Applications of Fedrigoni Old Mill

Old  Mill  is  a  high-quality  finely  felt  marked  paper  for  de  luxe  publications  and  editions,  important  commercial  printing  as  well as institutional brochures, annual reports, monographs.

Printing suggestions

Fedrigoni Old Mill 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.  The  chromatic  and  tone  performance  is  good,  the  ink  load  ,  the  dot  gain,  and  the  print  contrast  are  at  the  best  levels  attainable  from  uncoated  paper.

Converting suggestions

Varnishing and plastic laminating must be assessed in advance. The  varnishing  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  felt  marked  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.
