This is available in a high gloss clear finish which allows the ink colour to show through and gives a smooth raised printed finish. Solid areas have an orange peel effect. It is also available in metallic gold and silver. Thermography adds that special touch when it matters, business cards, letterheads and invitation cards being an ideal examples.
When used for letterheads it should be noted that although perfectly suitable for use with ink jet printers or other processes not involving heat, the image will melt if fed through a laser printer or photo-copier.
For those who use laserprinters to output their letters it is no longer necessary to sacrifice the quality of their stationery. UV cured laserproof thermography is a newly developed thermographic finish that is safe to use. It will withstand the temperatures found in laserprinters and photocopiers without being damaged. There is a growing demand for this distinctive finish, which is the only raised gloss image that is safe to use in laser printers.

Designs involving solid printed areas should be avoided as some shrinkage of the image is normal with this process and can cause distortion of the paper.
