If you have never considered Spot-UV business cards before, let'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 ultraviolet 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 Business Cards?

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 printer'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.

We gladly supply printed samples of our Spot-UV business cards, simply email our experienced staff at if interested.

The Finished Product

By adding Spot-UV coating to your business cards, you create a glossy finish. That's not all, Spot-UV also gives your designs a three-dimensional quality. Because the UV coating is slightly raised, you can see and feel the difference. People receiving your business cards will be impressed with the quality and professionalism they represent.

The Spot-UV process lets your business cards stand out, and, for this reason, it has become one of the more popular finishes for all types of custom office supplies. With the resurgence of vinyl records, Spot-UV can be found on jacket covers as well. It truly is an extremely versatile finish that can enhance the appearance of any print product from custom business cards to all manner of personalized packaging.

Customer Reviews

These came out great!
So excited to be able to order a spot varnish project online. And it was a lot more affordable than I thought.
Smooth ink coverage and the flat Spot UV is amazing!
My cards came in today and I'm so excited. The ink coverage is super smooth, especially with the rich black I used in the background along with the colors in my logo. I had a flat Spot UV coating applied on the back and it was sharp and reflective. While they call it "Gloss cover", it was more matte than what you would think. The spot UV looked great on it. Only downside? While trimming, it caused some of the black to chip off around the edges. Didn't matter though as I was gonna color the edges black with a marker anyway to make it look like black paper stock. Highly recommended!
Spot UV Business Cards
Good job! Came quicker than expected and look nice.
These turned out amazing
The spot UV just adds a very professional look to the cards and I get compliments on them all the time. Take the time when you are designing them though to come up with a use for the spot UV that makes sense rather than just throwing it on somewhere.
