  • 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.

        Thank you, seamas. I submitted my labels last night. The final toned labeled were improved somewhat before submission - namely, the brewery logo included and drop shadows for the illustrations (link below)....

        Texture overlay. I did something similar recently using an image of textured paper, put it on the top layer, and played with the opacity/blending settings until it looked good. If you want to get more...
