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 adds 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 spot gloss varnish are applied, it creates a raised texture which can be used with great visual and tactile effect, especially when the 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 gloss varnish.
