The benefits of coating.

An overall coating (varnish, aqueous, film lamination or UV) is typically used for four reasons:

  • To speed up drying time
  • To prevent offsetting during finishing (cutting, folding, etc.)
  • To protect sheet from fingerprints and smudging
  • To enhance the images and colors

Symmetry tip: Choose the coating that works for you—varnish is the most economical of the coatings, aqueous dries faster and provides better rub protection than varnish, and UV creates the glossiest finish. Keep in mind that UV is the costliest of the three types of coating and use may be limited by production issues.
