Finishing
You can choose between UV coating (matt, glossy) or lamination (matt, glossy, Soft Touch) as a finishing type.

UV coating is a state-of-the-art finishing method. It enhances the optics and the feel of your product. UV coating is a lacquer that hardens instantly upon exposure to UV light. It results in an abrasion-resistant, tough, surface which, depending on the selection of gloss or matt, can withstand high stress and optically enhance your print product.

Lamination is a finishing method with a wafer-thin foil. This kind of lamination ensures the stability and protection of your print product and increases durability. Due to the coating, colour effect may vary compared to products without lamination.

The following products have optional finishing:

Flyers, folded leaflets, business cards, postcards, greetings cards, advertising posters, wall calendars, desk calendars and pocket calendars.

In order to enhance the finishing effect, we recommend a matt finishing with silk finish paper and a gloss finishing with gloss finish paper.

Please note that the colour of your product may vary slightly due to the extra coating/foil sheet.

Creasing is an additional refinement, which prevents the folded spine from breaking (flaking of ink). Especially with stronger paper grammages and with a particularly opaque color application creasing is recommended. We recommend creasing for papers from 170gsm. For all folded products with a paper grammage of 250gsm, natural and recycled papers and all laminated greeting cards
