Offset Printing: SHINE’s lustrous effect is intended to be visible through the printed image. SHINE is less absorbent than standard uncoated papers, so general process inks are not compatible with this specialty stock. Drying times will be longer than for standard papers, and this should be factored into the production schedule.
Digital Printing: New SHINE Pearl Digital 80# Text and 107# Cover is certified for use on digital presses, such as Xerox iGen digital press.
