  • One of my favorite products from 4over4

    I have yet to see raised spot uv anywhere else on a printing website. The velvet laminated aspect adds an elegant smooth feel to the business cars. Then the raised spot uv adds dimension that compliments the smoothness of the velvet laminated part very well. I am simple in love with these!

    The scuff resistant aspect of the velvet laminated part is great because customers cannot seem to stop running their fingers over the spot uv. These cards are not easily damaged, which is definitely unique.

Raised Spot UV Business Cards: Elevate Your Image

The tools we use say a lot about us. From the design to the font to the finish, a dynamic business card should impress prospective clients and move them to action. If you want to get notice, and who doesn't, our custom raised spot UV business cards are a move in the right direction! What's so great about raised spot UV cards? These sophisticated cards showcase smooth, glossy raised areas that beautifully contrast with the soft touch, suede feel of the paper stock. Simply put - they make heads turn!

Whether you own your own business, want to spread the word, reach a large amount of people, or simply want to create a look of professionalism these cards are perfect! With endless design opportunities and freedom these cards are both versatile and individualized for you.

A Visual and Tactile Journey

Raised up to 50 microns, clients can literally feel the texture when running their fingers over these unique cards. The smooth edges and glossy finish feel great on any fingertips. Exude luxury by applying raised spot UV to not just one, but both sides of the card. Whether the focus is a logo or text, the idea is to engage recipients in a way that incorporates our most powerful senses, touch and sight.

Do you know what the difference is between raised ink business cards and spot UV business cards? It's simple, both involve adding a special varnish to the card. But, unlike traditional spot UV, raised ink is slightly elevated. To sum it up, it's, well, raised. This extra raise places emphasis on a tactile approach to visuals, incorporating more than just a viewer's ability to see the information. To achieve this, we use a process called "thermography". That's a technical term for "amazing".

Our luxurious velvet laminated paper stock and raised spot UV effect are a match made in heaven.
