Overprint & Spot Varnish
An overprint or spot varnish is a varnish that is put on to a whole cardboard or only a portion of it. It can be gloss or dull and is used to highlight or emphasize a photo or text, can be used as a subtle design element, or can be used to protect the package against scratches, smearing and dirt. A spot varnish requires that a special plate be created for the press. Spot varnishes can be solids or screens; you can have almost as much control over a spot varnish as you would a spot color. Some spot varnishes can also be tinted to create an effect.
OPP Lamination (Cellophane)
Products that are shipped long distances, stored or used in humid environments, contain greasy products have different packaging requirements. The paper of these packages should be carefully selected and most of the time the paper or cardboard should be opp (cellophane) laminated to increase the package’s durability against liquid. Opp wrapping also enables the packages resistances against scratching. In Canpak, we could laminate matt, bright or metallic opp (cellophane) to various kinds and grades of paper and cardboard.

Window packaging is designed to offer consumers excellent visibility of the product inside. Window packs combine the strength and stability of corrugated, solid board or folding carton boxes with a visibility panel that allows the consumer to see what they are buying. As the contents are visible, window packaging maintains product integrity by eliminating the need for packs to be opened in-store. Window packaging allows products to be easily identified by the consumer and store personnel responsible for shelf replenishment. At Canpak, we could offer various window patching options for your marketing team to better visualize your product on the shelves.
Hot Foil Stamping
Foil stamping, typically a commercial print process, is the application of pigment or metallic foil, often gold or silver, but can also be various patterns or what is known as pastel foil which is a flat opaque color or white special film-backed material, to paper where a heated die is stamped onto the foil, making it adhere to the surface leaving the design of the die on the paper. Foil stamping can be combined with embossing to create a more striking 3D image.
Embossing & Debossing
Embossing and debossing are the processes of creating both raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material. Often used in combination with foil stamping, embossing alters the surface of paper stock or other substrates by providing a three-dimensional or raised effect on selected areas. In Canpak, we could produce boxes with embossing & debossing to give three dimensional experiences to your consumers.
