This is an academic project, a book of graphic production, about analog and mechanical print finishes.
Whether we are doing a book, flyer or other graphic product, your impression may not be the end point of its production. Printing may still go through other procedures to which we give the name of finishes, made after printing, and they can be simple or complex.
This book talks about and shows samples of each type of finish on the market today: overprint varnish, collage, embossing, emboss glitter, lamination, polyethylene lamination, lamination bopp and holographic bopp, fold and crease, cutting, stitching, etc.
After we had contact with a large number of printing companies, our group got a new vision of what can be done, its production speed and even its level of quality. We have also learned about the existential limitations in each finish and innovation.
