What is Spot UV?
Spot UV is a shiny layer that’s added to the entire card design or selected areas. After printing, a clear glossy UV coating is applied to select areas of the card. These areas can be a logo, photo or even as a blind pattern to create highlights, contrast, and dimension.
It’s a simple printing process that’s one of the most popular printing techniques available.
