Guide to Spot UV


What is Spot UV?
It is an area of Ultra Violet gloss coating that creates a glossy finish to the targeted areas on top of your printed job as illustrated above.

Supplying Your Files
When supplying files for print you must also supply artwork for the spot UV itself. The spot UV artwork should consist of solid black shapes - 100% K (black) only and in the exact position on the page where the spot UV is required, ideally in vector as opposed to bitmap formula. The Spot UV must be on a separate page and have the same dimensions and crop marks in the same position as the printed file.

Spot UV works well on larger areas and as a pattern on a flat background.

It is not recommended that small text or thin lines are spot UV'd.
