Rotogravure was originally developed to reproduce fine art, but can now be used to create colorful images on your bags. During the rotogravure process, the image is etched onto a cylinder, creating an impression that is then filled with ink. Rotogravure creates brighter and more colorful images than traditional printing techniques.
Formosa is capable of using various printing options such as surface printing and reverse printing. With surface printing, ink is printed on the outermost surface, and colors are added from light to dark. In reverse printing, the colors are added from dark to light, and the ink is on the inside of the film made on the cylinder.
