Defining excellence...
dayGraphica Image Transfer Products are widely recognised leaders in lithographic printing around the world.
For over half a century, Day International have introduced product improvements such as strengthened carcass
designs, unique compressibility, enhanced ink transfer, and special design innovations like the dayGraphica 7000
dual purpose UV and conventional ink blanket. New forms of Day International Image Transfer Products are
continually developed through a proactive collaboration with leading Original Equipment Manufacturers.
No two printers are alike, whether they are web or sheetfed. Day International recognises this and that is why
the dayGraphica line offers a wide variety of blankets designed to help every press run at its peak performance.
This technology base, coupled with Varn’s pressroom expertise means we can now provide printers with an
unmatched line of transfer media and pressroom chemical products. More than that, Day has now developed
blankets, sleeves and pressroom chemicals that work in harmony to deliver superior on-press performance,
