UV-varnish coating adds extra aesthetic sheen to a printed product. The effect is achieved with the help of special varnish and the product gains additional visual attractiveness as a result. UV-varnishing increases the strength and durability of the printed product and makes it more attractive.
UV-varnish can be either glossy or matte, both of them have their advantages but both coatings are similar to lamination in respect to protection of printed products from staining and moisture. The varnish can cover the whole surface of a printed product or it can be applied only to specific elements (logo, picture, company’s name) to give accent to them. This is UV spot varnish.
