Are you looking for a way to make your next printed piece stand out? Liquid metal may be just the enhancement you’re looking for. A specially formulated ink, it produces a stunning effect said to look just like old-fashioned engraving.
Liquid metal is almost 100% opaque, allowing it to cover areas of high-density ink and different color paper including black. If you’ve ever tried printing on black paper, you know it can be tricky to get the look you want. Liquid metal makes it easy! When overprinted with another ink, millions of brilliant metallic colors can be created to give both offset and coated surfaces a shimmering appearance. In addition, liquid metal is an inline application, which allows for perfect registration.
Compared to other metallic enhancements liquid metal has several advantages. It can be used in heavy coverage solids avoiding the potential for the dull gloss gassing effect that can occur with foil stamping. This enhancement also creates a more brilliant effect then when using pantone metallic silver. It doesn’t lose its luster like pantone silver when coating with UV or aqueous. And, it creates the shiny, luxurious effect of foil stamping at a significantly lower cost.
