High Gloss


High gloss produces maximum reflective appearance. Experience the true vibrancy of color with this finish.

Satin finish offers the slightest sheen. Not completely matte, as the finish reflects some light, but is not an overly reflective surface.


From company branding to photos to graphics, our revolutionary BlueSky™ Advanced Finishing System gives you virtually unlimited creative freedom. Have a logo or photo that you want to see on your wall? Submit it here.
