Spot UV

Spot UV is a flat (2D) gloss effect which is applied to a particular element or section of your design (it is never applied to the whole surface). After being applied, the UV effect is exposed to Ultra Violet light which bonds and dries the coating flat.

Spot UV is a fantastic way to add contrast, and to highlight certain elements in a design. It also looks fantastic as a patterned background. As Spot UV is a flat finish, it can bleed right to the edge of your design. We always offer Spot UV on top of a laminated surface and the effect offers the best contrast when applied in conjunction with a rich dark background in your design.
