Published time: 2013-05-30 11:31

Printed media is all about presentation. Whether it’s flyers, posters, or booklets, UV gloss coating is the ultimate add-on that will really make your product shine.

UV coating is a super gloss finish to any print

UV coating is a super gloss coating that is applied to a printed sheet of paper. This coating gives any coated sheet of paper a much glossier finish. It is called “UV” coating because the coating is hardened by a bright ultraviolet light.

UV gloss coating makes colors pop out

UV coating increases the contrast of your prints and makes colors stand out and pop. In the example below are two posters. They were both printed in the same run on 100 lb. gloss cover paper. The first one had no UV coating applied to it, whereas the second one did have UV coating applied. It is very easy to see that the one with UV coating has much more vibrant colors and overall looks more appealing.
