Talk About Business Cards That Pop

Your business cards can get a whole lot livelier with raised spot UV business card printing. Emboss your logo or any image in your business card to make them stand out from the rest of the other details. Add texture to product images and get your message across to your audience more effectively.


The Perfect Size

Raised spot UV business cards are available in the standard size which is 2” x 3.5”. These cards would fit nicely in a business card wallet. Bring them anywhere with you.


Impress in One Look and Touch

Our premium business cards are exactly that. We print on 16 pt. cardstock that elevates the sleek and distinct look on your business cards.

Some of its standout features include:

16 pt. cardstock
  • Heftier weight thanks to the velvet laminate that increases its thickness to 18 pt. cardstock
  • Surface prints colors in a soft, muted shade that shifts the focus to the extra gloss on the raised spot UV
  • Water and tear-resistant

This is one more reason why raised print business cards are ideal for promoting high-end products and services.


Smooth As Velvet

Anything that’s not UV coated is covered in velvet lamination. The soft texture is the perfect contrast to the embossed parts of your design. The velvety areas produce no glare which makes the raised UV appear even shinier.


Raise Every Color

We use digital raised ink printing instead of the traditional thermography method. The former can print in a wide range of colors whereas the latter can only be printed in 2 colors at most.

This means you can print any image and still produce vivid colors. As an added bonus, business cards have a smoother finish unlike in thermography where the final product feels rough to the touch.


Q&A

What do you mean by turnaround time?
Turnaround time refers to the number of business days it would take to print your business cards. Shipping time is not included.

Are 16 pt. cardstocks waterproof?
No. However, they are moisture-resistant thanks to the glossy finish.

What’s the difference between spot UV and raised spot UV?
Raised spot UV is the same as spot UV. In this case, a thicker layer of spot UV is applied to raise the ink off the cardstock.

How high is the ink raised?
It’s raised by 50 microns which is about .05 millimeters.


Raised Spot UV File Preparation Guidelines

What are the best design practices for raised spot UV printing?

  • Limit the text’s font size to a minimum of 7 points, if the font has thin strokes, and 9 points, if the font has thicker strokes.
  • Borders and strokes should be above 1.5 points.
  • Raised spot uv coverage should not be more than 30% of the final order size. If you have more than 30% uv coverage, the cards will be stuck together, making a block of cards.

How should I prepare my file for raised spot UV printing?

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

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

Color all other areas without raised spot UV as white.

For better results, we recommend creating your raised spot uv mask layers in vector-based applications such as Adobe Illustrator. This will help keep the sharp edges of your raised spot uv cards as sharp as they can get.
