Both of these coatings add a shiny reflective surface, similar to the appearance of a glossy magazine cover. Super Gloss Laminate is the more premium option, and is applied as a film, while standard Super Gloss (and Super Gloss UV for digital orders) is applied as a varnish. Super Gloss Laminate is slightly shinier, and has increased durability, offering some water resistance and slightly increasing the thickness of your card. Standard Super Gloss is offered on most offset output products and can be ordered regularly through our website. For most products you will need to submit a Print Quote request to order with Super Gloss Laminate.
