We offer three standard offset coating options: Gloss, Satin and Matte.
Soft Touch is a coating that, when applied, creates a velvety texture. The paper becomes "soft" to the touch and increases the tactile appeal. Soft Touch coating creates a softer look and feel on printed materials than either aqueous or UV coating, while creating a barrier which is fingerprint resistant.
no-curl coating for uncoated stock
Water is used in the offset printing process, and the process itself, especially with uncoated stock, is susceptible to paper curl. As the printed sheet dries, it can warp and edges can curl, rather than remaining perfectly flat. A no-curl coating reduces or eliminates this problem. We'll let you know if you need to consider it.
gloss primer coat
A gloss primer coat is a wax-free and silicone-free coating for a sheet that will subsequently undergo foil stamping or laminating .
