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.

matt lamination

Matt Lamination

Matt lamination gives an elegant effect that offers great quality for products where image and first impressions mean everything, which is why it is a common choice for many.

Unlike gloss lamination, matt lamination can provide a softer look, as it can produce lower contrast on darker colours. Whilst forming a protective coating over the print, it does not provide the same level of protection as gloss lamination and can be prone to scratching.

Gloss Lamination

With gloss lamination the shine finish gives the artwork a much more striking look, the light reflects off the laminate, and gives colours, in particularly blacks, a richer depth.  Gloss lamination is more high profile, it adds a high gloss sheen often used on brochure covers, menus, magazine covers or presentation folders offering a high impact option.

Gloss lamination is also a durable choice as it repels dirt, scratches and fingerprints with ease. If the laminate does come in contact with dirt, it is easily wiped clean due to its glossy texture.

Spot UV Printing

Simply put, spot UV refers to where you apply a UV Varnish (or Coating) to a specific area of your print.

This can be a clear varnish over an image, logo or text which the user will see glinting when the print is tilted towards the light.  It is applied by an additional UV ink tank (clear) on specific areas of the print after the colours have been laid down. The clear “ink” layer is then cured by exposure to a UV lamp.  

When spot UV is applied over a matt laminated single colour, text and logos appear as if by magic when the light catches the UV layer.

Paper Sizes

A Sizes for Posters or Paper

The simplest way to explain the aspect ratio of A sizes is that two of one size will equate to one of the next size up. For example, 2 x A4 sheets side by side (portrait) will equate to 1 x A3 page and 2 x A3 pages side by side (portrait) will equate to 1 x A2 size.

The larger the size of paper the smaller the number – A10 is the smallest and A0 size is the largest.

Stapled Booklets – in A5, A4 and square formats

Stapled booklets are a great way of communicating information in an easy to read, compact format.

Booklets also create a more professional impact than just sending out a standard A4 document printed on a standard business printer.  Take advantage of a heavier weight of paper / card for the cover, and add some special touches as lamination or spot UV to really lift your stapled booklet and make it want to be read.

Use professional pictures and graphics to help navigate around your booklet and make it easy to read.  Mixing pages with full flood (edge to edge) images opposite pages with text will increase the readers interest, inviting them to continue turning the pages.  Being consistent with your branding will reinforce your corporate identity.

If you have your design all laid up then great, simply upload your file with your order when you have chosen your options and your stapled booklets will be on their way in a jiffy.
