UV coating is a clear liquid applied to paper substrates and then cured using ultraviolet light for a high gloss-like surface effect.
The UV coating process is done after printing using a UV coating machine.
UV coatings have the capability to bring your artwork designs to life and add a sleeker look to your final packaging design.

Hot Stamping Process
The hot stamping process includes a hot stamping press, a hot stamping die or type, and sometimes a hot stamping foil if you choose to add color to your impression. The hot stamping press contains a heating element that heats up the die or type; the marking cycle starts when the press engages the heated die or type with the foil and transfers the ink from the foil carrier onto the part to be marked. The press then disengages at the end of the marking cycle leaving behind a crisp, permanent, ink impression on the part.

Embossing is the process of creating an impression on an existing surface, and can often be found of a range of products. Glass, metal, cloth and paper are the most common materials that are used for embossing. The process used to create the effect raises the surface of the material, creating another dimension to the product – unlike the results that regular printing or engraving usually provide. Adding an embossed surface to a product establishes a premium quality for your brand, and creates a more tactile experience for the customer.
