    We have a cheap meter that we use about 2 X per month.
    ETB-0686. Our meter reads the same as the coating rep's high dollar meter, no idea how long it would last if you used it everyday. We have had it for about 3 years. No complaints. We have compared it to the coating rep's meter a few times. It comes with a calibration plaque and is user friendly.

      If you use a single angle geometry gloss meter, then geometry angle should be selected for the gloss level.
      Are you measuring matte, normal, or glossy material?

          60' is general purpose.
          20' is for glossy
          85' is for matte
          ISO 8254 has 3 parts 1,2,3.
          TAPPI uses 75' for paper

          Print Embellishment Goes
          Straight To The Bottom Line

          InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
