Difference That You Can Feel

Bring your business cards to life with raised spot UV business card printing. This printing process introduces texture that can mimic the look and feel of certain products. You can also use it to bring attention to your business logo.

Having that texture on your business cards can be the one feature that sets you apart from the pack. It really is a difference maker.

Built Like a Tank

Raised spot UV business card printing only works if it’s printed on a thick piece of paper. Our 16 pt. cardstock is as tough as they come. 16 pt. business cards are about half the thickness of a credit card. Our resilient cardstock is able to outlast ordinary, flimsy paper.

Our tank-like cardstock is built to last. Your competition’s business cards will pale in comparison.

Velvety Soft

Areas not covered by the spot UV coating will have a velvet lamination applied to it. It’s the perfect contrast to spot UV and will result in a silky smooth finish that’s soft to the touch.

Our premium business cards are then topped off with gloss coating which adds protection against fingerprints and moisture damage.

Go Beyond 2 Colors

Instead of traditional raised ink thermography, we use digital raised ink printing. What does that mean for you? With the traditional method, you can only print in 1 or 2 colors. Our raised spot UV business cards can be printed in a wide range of colors.

We can also print full images and not just text and logos as you would with the traditional method.

Q&A

You can add spot UV up to 30% of the surface.
