Semi-Gloss Machine Varnish – If you do not specify, this is the finish that will likely be used on your product. It is applied as a liquid, on top of the printing, aiding in drying, and protecting the ink from smearing.
 
High Gloss Machine Varnish – This high gloss finish is applied as a liquid, on top of the printing. It is great for photos and lots of other design types.
 
Matte Machine Varnish – This matte finish is applied as a liquid, on top of the printing, giving the product a slightly silky feel instead of a semi-gloss or gloss. a popular choice for innersleeves and booklets.
 
UV Gloss Laminate – This is the glossiest gloss finish we offer, as a roll of gloss laminate is applied on top of the printing, adding additional structure to the product as well as a stellar look.
 
Matte Laminate – This is the most expensive and arguably nicest finish we offer. A matte laminate is applied on top of the printing, adding a silky feel and additional structure to the product. Perfect for a high end gatefold jacket!
 
Reverseboard Printing – When used in combination with one of our stocks having an uncoated reverse-side, we can print on that uncoated side, giving the final product a rougher, uncoated look. This is perfect for designs based on paintings, in addition to many other brilliant applications. One of our least expensive finishes, reverseboard printing can really turn a piece of printwork from something that looks mass produced into a work of art. It is important to note that because the stock is uncoated, it has a tendency to soak up more ink, and even though we compensate for that, can result in a washed out look, depending on your design. 
 
Spot UV (or Matte) Varnish – We are able to apply a liquid gloss or matte varnish only in a particular (custom) area of your design, highlighting just that part in the desired finish. This is most commonly used in combination with another finish to increase the contrast in finishes – for example, Spot UV Gloss on Matte Laminate. Please note, Spot Gloss/Matte often does not appear well on things made with reverseboard printing, as the uncoated nature of the stock absorbs more of the applied varnish than usual.
