Our Digital Embellishments at a Glance:

Ultra Sense

From 50 to 100+ microns of height, this digital enhancement process uses a clear layer on top of your prints to highlight or mimic the texture of your printed image. Use this technique with Ultra Sense Plus or Ultra Pro for even more dimensional effect.

The benefits:
  • Adds tactile element
  • High-quality gloss effect
  • Digital process
  • Can be used with variable data
  • Produced in-house

Ultra Spot

Want a spot gloss look without all the height? Ultra Spot applications simulate the traditional look of a UV spot with the flexibility of a digital process.

The benefits:
  • Digitally recreates the flat varnish look and feel
  • No time-consuming or costly setup
  • Increases digital gamut by enhancing printed colors

Ultra Foil

Ditch the metal die and apply foil digitally. Changed your mind on the design? No problem. Ultra Foil is the perfect method for producing comps, short-run projects, and even personalized variable foil applications.

The benefits:
  • No plates or make-ready needed
  • Digital process
  • Allows for variable applications

How It Works

On either a printed on non printed sheet, our digital embellishments are added by applying a polymer-based clear coating to the areas that are being enhanced. This base can be used alone to create a spot, raised or textured effect or with our foil application to add an additional touch of elegance to your prints.  For best practices when using our digital embellishments, download our Technical Guide for more information.
