Print Finishing Services
Finishing options give you the ability to add an additional unique component to your printed piece. It’s an opportunity to add another layer of creativity to your project. There’s a lot beyond printing that can enhance or devalue your materials. Whatever your finishing needs, we can handle them. Whether your materials: folding, scoring, stapling, perforating, hole punching, trimming, laminating, binding, round cornering, die cutting, or mounting – we can take care of it, and take your materials to a new level.
If you’re going to finish a job, you may as well finish strong – Athens Printing knows how to finish print jobs. We have the equipment in house and the staff to make it happen. Our staff has the skill and experience to find the perfect finishing options that will make your printed materials stand out. No job is too large or too small. Athens Printing takes finishing extremely seriously, and has the capability to offer UV Coating, and various forms of Aqueous Coating (satin, high gloss, soft touch).
Our finishing department can provide a sample printing (known as a “dummy”) if required for your print project. This will allow you to get a sense of the appearance of the finished product before production.
The Importance of Print Finishing
Nothing is worse than having a perfectly designed product, and then having a bad or low quality finish. The benefit of high quality coatings is not only aesthetics, but also protecting products from damage due to general use. Finishing can often have a greater effect on quality than any other part of the process.
