What Is UV Coating?

UV coating is a compound made up almost entirely of solids, which produces a glossy finish when applied to paper. You can choose from varying levels of glossiness or shine, and can also opt to have only part of the paper coated (known as spot-coating).

Because the coating is cured by UV light, it dries almost instantly, making it easy to move into binding, folding, or whatever finishing your materials need.

Benefits of UV Coating on Printed Materials

Today’s UV coatings are made from advanced compounds that aren’t toxic to print shop staff. And there are many other benefits to using this practical finish:

  • UV coating boosts the color of your printed materials, giving them an upscale look without the high price.
  • The glossy finish that the coating provides can be added in any degree you choose, from a sophisticated matte to a bright shine. You can also do spot-coating, adding gloss to only a few elements on the page, to create an enhanced design.
  • UV coating dries almost instantly without the use of heat, which saves energy.
  • The coating resists smudges, marks, and scratches.
  • Coated paper stock can be recycled with mixed waste products.
  • UV coating produces premium-look materials that last longer, giving you a high ROI.

What Can Be UV Coated?

A wide array of materials and items can be coated, including:

  • Business cards
  • Brochures
  • Pricing lists
  • Postcards
  • Banners
  • Signage
  • Posters
  • Photos
  • Presentation folders
  • Direct mail marketing
  • Holiday cards
  • Calendars
  • School presentation materials

In general, papers of a higher weight are best-suited to UV finishing.

Is UV Coated Printing Expensive?

Though the price will vary depending on what you’re having coated and the size of the job, UV coating is highly cost-effective. It’s a great way to get sharp-looking printed materials for a reasonable price.
