Thermographic inks are heat sensitive so they get heated and they puff up. It is often used as an inexpensive option to egraving. When the ink puffs it acts kind of like dot gain and letter edges grow and counters can fill in.

Holographic foils need a opaque white under colors. Check the sheet sizes as the foil sheet may not match the size of the base paper or board they are being laminated to.

They should print the cigarette warning messages using thermographic ink. "If you smoke, black crap like this cheesy thermographic ink will coat lungs"
