LABEL BY TYPE
Labels By Type
Clear High Build Varnish
Clear High Build Varnish is typically used for raised spot gloss varnish embellishments. This is due to the UVLB7 being suitable for very high ink deposits, which are required to raise the embellishment.
Gloss varnish gives good edge definition and is flexible and transparent. We can adjust the hight of the varnish build by changing the tread count of the mesh and the hight of the emulsion applied on to the screen when its produced.
The high build pattern effect is created by controlling the screen and the varnish used to develop the high build varnish design, height, and texture; which also works very well for tactile warning labels.
Fine detail requires a high thread count and low emulsion on the screen and will generally be used as a low-profile varnish effect whereas large solid areas require a more open mesh and a higher emulsion coat to generate a nice height on the varnish such as braille and tactile warning triangles.

What Is Braille?
Braille is a form of written language used by people with little to no vision to help them read and understand materials. Braille is a pattern of raised dots read by fingertips.
Applications For Braille Labels
Spot varnishing is ideal for Braille labels that contain specific instructions for a product. The instructions can be clearly raised for people to read easily with their fingertips. This application use is often found on pharmaceutical labels.
Grip Strips For Products
Spot varnishing is also used to create grip strips on products for a user with sight impairments so they know how to grasp objects without hurting themselves or causing damage safely.
Tactile Warning Triangles
Tactile warning labels are required for dangerous materials such as chemicals. Using spot varnishing for tactile warning levels raises the warning, allowing the user to clearly distinguish the triangle on the packaging, alerting them to the warning.
