What is Spot UV or Spot Gloss?

Spot UV, sometimes also called spot gloss, is an optional process where a selective area of your printed piece will be covered in a high gloss coating. For instance you might cover your logo in spot UV, and then only the logo would be glossy with the rest of the business card or postcard having one of our luxury matte finishes - either silk or suede. Spot UV is an available option on all of our business cards and postcards. To learn in greater detail about what spot gloss is and how it can be used in your designs, take a look at our full guide on What is Spot UV?
