Digital Foiling

We use the most up-to-date methods which reduce production time. Foiling used to be an expensive technique, but changes in technology have brought it within reach of smaller businesses, one-offs and low quantities of print are easily undertaken. We can even add personalisation at a little extra cost.
Foiling is available in a range of colours in addition to gold and silver. The technique produces a higher quality visual on both print and promotional items.


Kenads can achieve excellent effects with embossing, which is raising the image or text. Embossing is used in many different ways with various dies and, at different levels. Debossing is the opposite of embossing and produces an indented look which can be effectively used on thicker materials and, on book covers. These techniques are impressive from both a visual and a touch perspective.


If you wanted to make, a brochure or report look prestigious and, improve its longevity, ask about our range of varnishes. In addition to applying these to covers, they can also be used inside a brochure. A shiny gloss varnish will improve the look of a photograph or graphic feature. A matt varnish provides a smooth finish which doesn’t reflect the light and a silk varnish is somewhere between the two.

Spot UV

If you have a particular item on the page, such as a logo, that you want to stand out, spot UV can add vibrancy to just that item which then becomes a compelling visual element on the page. This method is particularly effective following the use of matt lamination and then adding a spot UV.
