Shine a Light on Your Business or Cause with Spot UV Bookmarks

Spot UV bookmark printing is a fun way to promote businesses, nonprofits, programs, and special events. They’re perfect giveaways at trade shows, conferences, and other high traffic events. 

You can add spot UV coating to enhance your artwork in a number of ways:

  • Highlight messaging or text.
  • Create a textured background.
  • Make your logo pop.

Spot UV bookmarks have staying power and are printed on quality cardstock. They usually end up inside the pages of your customer’s book. The reader returns to your marketing message time and time again. Spot UV bookmarks also send a positive message about reading, which sends a positive message about your brand.


Features to Give Your Brand a Lasting Shine

Spot UV bookmarks are printed to last with the intended purpose of long-term marketing. We offer features to make your custom bookmarks shine:

  • Printed on durable 14 pt. or 16 pt. cardstock for a professional look.
  • Full-color printing to reinforce your brand. Be sure to include a call to action and contact information.
  • Protect your cardstock with coating on both sides. Choose gloss for an extra shiny look or matte for a subdued, elegant touch against the spot UV’s glow.
  • Size choices ranging from 1.5” x 7” to 3.5” x 8.5”. Our most popular is 2” x 7”

Option to drill a hole in the top-center so you can loop your own string or ribbon through the spot UV bookmark. Choose from two available hole sizes: 1/4” and 1/8”


Spot UV File Preparation Guidelines

What are the best design practices for spot UV printing?

  • Limit the text’s font size to a minimum of 7 or 8 points.
  • Border and stroke should be above 1.5 points.
  • Place a 1/16” gap between spot UV and metallic or foil printing areas. The spot UV areas cannot overlap with the metallic or foil printing sections.

How should I prepare my file for spot UV printing?

Your regular color file should come with a spot UV template layer that shows where to apply the spot UV printing.

Apply 100% K to the section that will have spot UV.

Color all other areas without spot UV as white.
