Hello
Can somebody indicate me a company that can print 16x24 or bigger and put some kind of thin plastic coating on it.
A client wants me to print 16x24 or 20x24 but she wants the print similar to another one she already has.
that picture has some kind of coating that looks plastic so no finger prints are marked(can be cleaned) is light-scratch resistant and water resistant too... and it has a thin foam or plastic behind the actual picture
thanks

The procedure is called varnishing.
Here is the first I found

Thanks lui
This looks more like a thin (very) coat
I am looking for something more hard I have seen them and they look like a tough thin plastic that makes the picture rigid

You could try these people, http://www.whitewall.c​om/products (external link) although they are based in Germany they seem to ship world wide. I'm currently looking at trying them out myself.

Well, what more do you need to know? You have the "varnishing" approach, which is the "softer" coating, then you have "laminating" which is a tougher plastic coating. Are you asking for more info?

But there is luster coating water based which is(they say ...) harder than varnish but not as plstic feeling as laminating
I just want to know you ideas or opinions onthis so I can choose better
does it look beautiful? tacky,? awful ?
Does the pic loose contrast/ that kind of things is what i need to know
thanks
