    Abstract

    The influence of special effects on the perception and mental impressions associated with printed products was investigated in a psychometric study. A set of 60 print samples containing different types of printed special effects, such as varnishing and metallic effects, was subjectively assessed by 177 observers. The number of print samples and observers was increased from an earlier study, allowing more general conclusions to be drawn from the results. The shifts produced by the use of special effects along perceptual dimensions termed Noteworthiness and Aesthetic Value were examined. These dimensions were found in the previous study to efficiently capture a considerable part of the influence of printed special effects on the subjective experience of printed products. The positions of the special effect print samples were compared on the psychometric scales of Noteworthiness and Aesthetic Value to the positions of the reference samples that had the same content but no special effects beyond conventional CMYK printing. A strong trend of increased Noteworthiness and Aesthetic Value in the special effect print samples, compared to the reference samples, was found.
