Dimensional Raised Ink, Coatings & Varnishes
Thermography. Traditional thermo printing adds value to any piece with a tactile surface quality. As the sheet passes through a heating unit, thermo powder is dropped onto and melted to the ink creating an exquisite raised effect. The process results in a stunning piece that is dry immediately upon completion.
Digital UV Spot Varnish. If you want a high gloss or "wet" look that literally jumps off the page our MGI 3D JETvarnish Evo is at your service. Going above and beyond similar digital enhancement technology, our capabilities offer you a larger choice of coated or uncoated stock, larger sizes, and coating thickness up to 200 microns – as thick as a coin!
Soft Touch Coatings. Great for themed promos, this aqueous printing finish will leave your piece soft to the touch. Sometimes it's even possible to make a printed image feel like the real thing. Ask us how.
Embossing / Debossing
Impressed logos, lettering and graphics are a unique way to draw attention to your printed piece. We offer the option of creating embossed lettering and images using a variety of techniques.
- Blind Emboss – raised image or lettering without the use of ink
- Foil Emboss – combined techniques of Foiling & Embossing produces a highly finished look
- Register Embossing – the embossing of inked images or lettering provides a nice custom finish
- Debossing – recessing an image or lettering into the paper, rather than raising it, for a very unique and stylized finished appearance
Foil Stamping. Heat and pressure on a metallic paper or foil produces a custom design on your finished piece that really gives it that extra something special. A textured spot foil can be used on an award or recognition piece, but it also makes for a great accent finish around dramatic photography and many types of product photography.
Edge painting is a process by which color is applied to the edges of the paper. This can be done in any color, including metallic inks. This technique looks best with thicker paper and is a great way to add a pop of color.
