What is Spot UV?
Spot UV works by printing a clear glossy area on top of your printed business card or other item,
The simplest way of setting up your artwork so this process is successful is by creating an additional page, highlighting the area you require to be with the clear glossy area.
Here is an example.
This is the finish printed design:
Jack, wants the logo and the wave at the bottom to be the area that is clear glossy over the print.
Jack provided us with a second page in the pdf artwork so it shows exactly the area needed to be covered. All the dimensions are the same from the initial artwork. He has made this one colour as the following image:
In order to ensure that there are no white edges, it is important to include 3mm bleed in the artwork, exactly how first page should also be. Here is an image:
Once we receive your file, we will check that it is correct for the printing of your spot UV business card. If there is any problem, we will work with you until you have the artwork correct. If you are still not sure, send us your file and describe where you want the UV spot to be and we will quote you on any work that is need to achieve your print project.
We look forward to helping you with your Spot UV project.
