The highly popular SPOT UV finish has been around for many years and it remains one of the most popular finishes.
A matt laminated 350gsm paper stock with spot UV is probably the best as it provides the biggest contrast between the matt and gloss finish.
Spot UV is a screen print process where only certain areas of the design are varnished and a UV light instantly cured/dries the varnish, hence ‘spot UV’ name.
Gloss varnish is often applied over pictures or graphics elements to enhance them.
You can also create some beautiful effects using Spot UV where the Spot UV is applied in a pattern without a graphic underneath to enable it to quietly show off the product.
This process is called “Blind” spot UV and it is normally used in very high quality product advertising.
