This is the next level of style and extravagance both visual and tactile. The raised effect expresses itself in a myriad of ways depending on lighting. These reflections create your story and captivate the interest of your client. Technically, raised UV varnish is not really a ‘printing’ technique, rather a coating that is applied after the printing process.
Raised spot gloss UV printing uses light to cure the varnish that is applied to cards. It is normally applied to colour printed paper and cards to seal in colour, add shine and protect the printed surface from moisture and damage. Raised spot UV varnish can be applied over the whole page or just to certain areas referred to as ‘raised spot gloss’. When used strategically over targeted areas, it will attract attention and make your product pop out from the crowd.
Another way is to use ‘blind’ raised spot gloss UV varnish. Normally printing a gloss over a printed area to highlight a product looks good but you can place it over a plain background, usually dark so the spot gloss UV varnish contrasts as a clear image, highlighting itself. Looks wonderful and you can’t keep from touching it! It is sure to get attention.
