    What is partial coating (Spot UV)?

    Spot UV allows you to put Highgloss UV Coating on some parts of the cards while leaving other parts uncoated. For instance, you are able to apply glossy coating to a company logo, part of a picture or text and leave the rest of the card in a matte finish. This gives your card a special high quality outfit. Partial coating makes sense for:
    1. Text with an adequate font size or Logos with a diameter over 1cm.
    2. Partial Coating on a dark background.

    Partial coating needs to be defined for each side of a card, in form of an image file that only contains black and white. The black pixels correspond to coated regions. The Spot UV files have to be created according to our file specs (see File Help).
