Sovereign Press Printing produces affordable full colour printing results, offering the best in colour sharpness and vibrance, with a minimum of bleed. We use the lithographic process as the best solution to balancing time and affordability with price, producing works in the most efficient way possible while still retaining quality.
Use metallic prints to add even more intensity, brightness and depth to your images. Metallic photos are made on laminate paper that creates a metallic, iridescent quality, removing glare in the same way that matte paper does, while still retaining 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 armour prints from scratches, rubbing, fingerprints and other forms of damage, and are now a standard element of the printing process. We offer aqueous coatings that are water based and fast drying as a more economic solution in comparison to more time consuming coatings. As well as providing protection, coatings add an additional “classier” look to prints that are now expected by clients.
Lamination is used in printing to provide an additional layer of protection to materials as well adding an attractive finish, adding texture, depth and vibrance to a design. Both gloss and matte lamination involve using an adhesive thermoplastic polymer which is applied by hot rollers to the paper. Gloss is the shiny, reflective appearance often used in fashion and photography. While cheaper than matte lamination, the harsh glare that often occurs can be offputting to some consumers. Matte lamination is more expensive but has the feature of reflecting less light and absorbing more glare.
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 applied to certain elements of a print in order to make it stand out, giving it an additional 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 the 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. Often 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.
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.
