Out of all the printing variants available, why should you go for spot UV business cards? This is a viable option if you want your business card to stand out. In a stack of thin, cardboard business cards, one with a shiny effect and a special coating for UV protection will make your card get noticed.
But how do spot gloss business cards get made in the first place? If this is something that you want to have for your business, it is important to look for the right printing company. There are plenty of digital printing companies out there and they will most likely use desktop printers. There’s nothing wrong with this, they’re cheap and are everywhere. But if you want to stand out and get professional-looking results, it is better to go for offset printing. Companies that offer this kind of printing employ state-of-the-art printing presses so whether it’s a business card with a glass-like coating or a huge menu for your restaurant, they can do a professional printing job.
Spot UV business cards are also called spot gloss business cards. Thick card stock is used and instead of a matte finish, the glossy effect is achieved because of a varnish coating used on the paper material. There are spot UV business cards which have a matte or non-shiny finish but if you want something glossy, a silk or satin effect can also be achieved with the same varnish coating.
When you print business cards, such an effect – be it matte or glossy – will make your brand or name stand out. If you want, the spot UV effect can be applied on a certain part of the card only, while the rest of the surface has a matte finish. For such a design and printing option, it is important to pay close attention to detail. See to it that the font, color, and other design elements used on the card all blend together to showcase what you are all about as a company.
Spot gloss business cards are a great option if you want your business card to stand out. Talk to your printing company about it and once finished, you can distribute these professional-looking cards to your business contacts with pride.
