board/counter/box finish

Dear All,

I would like to ask if anyone knows how most boards are finished. I mean, we have a cardboard that is laminated with a paper which has the art. This paper, when is a Germany styled game, usually has a linen finish AND some type of varnish or lamination which protects the ink used and it gives some amount of bright (not very much as a bopp bright lamination). I would like to know which finish is this. Is it a varnish? Is it a lamination? What kind?

If you offset print something, even after it is dried you can take the ink out rubbing your finger against the paper. Not with this finish. The offset varnish can protect against the ink, however it still lacks the smooth felling usually used in Germany board games.

This finish is not only used in boards but also in counters, boxes and so on.

This finish is certainly known among some people who make board games. If anyone knows, please, let me know.

Thank you very much,
