What do you want your business card to do for you? Look great? Grab peoples attention? Be memorable? In this modern age of technology there are a number of interesting techniques we can employ to to add that extra layer of awesome. Spot UV is one of these and adding it to your design might just help you stay on that desk or tucked in that wallet for a good while longer before it hits the bin.
Spot UV is a type of finish that is applied to a certain area of print that adds a highly reflective surface to the chosen area. The printer applies a thin layer of varnish on the selected spot or whole side of the card which is then cured by a UV light. The end result can deepen colours with the shine and provides an attention-grabbing addition – sure to make your card stand out!
Why is it so great?
Well conceived and executed application of Spot UV can be the difference between a nice card and a GREAT card. It adds that extra level of fascination and can help you stand out from the crowd. Spot UV works in conjunction with the designs to elevate the overall product. As well as adding a visual element to the print, Spot UV can also add another feel. There’s something we appreciate in the contrasting textures also, for some reason it feels nice to run your fingers over it. As well as looking and feeling great the Spot UV also shields the card from the elements. Spot UV all over one side will stave off the ravages of time and help it stay looking fresh for a good while longer.
