Varnish on a letterpress

Im 99.9% sure that you can use varnish on a letterpress, my question is is there one kind that needs to be used.

There are many kinds of varnish used in printing: binding varnish (to increase tack), overprint varnish (for scuff resistance), matte varnish (for effect), etc., etc. I know of no reason why any kind of varnish is unsuitable for letterpress.

Hope this helps,

thanks I wanted to use a mate varnish and just wanted to double check that it was ok
