Over Gloss - Varnish


An Over gloss/varnish is a liquid coating applied to a printed surface to add a clear glossy, matte, satin, or neutral finish.

Here are the types of varnishes:



Gloss Varnishing

A gloss varnish gives the printed surface a glossy, sheen look.

Matte Varnishing

A matte varnish gives the printed surface a non-glossy, smooth look.

Silk or Satin Varnishing

A satin varnish gives the printed surface a neither a high gloss or matte, but the middle ground.

UV Varnishing

Ultraviolet (UV) varnishing is a process for achieving an even more striking type of coating on your printed material.

All-over UV varnish

Simply put, this is a UV seal applied all over the printed surface.

Spot UV Varnish

A spot varnish is applied to chosen spots (areas) of a printed piece. This has the affect of highlighting and drawing attention to that part of the design.
