- Liquid Foil: In gold, silver, or bronze, this in-line coating can replicate the look of foil stamping.
- Gloss UV: High gloss appearance brings shiny metalics and wet objects to life.
- Raised UV: This coating gives a dimensional and realistic feel to images like water droplets or ice cubes. Get best results on coated stocks.
- Dull UV: The texture of the subject matter is best accentuated by the Dull UV process. The softer tactile feel of the coating lends itself well to this subject.

- Satin Aqueous: Best used on coated stock, this coating gives a silky appearance, making it perfect for contrasting images.
- Dull Aqueous: Provides a rich feel. Perfect for subject matters that are detailed but not glossy. Resists scuffs and scratches better than other coatings and is best used on coated stocks.

We also own one of the few Heidelberg Spectrophotometers that can match colors ten times more accurately than the human eye. Color matching is checked multiple times during each press run to ensure perfect color consistency.
