Applications of Fedrigoni Freelife Vellum

Freelife  Vellum  papers  and  boards  are  ideal  for  any  kind  of  publishing,   packaging   and   commercial   printing.   They   are   held  in  high  regard  for  coordinated  graphic  materials,  special  publications, brochures and booklets.

Printing suggestions

Fedrigoni Freelife Vellum can be used without problems with the main printing systems: letterpress,   offset,   blind   embossing,   hot   foil   stamping,   thermography  and  screen  printing.  The  macro-porous  surface  suggests  the  use  of  oxidative  drying  inks.  Good  chromatic  result:  attainable  ink  load,  dot-gain  and  printing  contrast  are  analogous to those obtainable onto pure pulp substrates.

Converting suggestions

Varnishing and plastic laminating must be assessed in advance. The  varnish  coated  with  an  offset  machine  is  almost  fully  absorbed  and  therefore  does  not  improve  gloss  or  protection.  Screen-printing  varnishing  achieves  better  results,  although  it  is  often  necessary  to  perform  two  shots  to  achieve  a  distinctly  evident result. The surface roughness typical of uncoated papers may give rise to micro defects with plastic laminating caused by incomplete adhesion of the film to the substrate.Good results with major processing operations such as: cutting, die-cutting, scoring, folding and glueing.
