What Exactly Is Meant by 'Digital Finishes'?
As the name suggests, finishes are the last step taken during the production of labels. Their purpose can be to protect or decorate the labels, giving them a unique, high-quality appearance. However, until now, embellishment processes such as hot foil stamping or embossing required specially produced tools, and this meant that only large runs were advantageous to amortise those costs.

Digital Finishing for Roll Labels
What makes digital finishing really unique? Just as in digital printing, digital finishes are applied to specific points on the material using a PDF print file. Unlike traditional finishes, digital finishes do not require any customised tool: the finish is applied digitally. This not only produces unique, high-quality labels, but is also an incredibly time- and resource-efficient production solution.
This combination of digital printing and digital finishing opens up new perspectives, making it possible to create different references featuring fine finishes, even for short runs.
Digital Partial Varnish (Spot Varnish)
With a digital partial varnish, also known as a spot varnish, selected areas of the printed product are refined with varnish at certain points and are thus visually and haptically emphasized from the rest of the surface. Our digital partial varnishing establishes new standards for exclusive finishing and gives your products a distinctive look. Thanks to the digital finishing machine, the paint is partially applied – tools are of course not necessary here. This saves costs, time and resources!
Digital foiling is a finishing method that allows you to enhance specific areas of the label by applying a foil to precise points. Unlike hot foil stamping, which requires specially made equipment, applying digital foil only requires a PDF print file and an adhesive varnish that serves as a base for the foil. This allows you to optimize costs and time. You can enrich your labels with holographic foils, gold, silver, copper foils (and many other colors on request). You will have the highest quality at competitive prices, even for small runs. Make your products shine!
