Add distinctive spot UV effects to business cards and invitations.
Spot UV involves a clear, shiny coating being applied to specific 'spot' areas of a design, to create an eye-catching contrast as well as a distinctive feel. It has the ability to make anything look and feel instantly more upmarket.
Thanks to spot UV’s unique raised finish, you can really appeal to people’s sense of touch by creating interesting patterns. By incorporating spot UV on such patterns, the results create interesting textures on the surface.
Spot UV is most commonly applied on top of matt lamination for the best results, as it provides a really nice contrast with the matt finish, however, it can also be applied on top of soft touch velvet lamination too. Clear gloss foil can be used as an alternative to spot UV on textured and coloured stocks where spot UV isn't suitable. Clear gloss foil stamping also has the added bonus of allowing for a deboss effect. We also have a clear holographic gloss foil which produces great results too.
