Spot Gloss

Spot gloss damask design being printed

At On Air Design, we’re always looking for ways to improve our printing process and add capabilities to our portfolio. With our newest Durst printers comes a fresh addition: spot gloss.

This high-gloss varnish can be applied with precision to any part of the print: either across the entire wallcovering for a dramatic shine or used to highlight specific areas of the design. Spot gloss adds visual dimension and intrigue with countless options for customization.

This new capability can be applied to various substrates and designs, adding unique character and depth to wallcoverings and faux surfaces. Examples include creating subtle contrast to tone-on-tone patterns, enhancing singular motifs such as birds and foliage in traditional chinoiseries, and adding realistic luster to faux tile, wood, and marble surfaces. 

Spot gloss effortlessly transforms a wallcovering design, regardless of the substrate. This print effect creates a textural contrast on matte substrates, and when applied to a textured mylar substrate, it brings out extra depth and sparkle. This technique is currently available on rolled goods (adhesive-backed or pasteable), with availability on rigid substrates (such as linoleum, MDF, or Sintra) coming soon.

We’re excited to offer this new capability, allowing endless options to create unique and memorable interiors. To learn more about our capabilities, visit our technologies page or reach out to a team member about your custom project.
