Print in the 3rd Dimension
Our 3D Spot UV business cards literally take print to another level.
This amazing effect is created by slowly layering a clear varnish directly on to the lamination. It lays on the surface and dries to create a raised gloss. Printed on thick 350gsm silk paper and with a velvety matt soft touch lamination, these cards will scream tactility.
The perfect enhancement to a minimal but bold design. Use the 3D spot UV varnish to pick out elements within your design. Combine the 3D spot UV with a graduated design underneath to create a masterpiece!
