Spot UV Bookmark Printing Keeps Your Brand Top of Mind

Looking for new ways to reach prospective donors after your fundraising event? Spot UV bookmark printing is a unique, useful way to be part of your client’s everyday experience.

How to Promote Your Nonprofit Effectively Using Custom Bookmarks

Working for an educational nonprofit organization? Take advantage of the spot UV bookmark's luxurious look with these helpful promotional tips:

  • Apply extra shine and a raised texture of spot UV printing on your logo or company name. The polished touch guides readers to the important details about your organization.
  • Contrast spot UV gloss with a smooth matte surface or give your design a consistent shine with gloss on both sides.
  • Print in large or handy sizes that are easy to keep and enclose in a book. Select the standard 2" x 8" or the slightly longer 3.5" x 8.5.
  • Include important contact information like your website, email, and number. Interested donors can easily contact you once they see these details.
  • Add a 1/4" or 1/8" hole in the top center to attach a string to each bookmark.

How to Prepare Your Artwork for Spot UV Printing

  1. Create two layers that differentiate the areas printed in regular ink from the elements with spot UV printing.
    1. The regular CMYK layer shows which areas are printed in ink. The elements should show their actual colors and sizes on print.
    2. The spot uv printing layer only shows the elements that will appear in spot UV. The element(s) that will be printed in spot UV should have the same location as seen on the CMYK layer. Apply 100% K on the spot UV area and place the rest of the design in white.
    3. The images below show the difference between the two layers:

  2. Alignment is crucial to the file preparation process. The CMYK and spot UV printing layers should both have the same size. Common elements must be in the same position on both layers.
