Special Effects for Offset Packaging (500 minimum)

One of the things that separates us from our sea of competitors, are our very affordable custom options for printed packaging. If you want your product to stand out from the crowd, here are some great ways to make that happen.


special effects die cutCustom Die-cuts
Whether you are looking to cut out a shape, text, or an image, die-cuts can be an effective way to entice your customers to peer behind the scene into the heart of your project. <call for quote>
special effects emboss debossEmboss / Deboss
From simple to intricate, Embossing or Debossing is a great way to add a new level of texture to your product. Raising text or images up from the level of the stock is called "emboss" and indenting lower than the stock is called "deboss." This effect can bring style to a package like no other process can. <See below for cost estimates>
special effects spot foilSpot Foil
Available in a myriad of highly reflective colors and prismatic effects. Spot Foil can really help your text or logo POP. Send us your graphic that you want to see in foil and we will send you a quote. <See below for cost estimates>
special effects spot uvSpot UV
Add this high gloss finish to emphasize certain features in your artwork, allowing it to stand out from the rest of the packaging. To create even more visual contrast, we can apply the Spot UV Gloss over matte varnish or matte lamination. (Note: matte finishes mark easier than gloss finishes.) <See below for cost estimates>
special effects spot pms metallicSpot Metallic
Using a metallic ink (like silver or gold) can add a bit of shimmer to your packaging. These inks are more subtle than foil, and have the advantage of being printed as a halftone or tint dot pattern over full flood images or solid colors to create new effects. <call for quote>
special effects spot pms metallicSpot Pantone
We can also add spot Pantone colors to your packaging for instances when you need to be as color accurate as possible, or print a color that is outside the capabilities of the CMYK color model. <+$175/color up to 2 colors>


special effects spot pms metallicFoil / Rainbow Stock
For some amazing results, we can also print onto stock that has one side covered by reflective foil (silver, gold, rainbow, or fisheye lens). These stocks catch the light for a unique and beautiful effect. <click the image for examples>
