Bronzing process

Printing process, bronzing

Bronzing is among the oldest print finishing processes and the achieved surface effect is still unique.

The technique is still used today for high quality labels and packaging. In a complex process, an adhesive ink is applied as an image to the substrate surface and then reflective bronzing powder is dusted over the entire substrate (paper, cardboard). The excess powder is brushed off and can be saved for another use.
