What is spot UV?
Spot UV is used by designers to either draw attention to a particular aspect of the design or as part of the design itself and when used effectively adds a wonderful sophistication to printed material. Spot UV serves to create a distinction between printed materials and conveys a quality that sets businesses and individuals apart from others.
Applying a Spot UV over a matt laminated, solid colour is particularly effective - the contrast of a dark blue for example with a light-absorbing matt laminate finish contrasts wonderfully with a highly reflective UV varnish.
Usually the preserve of only the richest self-promoters, our SPOT UV business cards are kind to the environment using up to 80% less energy and generating no nasty pollutants to boot!
Spot UV ink when applied also has a slightly raised feel, similar to other digital embossing techniques. So not only does this effect look good, it also feels good !
Please note we can currently only apply Spot UV to one side of your business card.
