UV Coating is a slick, glossy coating applied
to the printed paper surface and dried on press
with ultraviolet (UV) light. The high gloss surface
of UV coating makes it eye catching, and therefore
very popular for printing the covers of paperback
novels and other print products that are meant
to gain immediate attention.
UV Coating is mainly popular among club flyers
and other promotional items. It is not suggested
to get commercial products or postcards. You cannot
write on UV coating, not even with a Sharpie
*UV1 Coating has UV coating on one side but is still printed on C2S (Coated 2-sides) therefore there will still be a slight gloss coating on the back. Most inkjet systems are able to print on C2S. If you are not sure, please contact us and we will be more than happy to send you some postcard samples to run through your inkjet system.
