Spectra Packaging Ltd.: Seamless 360 degree printing

Spectra Packaging developed 360 degree circumference printing for brands seeking a seamless look.
FILED IN:  Package design  > Graphic

The new "Seamless" print finish which has been devised by Spectra's in-house print department will now enable brands to display intricate patterns around the entire 360 degree circumference in one single print pass, a process that has proved technically challenging in the past.

Technically, achieving a seamless printed appearance in the past would have presented a number of challenges. For example, when printing wet ink onto a cylindrical surface in a single pass, a lift off area would be required, otherwise the screen would come back into contact with the wet ink before it has cured.

However, the team at Spectra have developed an inventive way of printing designs in one single pass resulting in a seamless appearance. It means brands can now enjoy a continual circumference look which looks particularly effective with complex repeat patterns.
