Spot Varnish

A varnish applied only to portions of a printed piece after printing, rather than to the entire sheet, typically for aesthetic purposes. Spot varnishing is commonly found on book covers, in which only portions of the cover are high in gloss, in contrast to the surrounding matte texture.
