Spot Varnish Cape Town

Spot gloss varnish is now possible on short runs of digital printing. It’s a great way to enhance your printing by drawing attention to certain areas or providing a subtle reflection in the background. It gets done inline during the print process so the alignment is 100% accurate and with little additional lead time.

There is no minimum quantity required so you can create once off jobs or presentation proofs, apply it as a flood coat or use it to highlight only certain elements on the page, plus it can be used as a security feature when printing sensitive documents – making them hard to forge.

When used in conjunction with metallic inks, the clear varnish has a dual effect: appearing glossy on top of CMYK, but having a matt effect when placed over metallics, resulting in unique positive and negative shifts when viewed in different light. When multiple passes of gloss varnish are applied, it creates a raised texture which can be used with great visual and tactile effect, especially when the gloss varnish is applied over a matt lamination.

The results are different to a traditional UV varnish so chat to us today about how to set up your artwork and get maximum effect using our digital clear varnish. We have handy guidelines available to assist you with setting up your artwork, plus printed samples for you to view to show what can be achieved.

“I rarely feel the need write mails like this, but feel in your case it definitely needs to be said. We use Hotink for all our agency printing and I am continuously blown away by the level of service and quality your team delivers.

Absolutely nothing is to much of a mission or any deadline to tight. Working with your team is an absolute pleasure and it is amazing to know that we can trust you guys to deliver on time and with a standard of quality which we expect from all our suppliers but very seldom get. If everyone in this city delivered work like you guys do our job would be made SO much easier. So again thank you and your team for always going the extra mile, it really is appreciated!”
