Spot UV Varnishing
Spot UV Varnishing is a screen printing process in which selected areas of a design have varnish applied to them to provide a highlighted area. We use state of the art, Sakurai screen presses to ensure a perfect finish and registration.
Film lamination on print is to be found everywhere. In this process, printed sheets have a clear plastic film bonded to them on either one or both sides. Print is laminated to protect it from stains and moisture, to increase its strength and durability and to add intensity to the ink colours. It can be more eye catching and professional. It also helps to prevent board from cracking. We use the latest CellCoat machinery for Film Lamination, currently the most energy efficient laminators available.
