I recently designed a print project for a client that required a "spot gloss". This is the first time I've done this and I am very disappointed with the results. You can not tell AT ALL that there is a "spot gloss" present. The printer has assured me that there is and his explanation is that it was done "inline" and that there is "heavy ink coverage" so I may not of gotten the results I was expecting. I do believe the printer (although his explanation means nothing to me) but I am really shocked by the less than spectacular results.
Any ideas as to why it turned out the way it did?
Paper: 100lb. Not matte but not glossy.
PS. I want to emphasize "at all". Even holding it up to the light at every angle you can not tell there is a gloss applied.
