There are very few design restrictions specific to Silk Matte Laminate coating - it works well with most designs including solid ink coverage and full bleed. This coating can makes colours appear a bit darker or more muted – it does not add any reflective shine. You are able to write on this coating very easily with pen ink if needed.
The only design consideration that should be noted is with custom die cut shapes with fine detail. The film limits the detailing for very fine detail on a custom shape. If this is something you are concerned about prior to ordering, please submit your file through a Print Quote and speak to one of our Estimators about it.
