After Printing---Spot UV Process

What is Spot UV?

Spot UV is a liquid varnish for printing surfaces that produce a high gloss. Sometimes called Dot Gloss, UV dots can be placed on an image, such as a logo or title, to make it stand out against a matte or uncovered background. This is a great addition to your project and can really make your prints stand out from the crowd - matching matte and gloss makes your project luxurious.

Spot UV varnishes are applied using the same offset printing method as printed products. The clean fountain in the press was filled with a dot UV varnish and a new version with a dot gloss image was inserted. The printed claims are issued through a printing press and then, under the influence of UV light, a great effect!
