The JETVARNISH 3D One is the most cost-effective point of entry into MGI’s complete series of sheet-fed, digital embellishment presses. The compact footprint allows printers, finishers, and converters to have an in-house full production and prototyping print embellishment system without the need for screens, dies or plates. The all-purpose, patented varnish formula allows both flat 2D Spot UV highlighting and sculptured 3D raised special effects on a wide range of substrate stocks and media including paper, synthetics and plastics.

The JETVARNISH 3D One creates opportunities for enhancing brand identity, more powerful printed communications and highly profitable digital special effects on all printing applications, such as booklets, brochures, business cards, mailpieces, book and magazine covers, sheet-fed labels, small folding cartons and more.
