What is Cello glazing?
Cello glazing is a common finishing option in printing, Commonly used on business cards, presentation folders and booklet covers, it offers a high quality finish to your printed jobs.
Available in both gloss, matt and velvet feel (deluxe matt) options, cello glazing offers a professional look and feel to the finished product by adhering a thin sheet of film using heat and pressure. It offers added protection and durability to your print job that is very difficult to remove. Often referred to as “cello” there are benefits to both the matt and gloss options.
Matt cello is non-reflective and while it offers a silky, smooth finish, it can flatten out the colours in your printed piece. If you are looking to be able to write on your business card or print project, then we recommend using the matt cello as gloss is difficult to write on.
Gloss cello offers a clear and shiny finish that tends to brighten and enhance your colours.
Both options offer protection, strength and rigidness to your print project allowing it to be more durable. It’s a great option if your printed piece will be handled frequently or may encounter moisture.
