[sections] [section title=”Strike-Thru Varnishes”]
Strike-Thru Varnish effects are a cost-effective way to enhance your printing or packaging by creating a “step-off” gloss/dull effect. Strike-Thru effect can be created by either UV or Conventional print. Strike-Thru consists of a two-part process; the spot application of varnish (by a printing plate) and gloss coating application (anilox coating unit). A pattern of varnish is first applied followed immediately by an overall gloss coating. When the varnish comes in contact with the gloss coating, the gloss coating “dives” creating a remarkable gloss/dull special effect. This technique is a great way to push the creative envelope by incorporating into your graphics and packaging work. The technique can be produced by either means of UV or conventional but for best results a UV application is recommended.
