Spot Gloss File Tutorial – Photoshop CS3

This is a quick tutorial on how to create a spot gloss file for spot gloss printed materials. Spot gloss is usually printed with a large silkscreen printing press with a paper feeder. The paper is moved into position and the screen comes down and applies the gloss uv coating to the specified locations on the screen. This technique is not precise and is not recommended for tight registration like small type or fine images.
