A recently published study by The Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization (PRIMIR) looked at print finishing services and their perceived and implied value.

The study looked at 23 printing special effects, including glittergloss & mattescentsscratch-offglow-in-the dark, and textures printed with UV coatings and other specialty inks.

According to Hal Hinderliter who conducted the study, “Adding value to print is often touted as a way to improve the profitability of print service providers, but until now there has never been definitive research on the topic.” Hinderliter’s team surveyed 577 print service providers (PSPs), trade service providers (TSPs), print buyers, brand managers, and vendors through in-depth phone interviews.

Their findings are as follows (graphic courtesy of The Visual Media Alliance):
