What is Spot UV Printing?

Those seeking to enhance their business card designs with a distinctive look can choose from a broad range of specialty printing techniques. Due to its versatility, impact, and affordability, Full-Color Spot UV business cards are one of the more popular cards along with our postcards.

You may be surprised to learn that Spot UV (also referred to as Spot Gloss or Spot Varnish) printing isn’t actually a printing technique at all, but rather a method for coating printed products. While it may sound futuristic, it is a relatively simple process. The “UV” portion involves using UV light for curing a varnish placed on the printed material.

Although printers can utilize this method on white paper or card stock, it is most effective on color-printed products to enhance product shine, protect its color, and keep moisture and damage out in order to preserve the product.

Due to its lack of volatility, it’s known for being environmentally friendly. This means that little or no varnish becomes a gas that can escape into the open air.

Benefits of Spot UV Printing:

  • Ultimate Shine
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Resist Smudging
  • High Clarity
