Soft Touch & Spot Gloss Brochures
Soft touch is a soft to the touch, luxurious finish that gives the brochures a soft, supple look and feel, which softens colors, reduces contrast and gives an overall lighter, muted appearance. Soft touch feels like elegant paper but is actually a premium plastic film, a dull thin film laminate that's applied to both sides of the brochures. Soft touch film is tear resistant (not proof), it is also used to protect the colors (especially dark colors) from rubbing off the edge of the paper.
Spot gloss is a glossy coating that is only applied to a specific section of the brochure. The selected area is singled out and coated with a glossy finish while the rest remains matte/soft touch. The goal of this process is to give your card some contrast by highlighting both the soft touch film and the spot gloss. You have the option of adding the spot gloss to any area of the brochure, for example over a logo, a certain section of a graphic, or even as an elaborate pattern.
Note: Before the final ultra silk film & spot gloss is applied an initial aqueous coating is first applied. Aqueous is a protective coating that helps with the drying process when printing and also provides added durability.
