This method is a four-step process, adding a step which allows for more dynamic options. In this method, the first step is to print everything besides the portion or elements that are going to have foiling or spot finishing applied. The second step of this process is to laminate the entire sheet with a special gloss or matte laminate. The laminated prints are then rerun through the printer, where ink is only applied to the areas where foil finishing or spot UV is desired. The final step is to run the prints through the Sleeking laminator, which applies the desired finish to the areas that the ink is applied.
These Sleeking methods are easier to use than the older Foil Stamping method, they take less time to print and finish and, are less expensive than Foil Stamping. This is a great way to give your printing project a luxurious touch and help your prints stand out.
