Want to create a business card that looks and feels as unique as your business? Custom spot UV business cards could be a wonderful option. We’ll add clear polymer to sections of your design – text, logo or both – for a raised, 3D effect with a whole lot of shine.
To create your spot UV card, first choose your matte paper weight: 300 gsm standard or 360 gsm premium. Pick the full-colour design that appeals to you, add your custom details and tell us where to add the raised print. We’ll take care of the rest, and your cards will arrive looking great and ready to get noticed.
To make sure your printed product looks its best, please review our bleed, trim and safety area info.
Bleed (Red Line): Your background should reach this line. This helps to prevent white lines from appearing along the edges.
Trim (Solid Blue Line): This line shows the expected edges.
Safe Area (Dotted Grey Line): Any text and images need to fit within this box.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will my design look good with spot UV?
A: Spot UV works especially well on logos and large text (10 pt. fonts or larger). If you want to take full advantage of the glossy effect, consider making sure the text or image uses a high-contrast colour. If you’re using smaller text or have a monochromatic design, you may want to consider another option.
Q: What’s the difference between paper thicknesses? Should I choose a standard or premium paper for my spot UV business cards?
A: Our spot UV cards come in two matte paper weights – standard (300 gsm) and premium (360 gsm). Standard matte cards have a silk-coated front and back, while premium cards have a special matte varnish on the front side. We typically recommend standard matte cards for high-volume distribution – trade shows, events or package inserts. For smaller-scale use, we’d recommend our premium paper.
Q: Can I get rounded corners?
A: Yes. When you select our standard shape, you can choose between our 90-degree standard corners or 6 mm rounded corners.
Q: Can I request a custom size for my card?
A: Not at this time.
Q: Can I print on the back of my card?
A: Yes. You can choose from our one- or two-sided printing options. Please note that spot UV can only be applied to the front.
Q: Can I get a square card with rounded corners?
A: Not at this time.
