How Does Spot UV Work?
The basic principle behind spot UV is quite simple. Ultra-violet light is used to dry or cure ink in a specific area. This process works by first applying a layer of clear varnish to the desired area of your printed product. Once the varnish has been applied, the ultraviolet light will cause it to harden or cure. Once the varnish has cured, it will create a smooth, glossy surface resistant to wear and tear.
One of the benefits of using spot UV is that it allows you to add a layer of protection to your printed products. The hard varnish coating will help to protect your business cards, labels, flyers, and posters from scratches, smudges, and fading. Additionally, the smooth gloss finish created by spot UV can make your printed products look more professional and high-end.
