How to create UV coating

Add another colour field in the layout program and assign the respective colour to the desired (possibly duplicated) design elements.

  • Swatch name: “coating"
  • Colour type: spot colour
  • Colour mode: 100 % Cyan

Please observe the following when creating design elements:

  • Line weight: min. 3 pt (1.06 mm)
  • Font size: min. 14 pt (thinnest line in the typeface: min. 1 mm)
  • Space between elements of the relief varnish: min. 3 pt (1.06 mm)
  • Distance to the final format and all punched, grooved and creased lines: min. 3 mm
  • Due to the coating, colours may appear differently.
  • All elements to be UV coated must be set to “overprint”.
