Stand out with Spot UV.
Spot UV gloss can be applied to the surface of your business card, creating a clear and shiny layer in your own design on top of the printed artwork. This allows you to direct attention to the important aspects of your printed design, or to create subtle design elements that can only be seen reflecting in the light.
Available exclusively on a 16pt stock with either a standard Semi Gloss coating, or our premium Smooth Matte Laminate coating. The contrast between the matte finish and the high-shine spot UV creates an eye-catching addition.
You can design your cards to have the spot UV gloss applied over only the most selective areas of the card, such as your logo or business name. As a creative alternative, you can use the spot UV gloss to create a subtle pattern overlay that is visible only when caught in the light. We give you creative freedom to use as much or as little Spot UV as you like, on one or both sides, all for the same affordable price.
For a premium card with the highest impact, blind embossing can be used in combination with a spot UV design for shiny areas that are also raised from the card.

How to add Spot UV to your business card file?
You would need to supply a second file indicating what elements or objects you want the Spot UV applied to. The Spot UV file needs to be solid black and submitted as a separate file (see below). For best results please submit your Spot UV file as a Vector PDF format. This can be achieved in either Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Indesign. Please note if your business card is double sided and you want Spot UV applied to both sides you would need to supply us 4 separate files. Please review our naming convention below to simplify the ordering process.
