At IPGMS we aim for a quick turnaround at a competitive price while maintaining a high standard. Let us make your print stand out with quality binding and finishing.

Metallic finish

MetalFX mixing metallic silver with a variety of process colours to give the desired effect. The process gives a metallic lustre to the printed image. Examples of this are invitations, book covers and business cards.

Embossed & Debossed

Embossing and Debossing are the processes of creating either 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 (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse side).


Foiling is the application of metallic or pigmented foil onto a solid surface by application of a heated die onto foil, making it permanently adhere to the surface below leaving the design of the die. Examples of items that are foil stamped include annual reports, pocket folders, product packaging, note cards/thank you cards, business cards, envelopes and letterheads. The foil stamp is a permanent process. Foils come in a wide selection of colours and finishes, from the most commonly used metallic gold and silver to foils with pearlescent and holographic effects.

UV Varnish

A UV Varnish is a liquid coating that is applied to the surface of a sheet which is then dried/cured under an ultra violet light. This has the effect of highlighting and drawing attention to parts of the design, but it also provides the additional visual stimulus of having varied textures on a single printed surface.

Matt or Gloss Laminate

Lamination adds a layer of protective coating either gloss or matt to the printed piece. Lamination improves the sturdiness of the piece as well as giving it a level of water resistance. Matt laminated prints are more subdued but add a elegant finish to the printed surface. If a gloss laminateis applied to the printed surface, photos and images appear to have more shine and brightness.

The possibilities are endless.
