Now you have two options for Spot UV Gloss: 3D-UV and Flat UV.
Spot the Difference
Port Printing now has a couple of options when it comes to adding Spot UV Gloss to your printing. We’ve all been a long-time fan of 3D-UV, and now we’re excited to offer Flat UV as a flexible option. So what’s the difference, and why would you choose one over the other? Let’s review the differences.
3D-UV is a raised Spot UV Gloss, which you can see and feel. This finish is spectacular as highlights on logos and type, and tactile patterns across your matte laminated printing. 3D-UV is printed digitally, which means no expensive block is required, and you can even print Variable Data in 3D-UV on each item. A disadvantage of 3D-UV is that it needs a margin from trimming and scoring.
Flat UV has the same high-gloss shine, but does not have a raised profile like 3D-UV. This flat gloss finish is also flexible for trimming, scoring and folding. The best part of Flat UV is the price, which comes in under the price of 3D-UV.
Artwork requirements for Flat UV are the same to 3D-UV. Read our Artwork Guidelines here.
