  • Varnish weight

    Please forgive this newbe question: Does adding a heavy varnish add any weight to a printing job? How much? I can't add more than 0.3 ounces to this job.

    that's pretty tight. you're probably going to want to mock one up on the right paper (or pay your printer to do it), and see if there's any way they can give you an idea of whether or not it will add that much to it. i'm assuming it'll have to do with how heavy it's put on, but i can't imagine it adding too much weight to it.

    YMMV, though. talk to your printer.
    Remember: Wherever you go, there you are.

        Just a slightly off-topic observation, but the artwork in question is a great example of how complicated, hard-to-produce effects don't necessarily add up to good design.

        I've seen some people put together some pretty decent graphs/charts, etc. through Power BI ... maybe, MAYBE, that would work.

        Blogs and YouTube tutorials can only get you so far. Most of them just teach you how to make one really specific design.

        I agree with PD that these tutorials can result in bad habits like...
