A specialist printer with the expertise for all your creative business design needs
Downey like to work closely with Design agencies to not only show early on in the creative process how specific specialist processes might be achieved but to also offer advice and guidance where needed to enable designers to truly realise their vision in print.
As Downey has a whole variety of different printing and finishing techniques in-house, we can help to tailor a print solution to your design brief without bias, just making sure the best possible result is achieved.
A quick snapshot of our in-house techniques:
Engraved print - perfect for the highest quality fine detail such as crests or for printing light colours onto dark coloured card, also known as ‘diestamping’.
Foilblocking - ideal for metallic colours or for printing onto more unusual materials like suede or woven linen.
Letterpress printing - the ultimate in fashion with a sunken ‘debossed’ effect into gorgeous soft but thick card
Embossing - to create beautiful sculpted designs without using ink at all
Thermography - Cost effective raised print technique, Ideal for corporate stationery, business cards with its instant drying being ideal for quick deadlines.
Duplexing - A techniqued largely pioneered by Downey used to create very thick cards often for stunning Invitations, sometimes using a variety of colours.
We’d like to help you and your team expand your knowledge of how these
processes work, how to best design with them in mind, and to show you some
of the stunning results that can be achieved. Please call one of our team to discuss your latest projects, to arrange a meeting or to arrange a design seminar for your studio.
