Spot UV is not a printing method or technique but a finishing process. It is a separate stage in the production process and is done after the completion of printing and laminating.
Spot UV uses ultraviolet light to cure varnish that is applied to inked images to seal in their color. This technique adds shine to the finish and gives the product added protection against damage.
Varnish is applied to selected areas of a card or folder via a screen printing process. When Spot UV is applied to these varnished areas it imparts a glossy and textured look. It is especially effective in enhancing pictures and graphics.
The Spot UV effect is very noticeable when applied to a solid black background to create a shape, pattern or text. This effect is not readily apparent when applied to text unless the card is moved in the light. Accordingly, we do not recommend the application of this technique to small text or fine lines.
Our Spot UV prices start at only $25, with no set-up fees!
Luxury Cards includes the cost of set-up in our charge for Spot UV finishing. It is not always possible to perfectly align the Spot UV with the print and a shift of 1/64 inch may be the result. However, this shift will only be evident on the first few cards before being corrected.
