Inline Coating Process available at Lemon Press


The Lemon Press can service all your coatings needs: from high gloss to full matt finishes and functional barrier coatings. We work closely with the market-leading specialist in high-performance coatings used by the printing and packaging industries.

Environmentally Friendly

We offer the broadest range of coatings and are committed to providing our customers with environmentally friendly solutions. We have water-based curable coatings which do not create atmospheric pollution. Every stage of the coating process is assessed to minimise or eliminate pollution.

Inline Coating Unit

The Heidelberg XL75 has an inline coating unit that gives very impressive results every time. This feature is so good it can mimic the effects of spot UV finishes and matt lamination at a fraction of the cost.

Fragranced Varnishes

The coatings available can also be enhanced with fragrances or smells to add an extra dimension to printed matter.

Covid-19 Update

During these uncertain times, we want to reassure all our clients that production remains unaffected, and we continue to print and fulfil all current and new orders to the high-quality standards you all know and love.

Internally safeguards have been put in place at Lemon Press including following procedures and guidance supplied by the BPIF (British Printing Industries Federation).

Sales and estimating continue as normal but to minimise risks, we have reduced the teams' attendance at our premises. Therefore staff that can complete their tasks remotely are set up to work from home.
