Frequently Asked Questions

What is Spot UV varnishing?

Spot UV varnish is a process that produces a high gloss varnish on the printed sheet. It can be used on logo’s, pictures or as a feature graphic. It’s especially effective on matt laminated stocks.

What is the difference between aqueous varnish and normal varnish?

Aqueous varnish is water-base and dries hard to provide a protective matt or gloss coating. Conventional matt, satin and gloss varnishes are similar to ink and used mostly for sealing or to give a special design effect.

Why we prefer artwork supplied as a PDF.
