If you are using a spot varnish or spot UV coating on your printed piece, it is best to create a specific layer and spot color named “varnish” or “UV”.

  • First, create your swatch in the New Color Swatch panel (see figure on right)
  • Then, select the image(s) or text block(s) upon which you wish to apply the varnish or coating.
  • Add a new layer, duplicate the elements (Ctrl/Cmd+J) and apply the spot color to the elements on that new layer.
  • Set new object to Overprint Fill under Attributes panel.
  • Turn on Overprint Preview (under View menu) to preview.
