Spot UV lacquer is a glossy varnish layer which is applicable on matt cards. Spot UV inplies partial coverage and gives a glossy embossed effect. When you want a name or logo to stand out, this technique is perfect.
Very often, silkscreening is used to apply spot UV lacquer, but because we try to do it differently and better, we have invested in inkjet technology.
The advantages of inkjet technology:
- A perfect registration because the image is measured and accordingly we spray ink on the right place
- Very flexible in ink layer thicknesses between 15 and 250 micron
- As a result of using a polymer, we can assure a high scratch resistance and gloss, which are otherwise impossible.
