Soft Touch Aqueous Seal – Velvet Smooth

Soft Touch Water-Based Print Finish

If you are looking for something a little special to finish your print why not check out Soft Touch Aqueous seal. It’s a translucent water based seal applied in-line on our printing press. It has a soft, tactile and velvety feel to the touch.

As its water based, it means the print can be recycled and it doesn’t contain any harmful CFCs. At Kingfisher Press we apply the soft touch aqueous seal as we print so it doesn’t require any specialist finishing equipment or extra production time.

Using a water-based finish or seal can help lift your print to the next level with minimal cost. Whether you want a gloss shiny finish, a seal with anti-bacterial properties or a soft to the touch velvet finish we will have a seal that will help enhance your print.

You can’t really tell from a picture just how lovely soft touch aqueous seal is – contact us for a sample so you can feel for yourself.
