New process creates tactile surface


Sleever International has developed a printing process that creates a tactile finish to provide an added marketing tool for consumer communication.

Skinleever is a tactile varnish that creates a 3D-effect though a printing process developed by Sleever International called Helioflex. The varnish enhances and boosts the printing volume. It is compatible with all types of films and can be applied to designs requiring up to 14 colours.

The first application for this new process is on Cricket lighters (pictured), which have been metamorphosed into a fashion statement.
