Using the latest technology in the business, Trinity works with an array of materials and equipment to ensure the highest level of success for your printed product. Trinity Graphic has extensive experience with the science of Platemaking, having worked closely with Photopolymer experts to improve their product standards. Aware that manufacturers use differing materials which each have their own specific advantages and market suitability, we stock a wide variety of products on the shelf, ensuring compatibility to the substrate and press format.
Trinity has several plate washout systems, enabling us to produce large format plates, ranging in thickness from .045” to .25”, including the solvent free thermal processed Fast plates. Our plates suit the various Flexo printing equipment used in the industry.
We have in-house solvent reclamation enabling us to wash plates out faster with higher quality due to less solvent absorption into the material.
Trinity utilizes ESKO’s HD Flexo which is a high resolution plate that consistently delivers smooth vignettes, sharp details, intense colors and high contrast resulting in increased print quality.
We also offer ESKO’s SambaFlex which is transitional / hybrid screening which improves the smoothness of your flexo highlights while maintaining mid-tones and shadows.
As the industry leaders of the Photopolymer Embossing Process, Trinity is renowned for its ability to produce the highest quality emboss for even the most difficult projects with the fastest turnaround times.
The concept of Photopolymer Embossing is the application of hard durometer Male and Female photopolymer plates applied to two die blanks positioned into a rotary die station, on a web fed press. These plates are a specially formulated photopolymer which, when using proprietary techniques, produce plates which have sufficient durometer to withstand the extreme pressure of embossing.
Photopolymer embossing is a cost effective, faster turnaround alternative to engraved steel embossing cylinders. Since the practically weight less your shipping costs will be drastically reduced.
Ideally suited for the cosmetic, food & beverage, and wine label markets. This process allows most substrates to have an embossed and/or debossed effect enhancing product appeal and creating a more high-end look to your label or package.
This process is often used to replicate paper patterns. We have many unique custom patterns in our catalogue and are able to
replicate most any pattern you may need for your next project.
The Photopolymer Embossing Process works on a multitude of non-synthetic substrates. An evaluation can be made once we have received a sample of the stock. We have the ability to provide embossed proofs prior to expensive press runs.
Shrink-sleeve label is an exciting new trend in the world of packaging and represents the highest growth in flexographic printing. However, this opportunity brings with it a serious prepress challenge. As a shrink-sleeve label shrinks around a bottle or packaging, all of the graphics and embellishments on the label become distorted in proportion to the bottle or packaging dimensions. To compensate, all the graphics must be predistorted during prepress to ensure that the final label appear as the designer intended.
At Trinity Graphic, we have the latest software, scanners, distortion measurement techniques and the skillset to overcome these challenges. Our artists have over 15 years of training starting from the inception of shrink sleeve labels.
Trinity Graphic can help you with all of your pre-press needs whether you plan to print your shrink-sleeve via flexo, gravure or digital printing.
In addition to its prepress services Trinity Graphic provides specialized global consulting and training services to the flexographic, rotary letterpress, prepress and printing industries.
These services can be retained independently or in tandem with print projects. A Trinity consultant will work with your team members to develop value-driven solutions and identify technical issues.
Should you wish to establish an in-house prepress or platemaking facility, look to Trinity’s consulting team for direction. We have many years experience with equipment testing and will assist you in the identification of the best equipment to fit your needs and budget. Please note, we do not sell equipment and our recommendations are made based upon the best fit for each client’s needs.
Consulting & training
In-house training programs are also available. We will train your personnel from the early stages of digital set-up and output through platemaking.
