Printing on thermal cardboard is one of the wide possibilities of flexographic printing. Flexography printing of thermal tickets and labels ensures the high quality and aesthetic appearance of the image, allows us to produce large runs, and minimize resource costs.
Thermal cardboard and its application
Thermal cardboard is a paper material of 130 g / m2 density and more with a special heat-sensitive layer containing microcapsules with the colorizing components. The capsules burst under the influence of temperature, and the dye appears on the surface. There is thermal cardboard with and without a protective coating. Thermal-coated cardboard is more durable and resistant to moisture, grease, and chemicals.
Thermal cardboard is used for the manufacture of various types of tickets, for example, for theaters, cinemas, circus, see parks, zoo, museums, exhibitions, sports, and other entertainment events’ tickets. Labels are also manufactured from thermal cardboard including labels for jewelry.
The price of thermal-uncoated cardboard is lower. Parking or discount coupons, transport tickets, and various tags are printed on such thermal cardboard.
The desired image and basic text information, for example, the venue of the event, the name of the event, rules, the organizing company logo, pictures, pictograms, etc., are applied to the thermal cardboard when manufacturing thermal tickets and labels in a print shop.
As for the additional information, for example, the date of the event, row, place, or information about the product, it is applied to the ready-made blanks of thermal tickets or labels using a thermal printer when the ticket sale is already underway. Thermal cardboard and printed products made of thermal cardboard should be stored in dry, ventilated spaces avoiding direct sunlight and heating.
Flexography printing on thermal cardboard
Using flexography, you can get beautiful thermal tickets and thermal labels of excellent print quality. It is possible to implement a design of any complexity, to apply numbered consecutively marks, QR-code or barcode, and advertising information.
Moreover, it is possible to order thermal tickets in a print shop using various printing effects. For example, selective varnish or hot foil stamping significantly enhances the validity and attractiveness of thermal tickets and emphasizes the significance of the event. A hologram or the use of special inks not only improves the appearance of the thermal tickets but also contains additional protective features to impede falsification.
A perforation, a series of through micro-holes, is often applied to thermal tickets. This makes it easy for the ticket spine to be torn off easily along the line or separate tickets from each other.
