.   
- For grammages > 135 g/m², plan a rejection cut.



                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

> Pre-press
For litho printing:
• Large printed surface: under colour-
removal recommended.

• Intense full colours:
- for black colour, blue support (40%)
recommended or two black sequences.
- for other colours, 1 or several colour support(s).

• Screen-ruling: up to 150 lpi.

 

> Printing
Printing techniques:
Offset & Ivory: dry offset and web offset with heatset drying, silkscreen, letterpress; printing inks: all inks suitable for uncoated paper.

 

 

Laser-Jet: dry offset and web offset with heatset and coldset drying; printing inks: for pre-print, use inks that are laser compatible.
Do not use set-off powder when printing.


> Finishing
Finishing techniques: foil blocking, gumming, embossing, all varnishing.

 

> Shaping
Suitable for perforating, drilling, die cutting.
Adapts easily for creating envelopes.

• Folding: parallel to the paper fibre direction
(// to the large size).

• Scoring: from 135 g/m², scoring with counterpart; from 200 g/m², larger scoring needed on the back of the fold.

• Cutting: wait 24 hours after the printing. Ensure that the blade of the guillotine is sharp enough to avoid dust deposits.

 

> Storage
Protect the paper against any risk of moisture during the storage period.
