Spot UV Sales Sheets

Sales Sheets Bring Out the Best and Brightest Spots of Your Business

Need to stand out at the next big trade show or product bidding? Bring a set of spot UV sales sheets that stand out upon being presented. The extra shine and varied texture will draw attention to the images and text you need to highlight.

Shine Out and Stand Out in a Glance

You only have a few minutes to make a strong impression. Spot UV guides customers to highlighted areas on your sales sheet design. Here are some ways to utilize this premium marketing tool:

  • Create a visual feast for your customers. Apply the spot UV on a central image or graphics that help customers understand your services. Have it placed on one or both sides of your product sell sheet.
  • Elevate the overall look with an elegant matte coating to contrast the extra gloss or double up on shine with a gloss surface.
  • Show your products off in just the right size. Need a wider space or a standard letter size that’s easy to present at meetings? Choose from the go-to 11" x 8.5" or the generous 11" x 17".
  • Print on durable 16 pt. cardstock to elevate the luxurious look this printing technique creates.

Spot UV Printing File Requirements

Keep in mind the following file requirements below as you create a design using our downloadable templates:

  1. The font size should be a minimum of 7 or 8 points. Avoid printing small text or fine lines in spot uv.
  2. Border and stroke must be more than 1.5 points.
  3. Images and artwork should be at least 300 DPI.
  4. All files should be in CMYK color mode.
  5. Make sure there is a 1/8" (0.125") bleed around the trim size.
  6. The safe zone should be 1/8" (0.125") inside the trim line.

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.
