Spot UV Business Cards add an unrivalled vibrancy to your designs, and your client's Business Cards. Opt for this high-quality card to ensure your clients are remembered!
To create the Spot UV visual effect, an Ultra Violet gloss coating is applied to a sturdy 450gsm Matt Laminated Business Card. This provides a stunning glossy finish to targeted areas on the card. Spot varnish is best suited to large patterned or solid areas as this has a greater impact on the overall design.
Choose from single or double-sided litho printing, with a single or double-sided spot varnish to suit your custom Business Card design.
