Need the whole printed surface seems gloss or matt, and protect the printing ink. After all, it will make a good touch feel. Corrugated fiberboard boxes are examples of laminated structures, where an inner core provides rigidity and strength, and the outer layers provide a smooth surface. Laminating paper products, such as photographs, can prevent them from becoming creased, faded, water damaged, wrinkled, stained, smudged, abraded, or marked by grease or fingerprints. Photo identification cards and credit cards are almost always laminated with plastic film. Also, lamination is needed for further finish steps like UV varnishing, spot UV, hot foil stamping, as it is a good temper material to bear all kinds of heat and handling. To draw a conclusion, it is good to choose lamination for:
- Away from dirt and dust.
- Protection from fading and color changes.
- A professional quality look and feel.
It is a process that the oil being widely distributed on the printed surface. The aim is to prevent the printed paper from scratch and sticker with each other.

If your package needs somewhere stand out of the printing, then spot UV is a good solution. It is always being used for LOGO, cartoon, text and so on. It is being proceeded after offset printing and surface finish (glossy or matt varnishing and lamination).
Hot foil stamping is a specialty printing process that applies heat, pressure, metal dies and foil film to the printed and finished CCNB, kraft paper, art paper and virgin paperboard. The foil comes in rolls in a wide assortment of colors, finishes, and optical effects. Metallic foil is most commonly seen today – particularly gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, and holographic metallic foils, available colors could be chosen from our color chart.
Embossing and debossing are the processes of creating either raised or recessed designs in paper cardboard and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, meanwhile, a debossed pattern is hollow into the surface of the paper cardboard.
