About Us

An experienced industrial company specializing in etching technology and specialist printing, UNION-KLISCHEE celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2016.
We print and manufacture products using a variety of processes:

Screen printing
Screen printing is suitable for front, keyboard, and labeling foils, as well as type plates and promotional labels.

Pad Printing
Pad printing is used for printing on physical objects such as casings, keys, optical lenses, and promotional items.

Digital Printing
Digital printing is used for banners, display systems, posters, fine art prints, and textiles.

Etching Technology
Etching rounds off our range of services. With this chemical process, we can produce shielding plates, code disks, and model components.

Our customer base consists of industrial companies from the fields of medical technology, measurement and sensor technology, precision engineering, and mechanical engineering. We also provide our services to model construction companies, advertising agencies, the public sector, and private individuals.
In each of these areas, we advise and support our customers every step of the way, from the initial file and data editing to the finished product.

Print templates
The right print template
We need the following templates and details in order to meet your wishes accurately and on schedule.

Camera-ready copies
This includes all templates that can be reproduced using the relevant methods to create a film, from which a printing form is then produced depending on the printing process. You will generally be required to provide us with line originals, i.e. your design in black and white for reflection copies or black and clear for transparent copies.

Reflection copies
Your design in black or color on a white substrate.

Transparent copies
Slides or negative films

Films
If you already have films that feature your design or a prepress firm is creating some for you, remember that they need to be in 1:1 scale. It is also essential for the films to match the specific requirements of the printing process to be used.

Unreversed and reversed
Unreversed film means that the black photo layer is on the readable side of the film. Reversed film therefore means that the photo layer is not on the readable side of the film, but on the reverse side of it.
Both film templates have the same task of curing the exposed areas of the print template (cliché or screen), while the dark areas of the film template absorb the curing light from the copy lamp so that the print design will then appear in these areas.

Positive and negative
Positive film means that all the areas to be printed are black and the surfaces not to be printed are transparent. Negative film, conversely, means that all the areas to be printed are transparent and the surfaces not to be printed are black.

1. A film envelope (negative, front side=reversed, back side=unreversed)
