Print finish options


Add the perfect final touch to your packaging. We offer a full suite of finishing options: Lamination, spot UV varnishes, embossing, debating and foiling.

Our expert team are happy to advise on what finishes will work best for your project.


Silk, gloss & matt - A thin film offers extra protection to the printed image and gives the most vibrant finish as an all over coating.

Coating and varnish options.

Inline Selective spot coating - silk, gloss & matt are the most common these are much more subtle but more cost effective especially on long print run for high order quantities

Offline Selective spot varnishes - silk, gloss, matt and velvet - these varnishes are much more vibrant that inline selective spot coating which is done on press.


Embossing & Debossing.

Give your packaging a tactile look and feel.


We can provide common gold and silver metallic foils as well as custom foils.

Window Patching / Apertures.

Apertures allow the contents to be seen and touched on the shelf.

Window patch is great for providing the customer a good idea of what they are buying while still offering protection for the contents.

Glueing options.

Different styles of packaging will require different machine glueing options. The most straightforward are:

  • Straight line glued - Used in tuck end cartons and envelope base cartons.
  • Crash lock glue - A crash lock base carton is stronger and fast to assemble.
  • Skillet cartons - Are designed to be glued during packing, which is good for cereal boxes.
  • Sidewall glued - Make base and lid style boxes quicker to assemble.

Our packaging experts are here to help you get the finish, your after.

All finishing effects will be affected by the material, print spec and graphic design for any printed packaging project.  If you need advice on what wishes would be most effective for your custom packaging or project then our packaging experts customer service team are here to help.
