Glow in the Dark

Glow in the dark adds instant engagement to your book covers, stationery and more through the application of phosphorescent ink on top of a light-reflecting base.

Heat Sensitive

Add dramatic impact to your brand through heat sensitive printing, which uses thermochromic inks to hide then reveal your design when it is touched – ideal for book covers and beyond.

An advanced form of foil stamping that involves image versus dye transfer, sleeking gives your brand instant enchantment by applying metallic, holographic, matte or gloss finishes to your covers, business cards and more.

Silk Screening

Adding a high-quality allure to book covers, silk screening entails etching a screen with your design, text or logo, and applying it to a cloth-like print medium – no die necessary.

Embossing

Helping your brand to “jump off the page” – and shelves – embossing adds dynamic 3D impact to logos, covers, text or imagery through a process that elevates your design from its surrounding surface.

Debossing

A distinguished solution for your cover, stationery and beyond, debossing impresses your brand design into your print medium for a “branded” or “sunken in” effect.

A great way to establish your brand, antiquing involves glazing a base finish to give your covers, artwork, and posters aged or “antique” elegance, and intriguing color.
