Clear Spot UV

A Tactile Experience

Please submit two PDF files:

  • Regular full color artwork
  • Spot UV template indicating the area of the SPOT

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.

Spot Uv Info

CAUTION: Our spot UV machine manufacturer does not recommend extending the spot UV design to the trimmed edge of the card, as there would be a high possibility of the spot UV peeling off along the trimmed edges. There should be at least a 5mm spot UV-free area around the edges. If you supply spot UV files with full bleed, please note our automation will automatically apply a 5 mm gap (from the trim edge) on your spot UV files to prevent the risks of the trimmed edges lifting/peeling. The non-spot UV varnished area may be visible along the edges as a result. It is best to avoid full bleed on your spot UV files for the above reasons.

Spot UV Accuracy

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.

General File Preparation Guidelines

  1. Download our guides to ensure a more optimal print result.
  2. Be sure to DELETE any hidden layers that are not intended to print (ie: setup guide layers or other hidden artwork layers) to ensure no risk of them appearing on the final print.
  3. Each job (including multiple paged projects) must be submitted as a single PDF file. Ensure that all pages are the same size.
  4. Files must be submitted with proper orientation to ensure proper back up.
  5. It is best to try to avoid using borders in your design. If a border is too close to the trim, the trim may be slightly off-center.
  6. File must consist of 1/8" bleed and all important art and text must be within the safety margin.
  7. Ensure that your PDF is high res and that all images are CMYK at 300 DPI.
  8. Black type should have the following values: C0, M0, Y0, K100.
  9. Embed or outline all fonts.
  10. For best colour results, supply a CMYK only files.
See our Support Center for more details.
