Materials

Premium specialty papers, cloths and leathers caress the eyes and touch with their individual surfaces.

Uncoated materials have no added layer on the surface and have a natural feel. They are porous and inks bleeds into the material reducing the print  detail so embellishments like foil stamping and blind debossing are the best  options for effective branding. Uncoated materials are available with many different embossing, colours, and weights and have a matt finish.

Coated materials are generally coated with nylon, polyester, acrylic or an Aqueous (water based) coating. They have a smoother finish and are not too porous. Ink will sit on a coated surface and take longer to dry thus producing sharper and brighter print because the ink doesn’t bleed into the material. Coated materials provide great durability and come in a variety of gloss or matt finishes.
