Available Paper Finishes

Going with the right finish can be just as important as selecting the right paper stock and weight. We offer a variety of finishes to suit all tastes/applications and can help you choose the perfect coating for your cards.

Matte Varnish: Non-reflective coating flattens images and softens colors while making text more readable.
Gloss Varnish: Brightens and saturates color and increases contrast with a reflective sheen.
Soft Touch Aqueous: Also known as “velvet touch”, the coating is applied with a roller, which leaves behind a plush, velvety texture.
Gloss UV: Coating is exposed to ultraviolet light which hardens the coating and provides the highest gloss available for printing.

Spot/Strikethrough Applications are Available for All Finishes.
