Spot UV Business Cards
A Spot UV finish is a cost effective upgrade to a standard business card. It enables you to create an eye catching contrast that helps your business card design stand out in the crowd.
Print Pricing Table:
Our Spot UV cards are printed on either a 350gsm or a 420gsm smooth white card. The entire card is matte laminated on both sides, then a gloss laminate is applied to selected areas of your card. Gloss can be applied to key elements of your card like your logo or can be used to create a pattern on blank areas. The contrast between gloss and matte lamination makes a card really stand out.
Prices includes full colour CMYK printing on both sides of your card as well as GST and delivery directly to your location.
Our design department can create your artwork from scratch or modify your existing artwork to make it print ready.

If Spot gloss is to be applied directly to any printed elements like your name or logo, please ensure you duplicate the final printed art, to ensure the gloss is placed precisely. Delete any elements you do not want to appear in gloss, change the colour of any elements you'd like to appear in gloss, 100k black. Basically all white on the spot gloss layer will appear matte, all black will appear gloss.
Save artwork as multiple PDF files. One file for the printed CMYK layer, a second file for the Spot gloss layer. Template available on request.
