Outstanding Control with Below Surface Engraving
What is Below Surface Engraving?
The ability to three-dimensionally control the dot height, shape, surface size, shoulder width & angle, and relief depth of both halftones and text. Taking the highlight dot subsurface controls dot gain while allowing more pressure latitude on press.
Because below surface engraving reduces the risk of printing shoulders and the risk of inconsistent dot gains. Control of the shoulders allows for razor sharp text even at 1 and 2 point and the ability to print smaller reverse text without filling in.
