Printbar Uncovered’s Digital ‘Screen’ Varnish application wrapper adds the wow factor!

Varnish embellishments provide the added value that brings labels to life. With Printbar Uncovered you can enable clients to offer new enhancements and help them win new business with brands

Creativity and innovation in this area, especially when used in combination with variable data can truly deliver the wow factor by creating texture, accentuating certain elements of the label artwork, adding an element of luxury to the look and feel of the label!

For label production, rotary screen has been the preferred choice – the thickness, flatness, texture and depth that provides the desired tactile, eye-catching quality to enhance shelf appeal.

Printbar Uncovered’s Digital ‘Screen’ Varnish application wrapper overcomes these challenges whilst delivering the smooth high laydown, quality finish required.
