The sticker process is the most commonly used surface finishing process for wooden boxes. It can be divided into machine stickers and manual stickers according to the processing methods. Wood-grain paper is a new type of decorative material made of high-molecular polymer (PVC) as raw material, adding various additives, through pressing, composite, and wood-grain printing. Its characteristic is that the wood grain is lifelike, and it can imitate the wood grain of natural wood to achieve the “real wood effect”. Its fine workmanship surface effect attracts consumers' attention. Its appearance has found a very promising direction for the development of wooden boxes, and has greatly improved the added value of sticker wooden boxes, and brought considerable value-added profits to the enterprise.
3. Piano paint process
Piano paint process is a kind of baking paint process. Compared with ordinary high-gloss spray paint, piano paint has two essential differences: First: piano paint has a thick primer layer and a sophisticated finish. The surface is crystal clear and bright, with strong penetrating power. Second: The surface layer of piano lacquer is relatively brittle, special care is needed. The brightness, compactness, and stability of piano lacquer are much better than other lacquers artwork due to its speical charateristics. The surface layer of the piano lacquer is still as bright as new after decades, while the ordinary brightness spray paint has long been oxidized and penetrated. In addition, the piano baking paint craft products must be dried for a long time during the production process, and the hardness of the finished product can be comparable to that of artificial marble; at the same time, due to the construction process of drying and physical treatment, the formaldehyde contained in the wooden box board and the coating with the harmful substances to the human body have been completely volatilized, so the wooden box with piano paint is more environmentally friendly.
4. Engraving process
Laser engraving can be used on many surface of different materials. The high engraving accuracy and fast engraving speed, especially laser three-dimensional engraving make the engraving of complex patterns on spatial curved surfaces or inclined surfaces possible, which is also very beneficial for the surface with complex texture patterns.
Advantages of laser engraving process:
1) Wide range of applications and low price.
2) Safe and reliable: Non-contact processing is adopted, which will not cause mechanical extrusion or mechanical stress to the material. There are no "knife marks", no damage to the surface of the workpiece, and no deformation of the material.
3) Precise and meticulous: The machining accuracy can reach 0.02MM.
4) Environmental Friendly.
5) Consistent effect: Ensure that the processing effect of the same batch is completely consistent.
6) High speed and efficient: high speed engraving can be carried out immediately according to the pattern output by the computer.
7) Low cost: Not limited by the number of processing, laser processing is cheaper for small quantity order.
5. Bronzing process
The bronzing process is becoming the "new favorite" for packaging boxes as it enhances the visual effect and value of products. The wooden box look like being burnt after the it is carved. It has a primitive artistic beauty that matches the color of the wooden box. The depth of its color mainly depends on the laser power and the speed of the carving. The bronzing process allows you to color the product at any time and it can produce a very ideal decorative effect regardless of the thickness of the picture and the size. In particular, the colors used for bronzing are colorful, commonly used colors are gold, silver, black, and special colors can even be customized. On the packaging boxes of different brands, gold powder is used to create a luxurious and elegant visual effect, and the surface finishing has become an important means to enhance the value of goods and attract consumers. This process has achieved significant market effects in product decoration, and has also brought considerable value-added effects to packaging box suppliers.
6. Branding process
Branding process, the traditional process method, that is, using electric soldering irons of different sizes or heating bronzing templates, bronzing patterns and text on the surface of the wooden box. With the development of science and technology, today, advanced branding machines are used to directly heat the bronzing mold to brand various patterns and characters. Branding can not only create eye-catching brand value for visual effects, but also technically create differences in grades and enhance product value.
7. Screen printing process
Silk-screen printing is a process widely used in wooden boxes. The principle of silk screen printing is: when the printing plate is in silk printing, the ink is transferred to the substrate through the holes of the stencil through a certain pressure to form an image or text. The screen printing equipment is simple, easy to operate, easy to make a plate with low cost, and strong adaptability. It can not only be printed on a flat surface, but also on curved, spherical, and concave-convex substrates. The silk screen has thick ink layer, strong covering power, and rich texture. Understand the characteristics and advantages of silk screen printing when choosing the silk screen method, you can maximize the strengths and avoid weaknesses, highlight the advantages of screen printing, and achieve more ideal results.
8. Metal patch
Metal patch (also known as metal self-adhesive sign, UP sign, three-dimensional sign) is currently the most luxurious and high-end decorative sign in the world. The thickness of this product is generally 0.03-0.2MM, mainly made of metal copper, 24K gold, imported 3M glue, etc. Made of refined materials, the main colors are: gold, silver, gun black. The application of metal patches can help improve product beauty and product quality, and is of great significance for opening up the market and increasing brand awareness, making products a very unique effect, and at the same time bringing new opportunities for enterprises.
