Metallic printing
Use metallic prints to add even more intensity, colour and sharpness to your photographs. Metallic photos are made on laminate paper that creates a metallic, iridescent sheen, removing glare in the same way that matte paper does, while still containing the luster and vibrance of a glossy paper. Metallic prints are also extremely durable and are much less likely to smudge or become damaged.
Aqueous inline varnish

Printing varnishes are used to defend prints from tears, rubbing, fingerprints and other forms of damage, and are now a standard aspect of the printing process. We offer aqueous coatings that are water based and fast drying as a more economical solution in comparison to more expensive varnishes. As well as providing protection, coatings add an additional “classier” look to prints that are now expected by clients.

Matte/Gloss Lamination
Lamination is used in printing to provide an extra layer of protection to materials as well adding an attractive finish, adding texture, detail and vibrance to a print. Both gloss and matte lamination involves using an adhesive thermoplastic polymer which is pressed by hot rollers to the paper. Gloss is the shiny, reflective appearance often used in fashion and photography. While less expensive than matte lamination, the harsh glare that often results can be offputting to some consumers. Matte lamination is more expensive but has the benefit of reflecting less light and absorbing more glare.

Spot UV
UV coating uses ultraviolet radiation to instantly “cure” prints, both protecting the print as well as giving it a smart glossy look. Spot UV coating is unique in that it can be used on certain elements of a print in order to make it stand out, giving it an extra element of depth and detail. This is usually used for elements of a print that you want the eye to be drawn to, such as a logo or point of sale.

Embossing is the technique of using heat and pressure to create a raised 3D effect on paper or metal, creating an attractive and tactile addition to a print. Mainly used on type and logos, embossing imparts elegance and sophistication, and draws the eye to the elements of a print that you desire.

Foiling or foil stamping is simply the application of pigment or metallic foil to a design. While all colours can be used, gold or silver are the most popular choices, as they impart a feeling of wealth and class, reminiscent of classical gold binding. Foiling can be used for both titles, small and large text, borders and logos and other designs. Foiling can also be combined with embossing to create an even more striking 3D design.

Form Cutting/perfing/scoring
We offer superb expertise in custom cutting techniques for commercial prints, creating unique and eye-catching designs. In an environment saturated by media and advertising, a unique shape or appearance could be just the thing that makes your design stands out.
