Varnishes are used to reduce or accentuate particular items on the printed page as well as improve durability of the item. Gloss varnish gives a shiny coating that tends to heighten the impact of photographs or particular design elements on the page. Matt varnish gives a smooth look that doesn’t reflect the light . Silk varnish sits between gloss and matt varnishes.
We offer a range of varnishes that are often used to really improve the impact of coverings. These add to the brand in terms of making the product look more prestigious and improving durability. Varnishing techniques include, Inline UV varnishes, spot UV varnish, textured varnish, metallic and tinted varnishes.
We love foiling. It is available in a range of colours and textures, not just standard gold and silver. It provides a uniquely vibrant image with depth, foiling can be applied to a much larger range of materials in comparison to ink. Foil blocking on stationery and promotional items adds a quality look. It also allows the graphic designer further options to enhance design by adding bright or subtle finishes using foil or foil and embossing.
