Printing Methods


As the most popular global printing technique, and used on all passports, ID cards, currencies, etc, we have a wide range of security inks suitable for offset. These can be conventionally dried or UV cured and can be specially formulated to match the customers preference for tack and viscosity.
We also manufacture inks for use on waterless offset (Toray) and water/bleach reactive inks for printing on dry offset (nyloplate) presses
