DIFFERENT COATING TECHNIQUES
It is used to protect and enhance the printed piece. Aqueous coating is applied to all 100lb gloss book and 100lb gloss cover.
A liquid coating applied on the box, which is then bonded and cured with ultraviolet light. This coating is used to provide a protective coating to the printed image. Please note that you CAN NOT write or imprint on UV-coated jobs.
A coating that is matte or flat, not as shiny like gloss coated, but still keeps much of the ink from being absorbed by the paper and produces an excellent image.
A dull matte film applied to one or both sides of a print product. Silk lamination gives cards a luxuriously smooth feel and may dull color and contrast slightly. Durable Silk lamination is tear and water-resistant.
Spot UV Coating
A liquid coating applied to the printed piece only in specific areas as opposed to all overcoating. Indicate what areas you would like to have UV by providing a mask file where UV areas are black and No UV areas are white.
