Applications include brochures, invitations, luxury packaging and any application where an outstanding homogenous, matt surface is required. Skin is suitable for widely used print techniques including Digital Printing, offset lithography, letterpress, embossing, debossing, silk-screening, die-stamping and foil blocking. A pre-test is recommended for thermography. To ensure maximum clarity, we recommend screen ruling of 175dpi. Sealers can be used to avoid marking during further processing and handling, although the papers’ matt aspect may be compromised depending on the choice of sealer and coat weight. Round holes perform best. Not suitable for desktop laser and monochrome inkjet printers.
