Wattmark has offered printing service for 10 years and its exquisite design and appealing layout, excellent color management, and outstanding finishing. Over the years of development, Wattmark became the drivers of high-quality printing services and provided one-stop customized printing service for the customers in the fields of art, photography, design, auction and publishing.
Printing is a systematic project to bring of all the details, specially colors and design vividly back on the paper. It requires all aspects of printing procedure are stable and under control. Through demand, color, lean production and global supply chain management system, Wattmark systematically and standardized the whole production a line and fully automate production and operation. Through systematic management, the various processes of the printing team are seamlessly connected, so that the quality of the products and samples are consistent during the mass production process.
Higher Screen Ruling Printing
We can print with higher definition imagery at 300 lpi as fine as printing with stochastic screening, but without the constraints of the stochastic process. We are able to produce printed sheets that look like continuous tone images, with mid-tones that appear very smooth, and superior reproduction of details in highlight areas.
-300 lpi printing is achieved with the same effort and process control as traditional 175 lpi printing.
-Significant enhancement of image quality with 300 lpi screening at 2400 dpi.
-Minimal rosette pattern.
-Smoother flesh tones, tints and gradations.
-Superior highlight tone reproduction.
-Ability to run higher ink density settings.
One of the print manufacturer accredited with the Waterless printing technique in China
With burgeoning technologies, new printing standards and digital applications, our Graphic Arts Technology team is devoted to adopting them to help us better serve our business partners, clients and community while also contributing to our environment. In the past, we have shared with you new processes and techniques, such as Computer to Plate (CTP) processes, Soft proofing, FM screening, and digital color presses. Today we are pleased to bring you another new advancement. We are proud to be the first print manufacturer in China accredited with the Waterless printing techniques. We strive to achieve developments in this new era of printing, while passing along environmental benefits.
Waterless Printing is a type of lithographic printing that eliminates the water or dampening system used in conventional printing. It uses a special silicone rubber coated printing plate, special ink, and a controlled temperature on the press. As a result, it eliminates dampening related VOCs from the printing process, and therefore doesn't contribute to ozone depletion and global warming.
Less Dot Gain
Clients seek high quality, accurate color reproduction. Using the Waterless process reduces dot gain dramatically.
Finer Screen Rulings
Waterless printing allows finer screen rulings on all stocks to 200–300 lines per inch — even on uncoated stocks.
Up to 50% less dot gain provides greater photographic detail, achieving more clarity and depth, especially in mid-tone and shadow areas of a picture.
With less dot gain more ink is applied, resulting in a vibrancy of color that cannot be achieved with water-based printing processes.
Once optimum color is achieved it remains consistent across the press run.
