Finishing


BoDa offers various finishing in house as below:

Lamination (matt or glossy or touch): Applying thin transparent plastic sheets to both sides of paper, providing strongest protection.  It appears shinier with glossy and dull with matt.  You can feel it like leather or PU when you touch it.

Aqueous Coating: Coating in a water base and applied like ink by a printing press to enhance the printing underneath.  BonDa applies aqueous coating process for all of our coating processes unless otherwise required by our clients.

Varnish: A clear liquid applied to printed surfaces for looks and protection.

Spot Varnish: Varnish used to high light a specific part of the printed sheet.

Gloss Varnish: Often used to enhance the appearance of printed photographs, as the coating reflects back the light and makes colors appear richer and more vivid. A gloss coating can add impact to your print, especially in sales or promotional material.

Matte Varnish: Gives the printed surface a non-glossy, smooth look. This type of seal is sometimes considered to “soften” the appearance of a printed image.  Small text in a leaflet or booklet is easier to read on a surface coated with matt vanish as the coasting scatters the light, reducing glare.

Silk | Satin Varnish: This coating represents the “middle ground” between gloss and matte varnish, being neither as glassy as a true gloss, nor as subtle as a matt. But in China, we use Matte varnish to represent it.

Rejection Varnish: It helps much highlighted the varnish area meanwhile some dot feeling can be applied on surface for obtaining some special feeling.

UV Coating | Varnish: Liquid applied to a printed sheet, then bonded and cured with ultraviolet light.

All-over UV Coating | Varnish: UV Coating applied to the whole area of the printed sheet.

Spot UV Coating | Varnish: UV used to high light a specific part of the printed sheet.

Die Cutting: Cutting irregular shapes in paper or paperboard using a die.

Foil stamping: Impressing metallic foil onto paper with a heated die. Gold and silver are most common foil colors while other colors are also available.

Embossing: Pressing an image into paper so that it will create a raised relief

Debossing: Pressing an image into paper so it lies below the surface.

Foil Embossing: Stamping a thin sheet of metallic foil onto a sheet of paper and then embossing a pattern under it, creating a three dimensional raised area, usually text or an image.

Gilding: Normally it is in the book or thick board side area, gold leafing the edges of a book. Silver leaf or other colors are also possible.

Hole Punching:  A process by which holes of a specified size are drilled through a finished, bound catalog or other printed material.

Perforation: The punching of small holes (usually in straight lines) into a sheet of paper, to make a printed area easy to tear off. Used for vouchers, response cards, etc., various levels of ease in removing the perforated area may be achieved through the spacing between the holes.

Scoring: A process whereby a crease is created in a straight line on the substrate, primarily used to allow for ease of folding.
