Spot UV Business Cards

Spot UV (gloss) business cards are a great way to impress future customers and build overall company image. Spot gloss adds a very distinguished flare that takes ordinary business cards to the next level of professionalism. It is best used to highlight important areas of the business card design. In general, spot gloss is one of the greatest custom upgrades that can accompany full color silk business card printing.

The Spot Gloss UV Highlight Process

Once the card stock has been cut by a die-cut laser machine, the custom business card design is printed in full 4/4 color inks. The silk (satin) laminate coating is then applied to both sides of the card stock. When this process is complete, the spot UV gloss highlights are applied. Other upgrades are done at this time as well, such as decorative foil color stamping. The result is a highly individualized unique business card design.

Effects of Custom Spot Gloss

Spot gloss highlighting not only enhances the look of the business card, it also improves the three-dimensional feel. The UV coating is slightly raised, so it can be physically felt and seen when held at an angle to the light. When added to a full color printed silk business card, spot UV adds a very dramatic effect and makes the piece stand out from the boring business card genre.
