Spot Gloss is a surfacing option you can apply to some of our folding game boards, large stout box (top and sides printed) and large stout box (full box printed), and provides a really professional and interesting dimension to the board or box. It allows you to make some parts of the board or box glossy, while the other parts remain matte. To use this feature, you'll go into the game editor and edit either a quad-fold, six-fold or medium six-fold game board, or the large stout box (top and sides printed) or large stout box (full box printed).
*Note: Spot gloss is not the same as our UV coating. Adding a UV coating to your game will not add the UV coating to boards that have the option of spot gloss. If you do not add a gloss option when creating your board, it will have a matte finish. Spot gloss is not compatible with dry erase markers.
Once there you will choose "Spot Gloss" as the surface treatment. This will enable you to upload a second image to overlay over your main image.
The second image must be 100% black where you want the gloss to appear and white where you want the print to remain matte.
****Please note that none of these surfacing options are compatible with dry-erase markers.
