What is Spot UV and Spot Gloss in Printing?

Spot UV and spot gloss are common terms for the print finishing technique of applying a high gloss UV coating to a selective area on a printed piece.

A common use of spot UV is to draw attention to a certain area of the printed piece, such as placing spot UV over a logo so that only the logo area is glossy. We offer spot UV as an option for our luxury business card printing and postcard printing, but it is also commonly used on packaging, flyers, brochures and other printed materials.
