Spot UV Business Cards - Raised Spot UV Suede Business Cards
Raised Spot UV Business Cards
Love the feel of raised business cards? Do Spot UV business cards make your heart skip a beat? Well do we have a thing for you ^_^! Introducing our new 20pt Raised Spot UV Business cards. Ever so soft, these cards are of the same paper stock as our suede business cards. Only instead of having only the option of printing 4-color offset (CMYK) we are now offering an additional finish of raised Spot UV on one side of the card.
What is Raised Spot UV?
Traditional Spot UV is a coating technique that uses UV light to cure a clear varnish. The look of Spot UV is most similar to a clear gloss or varnish. This technique is great on plain paper for a subtle tone on tone effect or on top of a print to add shine or pop to a specific element in the design.
Raised Spot UV is specially formulated to pop out from the card at a depth of about 50 microns. This raised texture gives the card an added textural quality when you run your fingers it.
When designing for Raised Spot UV please consider these points:
- Raised Spot UV can only be used on 1 side of the card.
- Raised Spot UV cannot go to the edge of the card. A 1/8 in clearance around the edge of the card is needed for trimming. See image in the next section.
- All Raised Spot UV orders must have a vector mask file to indicate where the finish is to be applied.
- Mask files must be solid 100%k (C:0% M:0% Y:0% K:100%), that means no shadows, glows, or greyscale images. White areas will indicate no UV.
- For regular style typefaces do not use font sizes smaller than 6pt, however on thicker typefaces we recommend that you not go smaller than 9pt.
