Printing offers each business the opportunity to set themselves apart from the rest. It comes down to not knowing, and understanding the potential of what print marketing can offer. All it takes is a splash of the right gloss to turn your marketing collateral into something exciting.

What Are The Differences?

Let’s start with “Full-UV Gloss.” This particular coating presents an outstanding shiny layer that is very rich when applied to paper. The product will be nothing short of eye-catching due to its lustrous appearance. Other than its captivating display, Full-UV possesses various benefits such as…

  • This gloss does a fantastic job at holding onto its superior quality and fighting off damage. If you plan to advertise your business through mailing Postcards, Full-UV is the ideal choice. It will resist smudging, marks, and any abrasion that may occur. Due to its substantial layer it can defend against most wear and tear.
  • This gloss is known to bring out the crisp and fine details. Photography, logos, and text will have a precise look and finish.
  • When Full-UV is applied to any print product it speeds up the drying process. This leads to faster production and shipping times for you!
