After printing all CMYK pages and the 3 spot colours we needed to print 3 different varnishes, matt, gloss and silk in various combinations. This was a great experiment that resulted in beautiful combinations of different spot colours and varnishes. During the printing of the varnishes we had to be very careful to avoid ghosting effect on the sheets. We will explain this in our technical website pages.
