Varnishing & Coating
Varnishing Examples

Varnishing - A liquid shellac or plastic coating put on a printed piece adding a glossy, satin, or dull finish. Part of the printing or finishing process, it is applied like a final layer of ink after a piece is printed. It may be clear or tinted. Varnish can be used functionally to reduce glare or enhance readability or as a design element to smooth, highlight, add texture, or create added dimension.
