Why not enhance your printed product with one of our special effects – stand out from the crowd!


special effect emboss


Embossing is when the image or heading on paper or card is raised so it stands out in relief. Debossing recesses the image. Blind embossing is where the image is raised but not coloured.


Varnishing enhances the appearance of printed photographs as the coating reflects back the light and makes colours appear richer and more vivid. A matt varnish softens the appearance and reduces glare.


special effect foil


The application of metallic foil, usually gold or silver, to paper or card. By itself or on a coloured background, foiling is very effective and adds prestige. Can be combined with embossing.


Related to varnishing but achieving a much more denser and effective result, Spot UV Coating uses ultra violet to achieve a striking coating on printed material. Used on photographs or logos, the image will appear noticeably richer and more luxurious. It draws attention and identifies the printing as premium literature.


special effect metallic


Metallic inks give a metallic gleam that is just not possible using regular inks. These inks contain actual metal particles which reflect light. They reproduce best on a coated stock.


Further embellishments might include die-cutting shapes into your printwork for emphasis or to craft a product (such as a gift box), or laminating for durability, or simply to look good.
