Gloss Aqueous Coating

Gloss aqueous coating is an in-line coating for presentation folders as it is applied directly onto wet ink on an offset printing press. It provides a subtle gloss shine and some protection from scuffing, while keeping color rich and vibrant on the pocket folders. We use an aqueous coating on almost all 4-color presentation product work and occasionally with 1 and 2 spot color folder printing as well, if needed to help protect the ink from rubbing or scuffing. It is a very cost-efficient process, a large part of the reason it is the most commonly used coating in the entire printing industry today. This coating is most commonly used on economy four-color process presentation folders.
