Machine Sealing

At American Print and Bindery, we offer exceptional machine sealing services designed to enhance the durability and longevity of your printed materials. Machine sealing is a thin, protective covering applied during the printing process that seals the ink onto the paper, ensuring your prints remain vibrant and intact.

How Does it Work?

Machine sealing involves applying a thin layer over the printed surface to protect the ink and prevent it from rubbing away. This process is especially useful for matt and silk papers, which are less absorbent and more prone to ink smudging. While it is one of the most basic varnishes, machine sealing is crucial for preserving the quality and extending the life of your printed items.
