UV Coated Paper for Postcard Printing

Gloss and shine make your printed promotional material stand out. Among the pieces of mail that every household gets in the USA, your postcard needs to be as different as your imagination can make it. Additionally, the shine on your printed postcard increases the chances of it being read. To this end, UV coating helps to give the glossy shine.

The old technology used in postcard printing was not great: reacting to heat and humidity would bleed the colors and simply ruin the effort. Then there was the issue of scratching as well. Longer drying times usually lost against the delivery times and shipping of “wet” printed material occurred on a regular basis.

What is UV Coating?

UV (Ultra Violet) coating is a process by which the coat is applied in extremely thin layers which hardens and dries instantly when exposed to UV light, hence the name UV coatings. These can be applied during printing postcards (inline) or after the printing has been done (offline). One of the main advantages of UV coating is the fast drying time and the material is immediately ready for binding.

Another feature of UV coating is the ability to coats specific areas of a printed postcard. This light up the specified area and also grabs the attention of the reader. Of course, the entire postcard can be coated to give shine to the total surface.

Highly stable UV coating is the preferred method to give high gloss finishes or very rich matte finishes to the printed materials. The glossiness can be made to give the printed postcard a slippery wet look. If you are promoting a product, UV gloss is the perfect answer to adding pizzazz to the postcard print.

It is a known fact that postcards and other print material have a chance of getting damaged at the corners or scratched on the surface during or after postcard printing. UV coatings provide protection from scratches and make the packet of printed postcards to travel safely.

Some colors come out really well, whether in high gloss or matte finishes. Blacks and blues are the best. This does not mean other colors come out dull. Photographs are ideal for UV coating since they almost pop out of the postcard with extremely high clarity.

To give your photo postcard printing a sophisticated look, use the UV coating in matte finish. The depth of the colors is amazing to look at putting you in the same league as the 5th Avenue advertisers.
