Meeting Description:

Standard #5: Special Effects & Finishing Techniques

Special Effects, the focus of Volume 5 of The Standard, shows designers how printing can be dimensional, tactile and sometimes interac­tive. The techniques shown here may look like magic, but many are easy for designers to prepare and can be done inline on a conven­tional press. Numerous foil-stamping techniques, embossing/ debossing, engraving/thermography, varnish/aqueous/UV coating techniques, strike-through, laser die-cutting, lenticular printing, flocking, and a wide array of specialty inks and spot colors are but a few of the special effects and finishing techniques implemented to make this one of the most unique, educational and  inspiring printed pieces to compliment Sappi’s Standard series.  All it takes are a few printing tips, the right paper, and letting your imagination go. The Standard #5 from Sappi is an educational refer­ence piece that combines the technical with the creative.
