If you have never considered Spot-UV business cards before, letâ??s take a look at what sets them apart from other types of cards available on the market and the results you can expect.
What is Spot-UV?
Spot UV printing is a technique in which UV coating is applied to a designated part of your business card so that it pops off the paper with a glossy finish in direct contrast with the rest of the cardstock, color and texture. You could say that the Spot-UV process is like a highlighter bringing attention to a key part of your business cards.
Spot-UV is accomplished when ultra-violet cured coatings are applied over ink on paper, deepening the color of the area and drying almost immediately. With Spot-UV, the contrast between gloss and uncoated finish creates a visual as well as a tactile experience for the senses. No wonder, it is one of the more popular finishes for professionals and business owners.
When opting for Spot-UV over other finish techniques, remember to only use coated paper stock in order to guarantee the best outcome. Using uncoated papers can sometimes lead the UV coating to bleed into the paper leaving very little of it on the surface.
How to Prepare Your File for Spot-UV?
After all that time and effort you put into the design of your business cards, you want to make sure that you send it off to the printer correctly so there is no room for confusion. Preparing the file to the printerâ??s exact instructions is key to the successful outcome of your business cards.
To ensure the quality of your customized business cards, we ask that all our customers send us their file according to our instructions. First, the Spot-UV mask file should only be in 100% black and white and uploaded with your full color file. The 100% black areas are those where the Spot-UV will be applied. White will be used to indicate the areas that will not receive Spot-UV coating.
