Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a spot varnish, part of Designing a Brochure (2009).
As an optional extra, we might consider adding a Spot Varnish in our print job…which is going to give an extra shininess to wherever we choose to apply and …I am going to choose to apply to photographs.…Now this is not something that we can appreciate in the proofing process. …It is a bit of a leap of faith. We are not really going to see what it looks like…until we come to do the final print on an offset press. But here is how we set it up …and it's going to go on a separate layer. Now since I intend to have this…Spot Varnish applied to the pictures, what I'm going to do is I'm going…duplicate the pictures layer by right clicking on that and I'll call it…spot varnish.…

I'm going turn my guides icon, so that I can see…my frame edges, because I have not deleted the frames. I have just deleted…the pictures from the frames.
