Dig deep into the article to better understand about the Spot UV printing:

What is SPOT UV?

It is a method where UV coating is done on the business card or any other printing material. A thick and transparent coating dried using UV light is applied on the particular areas which need to be highlighted for the people to immediately look at. Nice and beautiful contrast is given to the whole design with the help of glossy coating that leaves an everlasting and eye-striking impact.

Working of SPOT UV

The paper or sheet is inserted in the machines to get the UV coating where the rollers coat the whole sheet. Then the sheet is put under the UV lamps and Infra red to immediately dry the coated sheet. Next, the UV varnish to create the spot process is spread across the template which is usually a thin film over the sheet that beautifully creates the required effect whilst only keeping the required elements of the design to be coated. Lastly when the varnish gets dried, it delivers a harder coating than the traditional coated papers or sheets.

An Example of UV Coating Application

Image accentuation is a cool way to get a complete grasp of how spot UV works. In this, you coat a particular area of the image in order to make something pop. Usually, the logo or a stamp or some important information is coated with spot UV to attract the viewers towards that particular area. For example, you own a pizza store and want to send out the brochures displaying the best pizza meal – here you can use spot UV coating over the luscious PIZZA MEAL image. 

Is it worth it?
