Create Dry Offset Vignettes to 0%
Direct engraving is the only platemaking process that crafts each dot on the plate in a three-dimensional way, allowing us to take the highlight dot below the surface. With the highlight dot on a different plane than the solid, we can precisely control dot gain, making offset-like vignettes to 0% possible.
Get Continuous Tones and Offset-like Contrast Results
With Stealth Screening, concerns about inkwell contamination vanish. Wet trapping never occurs with our system because we don’t employ any color overprint. Stealth Screening also uses 100% of the available print blanket and transfers 100% of the ink from the blanket to the container, giving you:
- A continuous-tone look, even at coarse line-screen rulings
- Offset-like print contrast results
Stealth Screening also lets you print white ink between other color halftone dots without contamination, creating the illusion of printing on a white-coated container without the usual turnaround time and expense. You’ll see a tremendous quality improvement when you print on clear plastics, colored plastics and bare aluminum cans.
