Mylar Gloss/Matte

Design Considerations


7 to 24 pt. coated stock is recommended. 100 lb. coated stocks may tear when separated and are not recommended. Curling will be evident if a lighter stock is used, and coating is applied only to one side. For best results, coated stocks are recommended over uncoated stocks.

Complementary Processes

Mylar Gloss has the added feature of glueability.
Mylar Matte can be Spot UV coated; however, testing is recommended first.

Alternative Processes

For a comparable finish to OPP Gloss, you may wish to choose Mylar High Gloss Film Lamination. For alternative matte coatings, you may wish to consider Lay-flat Matte or Mylar Matte Film Lamination.

General Coating and Lamination Processes

Offset spray should be kept to a minimum. Low-wax, nonbleeding inks should be used. Metallic inks are not recommended. Sufficient time must be allowed for inks to dry before a coating is applied.

Rhodamine red, reflex blue and purple should be avoided if possible. Your ink supplier can recommend inks, or call us for a complementary test and recommendations.

Mylar Gloss and Mylar Matte can be applied on one or both sides.
