M&H Plastics braille printing method for plastic packaging

Tuesday, 18 February, 2014 | Supplied by: Plasdene Glass-Pak

M&H Plastics has developed a method of printing braille characters directly onto plastic packaging. A high-build varnish is used to print the dots directly onto the product using accurate control measures to ensure the height of the braille alphabet remains uniform throughout the packaging run.

Samples of the braille printing have been analysed by the Royal National Institute of Blind People and measured against the Marburg and RNIB standards.

According to the company, braille printing directly onto the product has benefits over labels which can easily be damaged or peeled off. In addition, the braille printing is less likely to rub off, the company says.

Although developed specifically for braille, this process can also be used in traditional screen printing, allowing users to highlight specific design features by using an embossed effect.
