Special Effect Printing

Let’s take your brand beyond traditional printing, and into a whole new universe of creative possibilities. Mitchell Graphics is now offering special effect digital printing in Petoskey!

Specialty metallic inks, gloss varnishes, and foiling are examples of eye-catching embellishments for print pieces, but the added cost and time makes these projects a rarity. Our new technology allows you to mimic these special effects at an affordable price. Now you can combine stunning four color imagery with up to two specialty toners at a time, all while keeping the benefits of regular digital jobs; cost-effective, small quantities, variable data printing, and quick turnaround times.


Our Special Effects

Add up to two additional special effect colors at a time to your full color print pieces! These special effects can be applied both on top of and below full color imagery.

Gold and Silver metallics, which can be used on their own, or layered with CMYK (color) to deliver stunning iridescent palettes. 

Clear can be used to highlight page content and create textural effects. (Note: Do not under estimate placing clear ink on top of your white paper! Our customers have had great success creating impressive patterns and shadows with this technique.)


How it works 


Our team is dedicated to bringing your brand to life and creating exciting print pieces that make a lasting impact. When your design is getting close to the finish line, we will produce a proof on you chosen paper stock prior to a full production run. This step ensures the final results matches your intent. Our creative team will make the required adjustments from there. Get in touch with our team today to talk about using specialty toners in your next big project!
