    Default Orange Peel - Textured Varnishes

    Customer is asking for an "Orange Peel" varnish. In my 30 yrs I have never seen any textured varnishes at all. Is there an Aqueous Coating? I know I have seen UV Coating that was textured.

    Help if you can.

    Thanx,

    Could they have seen/be referring to the clear textured coating that the Nexpress does?

    Could be. It's an experienced buyer with a large firm though. Not sure where they had seen it.

    look for large experienced screen printers specialized in varnishes, or UV-specialists,
    yes, orange peel varnish exists, but very rare
    I know here in Belgium just one printer.

    i recently came across a print that has on it a silk matte varnish, i think this is what you're looking for, it appeared to look like an orange peel... contact a varnish supplier and ask them to send you samples of a silk matte...

    We have Silk/Matte/Dull Varnishes, but they have no rippled/texture effect like an orange peel. I have only seen a screen method using UV coatings that make a textured effect before.

    What about doing a sport varnish?
