So what is StarMarque?
We all know that adding gloss lamination to an image increases the intensity of colours. StarMarque is a special process which only adds a gloss coating to selected parts of the image or document.
We start with a matt laminated item such as a business card, folder or leaflet. The matt base provides a great contrast for the next layer – a special hi-gloss varnish. This varnish is only applied to the areas you want, hence the commonly used name “spot varnish”.
The end result is a beautiful flyer or card with both gloss and matt areas. This has the effect of accentuating and drawing attention to the glossy part of the design. Ask your local printing.com store for colour charts to compare the difference.
Shaped StarMarque Rack Cards from $292
For the ultimate showpiece, upgrade to an impressive Shaped StarMarque Rack Card. Create intriguing shapes, use creases to fold or perforations as 'tear off' areas. Ask your local printing.com for free samples of StarMarque items, or for ideas on how they could help make your marketing more effective.
How can I use StarMarque?
Lots of businesses are finding that adding StarMarque to their marketing material is giving it a lot more weight and presence. The gloss highlights provide an additional visual stimulus because of the varied textures on the single printed surface. This adds depth and impact and sets the perception of high quality in the eyes of the recipient.
If you’re selling a premium product or are trying to position your business at the upper end of your market, create a striking first impression with StarMarque Business Cards, Presentation Folders and Rack Cards.
What works best?
StarMarque looks great added over the top of dark colours – black, dark blue, purple, that kind of thing – that’s where the contrast is greatest. On a light background, the highlights will be less visible and they’ll be practically invisible on white – although that’s sometimes useful if you want to use it as a difficult-to-copy security feature.
