Use elegant varnishing to enhance your next printing projects

At 1800 Printing, we take pride in offering our varnishing services, a premium finishing touch that has garnered significant popularity among discerning New York businesses seeking to elevate their printed materials. Varnishing is not merely an aesthetic enhancement; it serves as a protective layer that shields the product from fingerprints, dust, and other environmental factors. This process involves applying a transparent liquid coating over printed surfaces, which is then cured under ultraviolet light or heat to create a durable finish. Our clients appreciate the dual benefits of varnishing: it intensifies color vibrancy and depth while extending the lifespan of their printed collateral.

Our expertise allows us to tailor the varnish application to suit specific client needs—be it gloss for a striking sheen that makes colors pop or matte for an understated elegance that softens visual impact. We also offer spot varnishing, which strategically highlights areas of a design for added texture and contrast. This level of customization is particularly sought after by New York's dynamic business landscape where brand differentiation is key. The tactile dimension introduced by varnishing can transform conventional print into an interactive experience, engaging recipients on multiple sensory levels.

Incorporating our varnishing service into your print production process not only enhances the final product but also conveys a message of quality and attention to detail—a reflection of your brand's commitment to excellence. As trends in printing evolve, 1800 Printing remains at the forefront, adopting innovative techniques like varnishing to meet the sophisticated demands of our clientele in New York City's fast-paced market environment.

What is Varnishing?

Varnishing in printing refers to the application of a clear liquid coating to a printed surface, which is then cured through ultraviolet light or heat, creating a protective shield over the print. This process enhances durability, resistance to wear and tear, and adds aesthetic appeal by providing various finishes such as gloss, satin, or matte. Varnish can be applied to specific areas (spot varnishing) for emphasis or across the entire surface (flood varnishing) for uniform protection.

At 1800 Printing, we employ state-of-the-art varnishing techniques tailored to meet our clients' diverse needs. Our expertise allows us to recommend and apply the most suitable type of varnish that will enhance the visual impact of their printed materials while extending longevity. Whether it's adding a luxurious gloss finish to business cards or protecting large-format prints with a robust matte coat, our precision-driven approach ensures high-quality results that reflect our commitment to excellence in print craftsmanship.
