 Spot UV

When supplying artwork for a single sided Spot UV Business Card, please attach a 2-page pdf.

  • Page 1 should feature the CMYK artwork
  • Page 2 should be the Spot UV artwork

Spot UV artwork should be supplied as a vector file, with solid black areas denoting exactly where the Spot UV varnish is to be applied. These areas should be 100% black, and not made up from cyan, magenta and yellow.

If you need a business card with Spot UV on one side, but regular print on both sides, you should proceed as follows:

  • Place your order as a double-sided Spot UV business card
  • Supply artwork as a 4-page pdf
  • Page 1, supply the CMYK artwork for side 1 (front)
  • Page 2, supply the CMYK artwork for side 2 (back)
  • Page 3, supply the Spot UV artwork for side 1 (front)
  • Page 4, supply a blank page as no Spot UV is required on side 2 (back)

For Spot UV on both sides, Page 4 should contain the Spot UV artwork for Side 2 (back).

Rest assured, you’ll only be charged for Spot UV on sides where it’s actually used.

 Foiling Artwork Guide

When supplying artwork for a single-sided item with foiling, please attach a 2-page pdf.

  • Page 1 should feature the CMYK artwork
  • Page 2 should be the Foil artwork

Foil artwork should be supplied as a vector file, with solid black areas denoting exactly where the Foil is to be applied. These areas should be 100% black, and not made up from cyan, magenta and yellow.

When supplying artwork for a double-sided item with Foiling on one or both sides, you should proceed as follows:

  • Supply artwork as a 4-page pdf
  • Page 1, supply the CMYK artwork for side 1 (front)
  • Page 2, supply the CMYK artwork for side 2 (back)
  • Page 3, supply the Spot UV artwork for side 1 (front), or supply a blank page if no foil is required on this side
  • Page 4, supply the Spot UV artwork for side 2 (back), or supply a blank page if no foil is required on this side

Rest assured, you’ll only be charged for Foiling on sides where it’s actually used. 

Please note :-
Foiled areas should stop short of the cutter guide, so that no foil is cut through during the trimming process. This is to make sure all foiled areas are enclosed within the trimmed piece to avoid flaking at the edges.
