What are Spot UV Business Cards?

Whether you are aware of it or not, you have undoubtedly handled a business card that featured a full wash of UV gloss coating. That is because high gloss UV business cards are the most commonly produced type of card in the world. Spot uv, as you might have guessed, means that the UV coating is only applied to certain areas or “spots” on the business card. This is generally utilized in order to create a desirable visual and tactile contrast between gloss and matte or uncoated mediums.

When submitting a spot UV business card order, you or your graphic designer must provide what we call a “spot mask” along with your regular CMYK print file. The spot mask file is simply a black and white PDF, where anything that is shown in key black (100% K) will get coated with UV and anything shown in white will not. Make Sense? If not, please check out the file preparation tab.


Our most basic print products will complete production in 2-4 days.

Typically, ship time from our hub in Texas to an address in the USA takes 1-3 days.

In the best-case scenario, you will receive your prints in 3 days, worst-case, 7 days.


Most people come to us for our special finishing features and the ability to combine them with premium and custom paper stocks.

All custom orders have a turnaround time of 10-12 business days.

If you live in New York, transit time from our hub in Texas will likely be 3 days with ground service, so you would receive your prints 15 days from the time you have paid your invoice and approved your proof

    When my clients needed to order more business cards, I knew I wanted to convince them to try Print Peppermint. I had been using them for a while with other clients and was always pleased with the final product. Since this client was on a tight budget, I wanted to see the difference in cost between Print Peppermint and Vistaprint (the company they used for their last cards). With the new customer discount, we got the Print Peppermint cards for LESS than what we would have paid at Vistaprint. And let me just say, the product is SO much better and the clients were ecstatic. In case anyone is wondering, it's not just the product that is amazing but the people who work there and the customer service is TOP NOTCH.

FontSize_image-01

Special Finish Guidelines

If your project includes foil stampingspot UV, embossing, or die cutting you will need to provide a mask file (per finish) alongside your design files.

  1. Create a black and white pdf file where all black areas have a color value of K = 100%  (C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100)
  2. Black areas represent where you want the finish to be located and white means no finish will be applied.
  3. If your project contains more than one finish, you must provide separate mask files for each finish.

Example Uses: In the video depicted above, spot UV is used to create a repeating background pattern that provides just the right depth in order to make the logo jump right off the card. Other uses might include using spot UV to highlight a logo or employee name.

Often, good design is about creating contrast, it’s about guiding your viewer’s eyes and telling a convincing story by combining shapes, photos, color, and typography. Spot UV business cards are an excellent choice for businesses that wish to really create visual emphasis. Spot UV also serves to create a textural or tactile contrast as well. When your prospect runs their finger over your card for the first time, the variable sensation of smooth flat matte stock and the sleek of UV gloss will let them know that you are someone who pays attention to detail.

    You cannot combine other discounts with the whoops, unfortunately, but you can save that $20 for a future order 🙂

    Thank you for the prompt and courteous reply. I originally wanted the onyx, but with the colors I need, it was going to be upwards of $400+ Tax and shipping for everything. I’d love to do that in the future when I release new products. I wasn’t aware of the “whoops program“. I’d be happy to take advantage of the offer and resubmit files. I also received an email that said I could put a $20 credit towards my next order for leaving a review. That wasn’t the purpose of my review, and the cards DO look good. But I was wondering if it would be asking too much to apply that $20 to the “whoops program” as well?
