How To: Design a Gloss Layer with a UV Printer

In this video, Michael Gass of PDS Equipment walks through the process of creating a gloss layer with a UV printer and Adobe Illustrator. To sum it up:

  • When creating a gloss layer, there needs to be two layers in the design. 
  • Once the original layer is duplicated, do an image trace on the second layer. 
  • Save the file for the gloss layer and the file for the image as two separate files.
