Finishing

Print Finishing is one of the most important stages in the printing process.Finishing the job means Emboss, UV Varnishing, Laminating etc.Direct marketing materials like catalogues, free-standing POS displays or on-brand annual reports.we delivers top-quality finished marketing material that best represents your product or service.

Embossing

Emboss – a visually effective style of print finishing.
Embossing refers to the pressing an image or text into paper or cardstock to create a three dimensional design.Text, logos and other images can all be created by embossing. Embossing with a design higher than the surrounding paper surface gives you a raised (blind emboss) 3D result.

A similar technique is Debossing. Debossing gives you a depressed surface, with the design lower than the surrounding paper area.Embossing provides a look of high quality and elegance. This method is used most often when creating presentation folders, business cards, invitations, certificates and brochure covers.

A ‘wow’ factor with embossing is when the effected surface area is printed or stamped with metallic foil or a spot UV coating.The embossed surface can also be pre-printed giving an interesting 3D effect.

Lamination

laminating

Lamination adds a layer of protective coating (usually some type of plastic), often glossy or matte, to the printed surface while also improving its sturdiness and water resistance.If a high gloss laminate is applied to the printed surface, photos and images appear to have more contrast and have better sharpness

There are different lamination processes, depending on the type of materials to be laminated. The materials used in laminates can be the same or different, depending on the processes and the object to be laminated.

Laminating paper products, such as photographs, can prevent them from becoming creased, faded, water damaged, wrinkled, stained, smudged, abraded, or marked by grease or fingerprints.

Varnishes

Varnish is often associated with wood. However, what you may not know is that varnishes are also used on paper.
Paper varnishes are applied to paper stock to give the page a smooth and consistent texture as well as having the added benefit of sealing the printed material to help preserve it better.

High-quality books and magazines usually have a paper varnish applied to their pages.Typically, varnishes are applied to the entire printing surface when a page needs to be robust but without adding too much weight to the paper stock, making it suitable for magazine pages, magazine covers, and brochures.

Spot UV

Spot UV varnishes are paper varnishes applied to the printing surface and is cured or hardened by UV light during the printing process. This results in a glossy coating on the surface of your print.

Ultra-violet cured coatings can be applied over ink printed on paper and dried by exposure to UV radiation. UV coatings can be formulated up to 100% solids so that they have no volatile component that contributes to pollution. This high solids level also allows for the coating to be applied in very thin films. UV coatings can be formulated to a wide variety of gloss ranges. UV coating can be applied via most conventional industrial coating applications as well as by silkscreen.

Hot Stamping

Hot Stamping is the use of a malleable metallic material applied to the print surface by using heat and pressure.adds reflective properties to various elements of your design and can serve to add a bit of luxury to your project.

Typically, it is used on text and the logo on the page or when certain elements call for it.
