These luxurious laminated business cards have clear gloss applied to areas of your choice.
Our high quality 16pt stock is covered in lamination film to produce a premium 18pt card (silky matte) or 19pt card (soft touch).
Make designs pop on your clients’ business cards with clear spot UV that brings out the colors of the design and adds emphasis to what matters most.
The smooth feel of our laminations combined with the slightly raised spot UV creates a powerful tactile experience through print.
On the spot UV template file, indicate the spot UV areas by using 100% K. Non-UV areas should be white. For best results, ensure this file is vector.
If you require one side to be completed UV coated, the corresponding page in your template file should be entirely filled with 100% K.
If ordering a 4/4 job with spot UV on only one side, please ensure that page 1 of your artwork is the spot UV side.We do not recommend extending the spot UV design to the edge of the card, as there would be a high possibility of the varnish peeling off. There should be at least a 5mm varnish-free area around the edges. Failing to provide this could result in delays and/or unexpected print results.
Positioning of the spot UV cannot be 100% guaranteed. Please note that there may be a shift of approximately 1/16" in the spot UV position on the printed product. We do not recommend placing spot UV on small text or very small images.
File Orientation refers to the orientation of the artwork files submitted. Ensure that they are submitted to back up properly to produce the intended result.
