Soft Touch Coating

At American Print & Bindery, we combine the elegance of sophisticated design with the practical benefits of modern technology. Our soft coating options transform printed materials by enhancing both their aesthetic appeal and functional durability. We take pride in offering a variety of soft coatings that can elevate the look and feel of your books, journals, and special editions.

How Does it Work?

Soft coating involves a meticulous process where a special finish is applied to print products during the final stages of production. This finish gives printed materials a velvety, matte texture that is not only beautiful to look at but pleasant to touch.

Soft coating is particularly impactful for items like hardcover books, adding a layer of sophistication and protection.

What are the Benefits?

  • Luxurious Texture: The soft coating provides a tactile experience that makes your print products feel luxurious. This subtle velvety texture invites engagement and holds the attention of users, making your products more memorable.

  • Enhanced Visual Appeal: Soft coatings enhance visual appeal by adding a rich, matte finish that reduces glare and makes colors appear more vibrant and text more readable, regardless of the lighting conditions.

  • Increased Durability: Our soft coatings add a layer of protection to your printed materials, helping them resist scuffs, scratches, and smudges. This makes your products not only more durable but also maintains their quality over time.

  • Customization Options: At American Print & Bindery, we understand that each project is unique. That’s why we offer customizable soft coating solutions to match your specific requirements, whether you’re looking for a particular thickness, texture, or application method.

  • Eco-Friendly: We use environmentally friendly, water-based soft touch coatings that ensure your project is not only aesthetically pleasing but also responsible.

When is it Ideal?

  • High-End Publications: Soft coatings are perfect for enhancing the quality of high-end publications like luxury journals and collector's edition books.

  • Business and Marketing Materials: Make a lasting impression with business cards, brochures, and promotional materials that stand out due to their sophisticated finish.

  • Custom Projects: Whether it’s a bespoke gift, a limited edition print, or corporate materials, soft coating adds a touch of class that can significantly enhance the perceived value of the product.

  • Educational Tools: For educational or professional books, a soft coating can make handling more pleasant and reduce strain with its anti-glare properties.
