How is Metallic Printing Done?
This printing process is achieved when a layer of silver foil is applied to your paper material, then is printed using CMYK ink. This results in a metallic effect in any color you can create, even metallic gradients.
What Exactly is Spot UV?
This finish is created using clear high gloss coating that is treated with UV to harden it. The shiny effect of this finish adds more visual interest and a tactile experience when you hold it.
Leave a 1/16” gap between your metallic print and spot UV accents. These two cannot overlap.
