How to Set Up Spot UV Artwork

To keep things simple, we’d like two separate PDFs from you for each printed page; one for your general artwork and another for your spot UV design elements. Doing this means that our studio team know exactly what you do and don’t want in spot UV.

Setting Up Your Artwork Example attached

1: Create your design as normal and save it as your general artwork PDF.
2: Duplicate your design and delete any elements you do NOT want spot UV on.
3: Recolour the remaining elements with a solid fill colour – use the same colour for everything you want spot UV applied to.
4: Create any additional spot UV elements that don’t depend on the design beneath (use the same fill colour from before).
5: Make sure to include “_SpotUV” at the end of the file name when you save.
