2. Laminating:Matt and glossy

There are two different types of films, high-gloss type and matt type. High-gloss type film makes the surface of book materials not dazzling and magnificent; matt film is important for book design to be simple and elegant. The dumb film makes the color of printed advertisements darker and softer, while the bright film makes the print color more brilliant, but it is prone to chaotic reflections. The cost management of the dumb film is higher than that of the bright film. Simply put, sub-film printed matter can be seen from the perspective of all companies, while the quality of bright film printing can only be seen from the perspective of fixed assets. However, the plastic composite film, currently use is an inevitable degradation material, which is not good for environmental protection. At present, 90% of the book information is researching the technology of using the network. Generally, partial UV coating is used, and it is also done on the book reading cover with the film.
