Spot UV is also known as UV coating. If you’ve ever noticed a shiny surface applied to certain parts of books or magazines that catch the light and give them an interesting texture. it is probably a spot UV.
A UV Coating is applied over the artwork, which creates a semi-translucent area that creates an eye-catching and really slick finish for company reports or business cards. You can tailor which parts of the artwork are finished with the spot UV, allowing you to give certain areas more shine than others.
