  • 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.

      Yes it will add weight, but...
      It depends on the size of the piece and how large the area of coverage is.

        Hi Mojoprime-- They are just white boxes on top of the lines. How do you make a proper mask for a stroke?

        Well, it could be a problem, of sorts. The artwork is made from brush strokes that look quite natural and organic at the size it was drawn. Convert those to vector outlines, then blow them up and you'll...

        PrintDriver and Biggs097 gave you some good advice that assumes your client is really picky about using the exact same color. There's like a Pantone color that's reasonably close that can either be printed...
