Types of Specialty Printing Available:
Embossing: this is the three-dimensional, textured effect that gives your image or text a raised surface on the print area.
Debossing: this is the opposite to embossing, when the words or images are indented into the paper or cardstock.
Foiling: also known as foil stamping, this involves applying a foil (usually metallic like silver foil or gold foil) to your print job to create a decorative finish.
Metallic Inks: metallic particles (popular colours include gold tones, silver and copper) are added to ink in a spot colour, single plate print set up (traditional CMYK colours use four plates).
Holographic Effects: whether you need added security to your document or are looking for a decorative finish, holograms can be printed onto almost anything from plastic to special types of paper.
Fluro Inks: like metallics, true neon or fluorescent printing requires a special kind of pigmented ink.
PMS Printing: if you want true colour matching, PMS (Pantone Matching System) via offset printing will give you superior results.
Spot UV or Folding Spot: this is a type of card stock that will give your document a high gloss finish.
Celloglazing: also known as cello, this is a type of laminating that can be a gloss or matte finish on your cardstock for the ultimate professional look and feel to your document.
