WHY COATING

Preserve. Protect. Embellish. Enhance. The ink that hits the page is meaningless unless it arrives to its destination unscathed and intact. Secure your print with a layer of coating, and while you're at it, why not activate the other senses, such as touch or smell? With specialty coatings like soft touch or grit, your piece is sure to stand out.

WHY PRIMING

Save time and money by priming your own substrate in-house. No longer are you limited to what the supplier has. By coating your own media, you open your doors to a vast world of substrates. With more options, come more opportunities. Knowing that your team personally primed the sheet will help increase your success rate and customer satisfaction.
