Where We Live on the Etch!
A publication for the customers and friends of OWOSSO Graphic Arts, Inc.
Even though we take our work very seriously at OWOSSO, we also have a lot of fun! You’ll see that side of our team when you read through The OWOSSO Journal. We think it’s important that you get to know the people at OWOSSO too, not just our quality dies.
In addition to Associate news, you’ll also find articles related to a wide-range of technical issues including tips on ordering, industry updates and more. You’ll even be able to take advantage of our free classified section available only to The OWOSSO Journal readers.
If you would like to receive The OWOSSO Journal please contact our Customer Service Specialists at OWOSSO by phone at 989-725-7112 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our new website & on-line ordering is more user friendly than ever
If you’ve never used our on-line ordering, or tried it once and didn’t care for it, please give it another look. Placing your order on-line streamlines the entire process for us, and YOU. We get the information we need to make your die and you can keep track of your orders, re-order the same type of die using different artwork, print out your order form, order Make-Ready Supplies and more.
We couldn’t be more excited – it’s like the birth of a new baby and the development is taking just as long! We hope to have it “live” in the near future and that you like the new look, ease of use and improved on-line ordering system.
Transform any image onto metal – anything that can be printed on paper can be made on Metalphoto®. Metalphoto® is made from anodized aluminum and produces unparalleled durability, image resolution and readability.
The year, 1949—when the minimum wage was $.70 per hour and a new car cost $1,420. This was also the year that Ken Bentley founded Owosso Graphic Arts.
Mr. Bentley saw an opportunity when he discovered that our local newspaper couldn’t publish photos with late-breaking stories—they just couldn’t get a photoengraving in time. So he borrowed some money from his mother, bought a photoengraver’s “how-to” kit and set up shop right next door.
What’s All the Buzz? 3D Emblems — they go by many trade names, but whatever the name we can make the die!
Generate a buzz by providing these ecofriendly, flexible emblems. They adhere to a wide range of materials from metal to fabric. You’ve probably already seen them on autos, electronics, appliances, machinery and special promotional pieces. Call or e-mail for a sample of “What’s all the Buzz.”
You know how flexible OWOSSO is—that’s why you like doing business with us! We’re happy to introduce our latest service: Flexographic Printing Plates.
These should not be confused with photopolymer plates for letterpress printing—we still think magnesium or copper is the way to go for letterpress.
Flexography (often abbreviated to Flexo) is a form of printing process which utilizes a flexible relief plate. The process was originally called aniline printing because of the aniline dye inks that were first used in the process. Coarse surfaces such as corrugated board and stretchy films can economically be printed only with this process. Flexography leaped into prominence with the introduction of cellophane as a packaging material.
We took hundreds of suggestions from our customers and revamped our online ordering system to make your ordering experience with OWOSSO even better. As a registered customer you will also have access to our “forum” where you can seek help on a project from us or other customers or simply leave a comment.
