Lamination can add a matt or gloss finish as well as providing benefits such as rigidity and a greater sheen. Soft touch laminate offers a velvet like feel without dulling of colours which creates a premium impression.



Embossing adds a three dimensional touch to your print. It gives elegance to all kinds of printed materials including stationery and envelopes, invitations and wedding cards.

Spot UV & Foil Blocking

Spot UV

There are many techniques available today to give high impact and set your print apart from your competitors. One of the most popular is Spot UV coating.  This is a gloss varnish that can be strategically placed on certain areas of your print to create a fantastic first impression. It is especially prevalent with business cards and corporate brochures and folders.

Foil Blocking

Foil blocking can provide the ultimate in decorative appeal. Colours are not limited to gold and silver foils, but extend to an impressive range of pigmented, holographic and security foils. Foil blocking can be combined with embossing to enhance the printed message and add luxury. Ideal for certificates.
