Lacquer on packaging or presentation material

Definition

Lacquering is a technique that gives packaging and presentation material tangible added value, a special appearance and/or protection. There are different types of lacquer.

 

What is the advantage of lacquering?

Lacquer protects your printed matter, but also makes it more attractive. Partly because it is possible to lacquer the entire product or spot-lacquer. We use lacquer to make photos, texts or logos stand out, for example. We can also apply lacquer in any desired colour. Thanks to certain types of lacquer, we add texture to the packaging and let details stand out in the design. In short, if you are looking to add luxury to your packaging and presentation material, then opt for lacquer.

 

Varnish on packaging or presentation material

Definition

Varnish is like ink, except that it contains no pigment. We apply varnish in the same way as printing ink. The layer of varnish protects and embellishes your printed matter. Thanks to this layer, weather, moisture, and light have less of an impact on your packaging or presentation material. We do not need any extra machines to apply varnish: it is applied during printing.

 

What is the advantage of varnishing?

Varnish protects your printed matter, but also makes it more appealing. Especially because it is possible to varnish the entire product or to spot-varnish. We apply varnish to make photos, texts or logos stand out, for example.

For which applications?

Varnish adds an extra touch of luxury to our luxury packaging.

 

Overview of lacquer finishes

> High-gloss lacquer / gloss lacquer
Thin lacquer layer with (high) gloss effect. The lacquer is smooth and has a mirror effect.
> Dispersion lacquer
Thin, complete lacquer layer with matt finish. Protects your packaging and presentation material.
> Soft touch lacquer
Lacquer that feels soft to the touch, as if it had a rubber base.
> Spot UV lacquer
Spot-lacquer or UV lacquer allows us to highlight a specific part of the design.
> Barrier lacquer
Dispersion lacquer with which we can provide a grease barrier on one, or both, sides of the cardboard. We apply it in one or two runs. With barrier lacquer, direct contact with food is perfectly possible.


 

 

Conventional gloss or matt varnish layer

Gloss varnish gives a certain shine to your packaging or presentation material. However, there is no comparison when it comes to gloss varnish dispersion applied by a special lacquer tower. This is also true for matt varnish.

UV Varnish

In addition to ordinary varnish, there is also UV varnish. Ordinary varnish is dried by air and UV varnish is dried by UV light. UV varnish dries faster, which means that the varnish is harder and offers better protection against scratches and moisture. Here, too, spot UV varnish, which leads to striking effects, is an option.
