Here at BoardLams our goal is to offer you art and graphics solutions for both boards getting built and existing boards. We've been testing materials and construction techniques for years and have come up with a variety of printing options and material offerings that can meet the demands of nearly any board application.
Use this guide to help you determine which BoardLams PRINTING STYLE is right for your application.
This section applies to our "Standard Ricepaper Prints" and Fiberlams printing.
Our standard print offering works great for full board graphics, small designs and logo / lam applications on white based boards. With our Standard Printing Style any color can be printed with the exception of the color white. On white based boards you don't need the color white because the white color will be inherited from the board color. If you plan to apply BoardLams to boards with a dark base color (airbrush) or you really want printed white in your logos then you should consider our Premium Printing Style.
This section applies to our "Premium Ricepaper Prints"
Our premium print offering includes the ability to print the color white for your designs. This is important if you plan to use our BoardLams on boards with a dark color base (airbrush) or you simply want the printed color white in your designs. With this style we have the ability to first print a base layer of white and then print your design colors on top of the white. With this process your BoardLam can be applied to any color board and the color of your design will show through.
Even if you don't need white ink in your design, we find the colors produced by our premium printing to be richer and more vibrant.
Premium Printing File Requirements: Best to setup your artwork through a vector based design program like Adobe Illustrator. In Illustrator create a separate layer (on the bottom) that has all of the elements that need to be printed white (or under printed white). Even better if your artist can create a CMYK spot color swatch in Illustrator called "RDG_WHITE" and assign that color to anything in that layer that needs white.
