Finishing: Screen printing finishing

Fascinating finishes and effects can be applied to cardboard using the screen printing process, turning the standard into something special. We show you some of the possibilities here.

If you are missing a refinement or have an idea in mind that you don't know how to realise, please ask us. We look forward to your challenge. <Ansprechpartner>


A partial lacquer can be applied to emphasise individual elements.

The lacquers can also be printed over the entire surface or combined with each other.
