Coatings Aqueous Coating This clear coating is used to protect your printed pieces. It provides a high-gloss surface that deters dirt and fingerprints. Improves the durability of postcards as they go through the mail, and protects business cards as they get shuffled between clients. It also looks beautiful on brochures, catalog covers, and stand-alone flyers. Learn more... UV Coating UV coating, often called liquid lamination, is a highly protective, ultra-shiny gloss coating that we apply over aqueous coating and then cure on a special machine using ultraviolet light. The solvent-free UV coating provides an extremely hard finish that's chemical and abrasion resistant. It makes details really pop! On deep colors, it results in a stunning, almost wet appearance. Perfect when you want a durable, environmentally-friendly piece with a richer, high-end look and feel. NOTE: UV Coating cannot be used on the addressed side of mailed pieces, unless the address is printed first and then the coating is applied. Learn more... Soft Touch® Coating This coating creates a velvety texture. The paper becomes "soft" to the touch and increases the tactile appeal. Softer look and feel than aqueous or UV coating, while creating a barrier which is fingerprint resistant. It dries fast, is non-yellowing, and is eco-friendly. Luxurious and sophisticated are words often used to describe the finished product. Learn more..
