Business Card Finishing Options
There are a number of finishing options you can use to make your business card stand out. Why not give it that extra special look and feel with the following popular options.
A UV Varnish is a liquid coating that is applied to the surface of a sheet which is then dried/cured under an ultra violet light. This has the effect of highlighting and drawing attention to parts of the design, but it also provides the additional visual stimulus of having varied textures on a single printed surface.
MetalFX is a process of mixing metallic silver with a variety of process colours to give the desired effect. The process gives a metallic lustre to the printed image.
Lamination adds a layer of protective coating either gloss or matt to the printed piece. Lamination improves the sturdiness of the piece as well as giving it a level of water resistance. If a gloss laminate is applied to the printed surface, photos and images appear to have more shine and brightness. Matt laminated prints are more subdued but add an elegant finish to the printed surface.
Embossing and Debossing are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse).
Die Cutting is a unique feature that can make your printed piece stand out. Die cutting is a process used to cut paper into a specific shapes using a steel cutting die. Die Cut shapes are endless and gives a printed piece a noticeable and eye-catching finish.
Foiling is the application of metallic or pigmented foil on to a solid surface by application of a heated die. The foil stamp is a permanent process. Foils come in a wide selection of colours and finishes, from the most commonly used metallic gold and silver to foils with pearlescent and holographic effects.
