Spot UV Business Cards Printing

A Spot UV coating or ‘varnish’ will bring your business card to life! When Spot UV varnish is applied to specific areas (or spots) on your print job, the extremely shiny and glossy texture draws attention and enhances these specific sections of your business card. Our spot uv business cards are printed on our super sturdy heavyweight artboard and when the spot uv varnish is applied on top of the velvet matt laminated business card, the results are spectacular! This finish achieves a high contrast between the extremely reflective glossy Spot UV coating and the luxurious smooth velvet matt laminate surface. A Spot UV varnish will transform your business card into a premium piece setting you apart from your competitors.

Outline or Embed Fonts

Make sure that all fonts are outlined or embedded within your file. This means that we can print your file even if we don’t have your fonts installed on our computers. This will reduce the possibilities of fonts not displaying as they should and not being printed the way you had proposed.
