Creativity and High Build Finishes 

Creativity and UV Varnish 

There is a huge degree of creativity and vision needed when planning to use UV varnish on a project. Too little or too much can have a detrimental impact to the finish of a project. Get it right, and the impact a good UV varnish will have on your project will be incredible. 
 
A well thought out UV varnish treatment can make text leap of a page, it can enhance aspects of an image or photograph and even create effects that in some lights provide a 3D look. 
 
This aside, subtle is what we advise – the old saying ‘Less is more’. With UV varnish treatments, choose from a choice of matt, silk and gloss UV varnish, and if you wish, why not add a hint of colour or even glitter to the varnish? Glitter that does not rub off!  
 
Your design and printed sheet will dictate which treatment is right for your project. But knowing how and when to use UV varnish on a project and to what level is key. At On Demand we provide our customers with the help and advice they need to get their project right first time, every time.

Spot UV Varnish - High Build Finishes 

 
To provide even more of an impact perhaps consider applying a high build UV varnish to certain aspects of your project. This option is perfect to emphasis key aspects of a design, such as bubbles, or key text on a plain matt background. 
This alternative takes spot UV varnish to another level - literally! 
 
High build UV varnish not only creates the illusion of an embossed finish, it also brings an additional vibrancy and dimension to your project. The application deposits a much heavier layer of varnish and therefore creates a much thicker coating, raising the spot UV area and increasing the tactile nature of the effect. Perfect for warning symbols or braille. 
 
Additional options include the ability to apply both a textured or pearlescent finish to your UV varnish design. Did you know you can even foil block your UV varnish project?
