The Silo Art 3D minisheet is a first in stamp printing technology for Australia Post. We have brought together 3D printing and stamps to create this unique product.
Quantity produced: 200
This product has been 3D printed using resin and has been built up to show these beautifully painted silos in all their 3D glory. The resin has been printed with a unique digitally printed image to bring this stamp sheet to life. Includes box with beautifully laser engraved plaque Information booklet detailing the history of 3D print technology A gummed, perforated and numbered version of the 3D minisheet
This project has been done on a bordolese conical bottle, decorated with hot direct screen printing with three different colors plus the application of a brass plate in thermal fusion. Printing colors used are: white, pure platinum and copper hot - foiled. The very difficult challeng has been to print copper hot - foil over this conical bottle. The bordolese conical bottle is very difficult to print first of all because of its shape and also for its irregular wall that can reach even 1,5 mm difference between the other bottles, so due to the very thiness of hot foil is hard to et it stick on the bottles.
This bordolese conical bottle has been printed in seven colors with seven different passages with a centesimal manual centering. This manual centering has been necessary because the bottle doesn't have the centralizing notch and that is why the automatic machine can't make that. The seven printing colors are: first of all the primer which allows the creation of the craquelè effect. We can compare this technique to finger print due we can't never find two identical bottles. The second color is the satin one used with three differents tonality in order to obtain differents nuances (see the shadows of the number "25" and the stripes). Eventually the last printed colors are crème, black and pure gold very precise overprinted because otherwise we would ruin the two colors. It has been necessary four passages in the oven at high temperature.
Bright anodized 5/10 mm aluminium, 111 x 48 mm, 3 colors printed (silk screen) : Black and white for the logo, grey for the pyramid (shape of base & 1 side of the pyramid to stress the 3D effect). Pyramid are embossed (male female tool) then the plate is bend to both extremities. This plate is glued with UV glue on the perfume bottle. the expectations on this product is to enhance the 3D effect by the print.
