Spot UV Gloss Printing brings a polished edge to your Business Cards, Stationery & Product Packaging
Matte looks have gone the way of brown eyeliner; that is: better off totally on its own as a finite statement, or–as we prefer it at Publicide–best when balanced with reflective liquid highlights. For the measured power of powder-fresh/wet-and-wild unions, Spot UV Gloss Printing is the supreme choice in our Specialty Printing department.
Quite perfect for matte tone-on-tone printing (such as your run of custom Black Business Cards or Monochrome Pale Pink Printing) the Glossy Printing process breaks up the print with added glowing, eye-snatching dimension. Unforgettable high-shine details applied to your logo or name will draw your contacts & clients in deeper, allowing more time for them to be dazzled & ensnared. In a business marketplace that’s increasingly cutthroat as it is sophisticated, the only thing worth more than attention is more of it. Forget aforementioned balance all together and commit to slippery-sweet spotlight-soaked statement stationery. You need business cards that will, on some unconscious level, remind the beholder of any number of Beyonce performances where she was Sunday Riley glamour-greased, shimmer-shiny stomping & shaking in some body of water onstage. Bey wouldn’t want you to hold out: opt for Chromolux Hi-Gloss paper & cardstocks with thermographic text and a final coat of UV Gloss to create a print that’s more slick than a vaseline lens on the Rupaul’s Drag Race backlot.
So. Think of Spot UV Gloss elements as the lipgloss you cannot leave home without: a trusty bit of luster that pulls your whole face (or print) together with stunning satisfaction.
While Spot UV Gloss Printing might sound more Blade Runner-ready than, say, office-ready, it remains a relatively rapid-process with reliable results. Once the essential contact information and/or designs are typeset & printed to your business card or stationery, Glossy details can be achieved with the use of a specialized printer that shoots a clear, light-reactive fluid to selected areas of a print. From there the prints are rolled through a UV light bath, which develops the coating into a fixed-and-fabulous shellac. If this process reminds you of circa 2007 tanning bed experiences, you would not be wrong. The final results, however, are less problematic and assuredly guilt-free. There are no streaks, burns, or toxic fumes emitted from Spot Gloss treatments. Only MTV VMA-worthy glassy-glam.
Far more than excess decoration, Spot UV Gloss coating supplies a protective shield to your commercial printing. Product Packaging, Postcards and Brochures will endure more wear and look better doing so with the added power of UV varnishes. If the ultra-lustrous, crystal-clear-and-thrice-as-tough nail polish top-coat look isn’t your taste, any number of finishes in subdued semi-gloss, sea-breeze pearl coat, or misty morning-dew are available at our Manhattan Print Shop. Clear Foil Stamps, and Extra Thick laminates are available for achieving a near identical, double durable, and cost-efficient effect.
Whether you wish to add a little sparkle or commit to a fully lacquered look, Spot UV Gloss Printing will seal the pigments, deepen the color & flash brighter than Times Square at midnight. Shiny logo business cards, ultra-luxurious Look Books, RSVP-catching Event Invitations, and reflective HangTags are all print-perfect specialties at our Midtown Manhattan Print Shop.
