What Is UV Gloss Treatment?

The technique is not very complex but it does involve the coating on printed materials. The process uses UV light to cure a special type of varnish that your printer adds to the printed material, which can be anything from traditional paper to cardstock. The varnish can be applied to any coloring, including white but it is often applied to color printed paper products. By applying this product, it works to seal I the color. It also adds a bit of shine to the product, allowing it to stand out or glimmer a bit in the light. And, the process also protects the printed surface underneath the application from damage including moisture, allowing the product to last longer.

Why Use It?

There are various reasons to use spot UV gloss treatment on your marketing materials or really any other material you need to keep in good condition for the long term. This method offers a number of benefits such as:

  • Improving the overall look of the piece, creating a higher value image to the person holding it.
  • It adds durability to the printed material allowing them to last longer even with ongoing wear and tear.
  • Add some perceived added value to the piece. When your user is holding it, it seems to be heavier and more valuable overall, therefore encouraging users to maintain the item longer.
