MPC's Pioneering High Gloss Printing

Custom playing cards can be great for many industries such as for game designers, for promotional purposes, as gifts for any special events including weddings, exhibitions etc. But what makes your CMYK deck of cards stand out from the millions of deck designs already out there? The addition of MPC's high gloss printing with a touch and feel dimension to them will make the difference and is sure to wow anyone who sees it. The added gloss brings out any artwork into life and what's more, we have developed a secret varnish for these cards so they handle just as beautifully as they look.

High Gloss Printing vs. Traditional spot UV

Some may be confused between MPC's high gloss and traditional spot UV but they are very distinctively different. Spot UV has no touch and feel dimension to it and is not as glossy. See the photo below for comparison.

As you can see spot UV is almost flat whereas MPC's high gloss is able to achieve up to 250 microns (Braille effect) in polymer height which is 100 times higher than selective varnish. We can apply different densities ranging from 1-100% through the same pass which normal spot UV cannot achieve.
