Spot UV Business Cards

Silk laminated business cards are a relatively new product offering that has gained a lot of traction over the last few years, particularly here in NYC. To add an extra dimension to these silk business cards, we are also able to apply spot UV gloss coating to specific portions of the business card. These business cards are known as spot UV business cards.

The Benefits Of Spot UV Business Cards

These business cards are very appealing because they offer a finish that could only be done with clear foil up until recently. For those who are familiar with any kind of foil stamping, they probably know how time consuming and expensive it can be. Spot UV gloss allows for a nearly identical finish without the cost and time typically associated with that effect.

There are many things that can be done with spot UV business cards. We’ve seen some excellent designs that utilize the spot gloss to outline a logo, but not actually print the logo with ink. This creates the effect of the logo overshadowing everything, but not being overwhelming. It is also very common for people to use spot uv gloss to highlight specific areas of text on a business card. For example, someone might put spot gloss over the company name only, this way it stands out a little more.

What To Consider When Buying Spot UV Business Cards

Despite the appeal of spot uv business cards, there are some limitations that must be considered. First, the spot uv gloss is not as durable as the silk laminated business cards. So when carrying these business cards, one should be aware that the spot gloss can rub off over time. This is particularly true if they are rubbed against each other, or if they are bent.

Another limitation of spot uv business cards would be the accuracy of the spot uv gloss itself. This accuracy is called registration in the print industry. When applying the spot uv gloss, the industry tolerance is 1/16 of an inch. This means if you plan on overlaying spot uv gloss over small text, it might miss the text to some extent. This technique should only be used if the text is large enough. Also, the target area for the spot uv should be slightly larger than the text itself.

I recently got a personal project printed at Japan Printing and was helped by Julian. I was hoping to find a print shop that I could continue working with for future projects and Japan Printing is it! The quality of my postcards is top notch, and I never felt like I was bothering Julian with my questions and initial hesitancy. I couldn’t be happier with the whole process and my beautiful art postcards.

Japan Printing & Graphics did an amazing job for my business. As a retail business owner, specializing in the sale of Native American artworks and jewelry, we needed to find a visual identity that elevated and upscaled our brand, but at the same time stay true to the “natural or organic” look Native retail brands can be associated with. We were interested in a particular look; organic textured paper or cardboard, with a copper metallic stamp of our logo. The final products came out great! We ordered business cards, apparel tags, necklace tags, earring tags and other items. One of their representatives, Marcela, did an amazing job explaining the options they had regarding textured papers, colors, metallic finishes, sizes, pricing etc. I think I knew this was the place to work with, when she took out a couple of BOOKS filled with paper samples . Options were almost limitless, but her guidance and expertise on printing service helped us decide quite efficiently and effortlessly. From a branding perspective, Japan Printing is able to deliver what you envision for your business or service. They helped upscale our products, because presentation matters. If you want to impact your customers with your brand, a clear image of who you are and what you stand for is needed, and Japan Printing can definitely help you out.
