Varnish & Aqueous Coating: As with all papers, varnishing or aqueous coating SAVOY after printing can help to protect the printed area.
Foil Stamping: SAVOY foil stamps beautifully. As with most processes, we strongly recommend pre-testing as there are many variables (types of foils, complexity of the design, pressure, environment, etc…)
Scoring & Folding: SAVOY 80# Text, 92# cover, and 118# cover will score and fold beautifully. These SAVOY weights (80# text, 92# cover, 118# cover) should be scored prior to folding, to ensure the best possible fold. As for all papers, folding with the grain direction is preferred. We recommend a rounded channel score with a minimum width of 2.5 times the caliper of the sheet. SAVOY 80# text, 92# cover and 118# cover are single-ply papers (not pasted) making SAVOY cover weights ideal for converting and packaging applications. SAVOY Double Thick 236# cover is a pasted paper (2 x 118# covers pasted together) and therefore will not score and fold like our single-thick papers..
Binding: Binding should always run parallel to the grain direction.
