What is a Spot UV ?
Selective varnish (also called Spot UV) allows to highlight only items wanted on a press sheet, such as a logo or design. We offer various types of varnish to enable a wide range of finished and be more original as possible. Selective UV varnish are applied screen printing process.

Is it possible to have a full UV ?
We also have a UV varnish Press for a full surface applications (possibility of releasing glue flaps) of a press sheet, the minimum size is 17½ x 23 and the maximum is 28x40.
The minimum thickness is 160m and the maximum is also 24pts. It is possible to apply a full surface varnish screen printing process, but the quality is less present since the amount of varnish applied is much greater than our press.
What points do I need to respect ?
It is very important that the "press gripper" release is 5/8 inch. Also, it is important to note that you should never cut the sheets to "side guide". We need the same "gripper" and even "side guide" that the press in order to have the same position and be more registry possible.
It is advisable not applied "primer" or "waterbase" on the sheets to ensure adhesion of the varnish, but we are aware that with the time we have nowadays, print a job without protection is playing with fire.
