Varnishes

Why not consider matt varnishing your job, this gives the job a superior feel. It also benefits the job by sealing the ink from marking.

Lamination

Gloss or Matt laminate will add greatly to the finished job, increasing the life of the job through protection & giving a professional look & feel.

Spot UV Varnish

A job with images that you might want to accentuate can be made to really stand out from the page with a gloss spot uv varnish. This works very well when used with matt lamination, with a spot uv varnish over the specific image, or text. Spot UV varnishes also work well with no print.

Foil Blocking

Foil blocking, used much less today, still adds a touch of luxury & class to any job. This can gold, silver, or pretty much any other colour, gloss, matt or even textured.

Embossing

Clever use of embossing can give a job a third dimension, so adding a tactile finish will certainly make the finished job more interesting.
