Using Spot UV Coating
If you want to achieve the looking of a glossy coat on a certain image on the page, but donít need or want the entire page to be coated, then you should consider spot UV coating. Printers can place UV coating on specific areas of a page, just as they do with varnish, to make a design element or photo more dramatic and eye-catching. Spot UV coating is superior to spot coating of varnish and it is also less expensive than coating the entire page. However, not all printers offer this service, so if you think you might be interested in spot UV coating, make sure to discuss it with your printer first. Also, know... the UV coating requires a special, wax free ink.
