Spot Gloss UV

Spot Gloss

UV Spot Gloss is one of the most popular print finishes available, providing an added element of elegance and visual effect to your creative plastic card! The standard finish for plastic cards is a highly reflective, smooth gloss surface, so we recommend using a matt finish if you intend to incorporate a Spot Gloss. It can also be applied to a gloss card surface as a subtle way to enhance selected graphics. 

Spot Gloss works most effectively on larger shapes or bold text, it can also work beautifully as a subtle background texture when applied to a pattern. It is advised not to use spot gloss on fine detail or type where it is to be aligned with printed elements, as the varnish can spread marginally causing an undesirable effect.

UV Spot Gloss can be applied as a High Build (or Raised Ink) which also provides a tactile variation. Contact us for any further information about incorporating a spot gloss into your design.
