Soft Touch Lamination: The Basics

Lamination: Soft Touch Satin


Unique soft feel

Soft-touch lamination, sometimes referred to as suede or velvet lamination, is an off-line process applied to presentation products after printing. It is a clear, soft film adhered to the press sheet, providing a matte finish and suede-like soft feel to a presentation folder. It is great with dark and light colors, and gives raised spot UV a great clarity and unique effects with lower densities. It also provides the sharpest detail of any coating for raised spot UV and raised digital foil. Soft-touch has gained popularity for printing on presentation folders, business cards, and other promotional products in recent years as a unique, premium finish.

  1. HI:
    I’m looking for a 9 x 12 finished size, 2 pocket folder, with Soft Touch Lam both inside and out.
    Front cover features Spot UV as well. The kicker is that it needs to be 20# cover or higher ..perhaps a 24#. Also prints 4/4 full bleed.

    Is that within your capabilities?

  2. I’m looking for a soft laminate black matte business card with silver foil lettering on the front and solid silver foil on the back. Can you give me a quote on 500 & 1000?
