Overprint Varnish


Process and application


Varnish is sprayed with a UV-high performance lamp on the paper.

Partial UV- varnishing sets accents in the print image, the play of light and shade brings out nuances which are hidden at first sight.


In particular effective is the contrast of high varnished details on a mat-coated ground.


A practical application of the partial UV-varnishing is to spare, for example, glue spots or address fields within varnished surfaces.
