Spot Varnish Labels
Make your products shine and stand out with our spot UV labels. Spot UV is also commonly referred to as Spot Varnish or Spot Gloss.
Spot UV is the ideal way to create a striking print finish for your labels, creating interest and intrigue. The spot UV effect can be used to give a thick, high-gloss varnish to certain areas of the print. This not only adds to the overall visual appeal of the print but can also be a perfect way to highlight key areas of your print, for example, a logo or some text.
Show off your products with the eye-catching richness of a spot UV label. A decorative label with a spot UV finish is a powerful tool to make your product stand out on the shelf. The spot UV varnish uses a matt and gloss contrast to create a simple yet sophisticated finished product.

Spot UV Process
Design the label: Start by creating the label design using software like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. Be sure to create a separate layer for the areas where you want to apply the spot UV coating.
Print the label: Print the label design onto label stock using a digital or flexographic printing process.
Apply the spot UV coating: After printing, the labels move to a separate machine where the spot UV coating is applied. This machine uses a special printing technique that allows the coating to be applied only to the areas designated in the design layer.
Cure the UV coating: The labels then move to a curing station where the UV coating is dried and cured using UV light.
Inspect the labels: After curing, the labels are inspected for quality control to ensure that the spot UV coating has been applied correctly and evenly.
Finish and package the labels: Finally, the labels are finished with any necessary cutting or finishing processes, and then packaged and shipped to the customer.
What uses do these labels have?
Spot UV labels help to draw attention to specific areas of a product label, for example, your brand name or logo, or your product name. The spot UV effect gives your product a prestigious and upmarket feel. It is the perfect economical option to add a luxury finish. It is particularly recommended for wine labels or bottle-based, products.
A Spot UV label can be used to create an interesting contrast on your label products. This will help to make certain areas stand out to your consumers. For example, if you need a part of your label design to pop where ingredients and allergens are mentioned. We would be able to Spot UV this part only to ensure this information is clear.
