Finishing

finishingFinishing services are the special touches added to your printed piece to make it stand out. This includes foil stamping, embossing, die cutting and high gloss UV coating.

Gandy Printers is proud to be the only printing company in the Tallahassee area to perform all of these operations in-house. Many of our local competitors outsource to third-party providers.

Die cutting is used to create a variety of cut-outs ranging from common to custom shapes. It is used to create windows in pages as well as decorative paper edges. Die cutting is also used in the production of products such as door hangers and pocket folders.

Embossing creates a relief, causing the image to rise off of the page. It can be used in conjunction with a printed image to create a 3-dimensional effect. It can also be used alone, known as blind embossing, to create a subtle image.

Foil stamping is a great way to highlight an element of your design. The most popular requests are for gold or silver foil, but we offer a variety of other colors and patterns ranging from flat to metallic color. Clear foils are also available.

UV coating creates a high gloss finish by coating the piece in a liquid polymer. This gives your final piece a “wet” look, emphasizing full color images.
