Uncoated Finish

Uncoated finish does exactly what it says on the tin.  We print onto the uncoated paper stock and then do nothing else to it.

However, the basic uncoated paper that we use can be matt, silk or gloss and so the type of base paper you select will affect the way you print comes out.  Matt uncoated gives a flat matt finish. Silk uncoated gives a smoother feel and a slight sheen to the print.  Gloss uncoated gives a more shiny base layer which is good for photos, but bad to write on with a ballpoint pen.

UV Varnish | Coating

UV Varnish

UV Varnish (or Coating) is applied by an additional UV ink tank (clear) on the whole page after the colours of your print have been laid down. The clear “ink” layer is then cured by exposure to a UV lamp.  

You can choose either a matt or a gloss UV varnish depending on the finish that you are trying to create.  A gloss finish is great for flyers that have photos and images – the UV varnish will enhance the colour.

Although these posters are not fully waterproof you can optionally select our UV Varnish (UV Coating) which will give the posters some degree of water repellency.

If you need a fully weatherproof poster please email us and we will be able to help you by printing on a PVC based substrate.

Decide on what paper stock you would like it printed on :

    • Budget – our 130gsm coated matt paper

Add the finishing touch

    • UV Varnish (UV Coating) applies a single sided glossy finish to your poster to add to the colour vibrancy and water repellency. 

Then just upload your image file (don’t forget the bleed) as a .pdf, .ai, .jpeg or .tiff and you’re done!
