If you have never explored Spot-UV business cards before, let’s examine what distinguishes them from other cards and the outcomes you may anticipate.
What is Spot-UV?
Spot UV printing is a method in which UV coating is given to a specific area of a business card to stand out with a glossy finish in stark contrast to the rest of the cardstock’s color and texture. Spot-UV might be compared to a highlighter, drawing attention to an important portion of your business cards.
Spot-UV is achieved by applying ultraviolet-cured coatings over ink on paper, which intensifies the color and instantly dries.
With Spot-UV, the distinction between gloss and uncoated finish offers a sensory experience that is both visual and tactile. It is one of the most preferred finishes among company owners and professionals.
When using Spot-UV over other finishing methods, utilize only coated paper material to ensure the best results. The UV coating can occasionally leak into the paper when using uncoated materials, leaving very little on the surface.
How Should Your File Be Prepared for Spot-UV Business Cards?
After devoting so much time and energy to designing your business cards, you must ensure that they are sent to the printer correctly so that there is no opportunity for error. Preparing the file according to the printer’s precise instructions is crucial to the success of your business cards.
First, the Spot-UV mask file must be 100 percent black and white and posted alongside the full-color image file. Spot-UV will be applied only to the completely black regions. White will denote regions that will not be coated with Spot-UV.
