You print on cardboard or carton, want to find out more about appropriate blankets, but have no time to click yourself through vast product catalogues?

Our new brochure "Product Range Packaging Printing" is supposed to offer a little help in the product jungle: We present seven selected printing blankets especially adapted to this demanding application – with conventional inks as well as with UV inks (including LE-UV and LED-UV technology). You will also find a choice of different coating forms (stripable, photopolymer or elastomer/laser engraved), not to forget underpacking for printing or coating cylinders. Fully in line with our motto "intelligent materials"!

We will be pleased to send you a free copy of the brochure – printed, by the way, with BIRKAN blankets on 250 g/m² thick LuxoArt paper – on request: Just send a message to . (For those in a hurry: You will find a download link here: Download request)
