Shine Bright With Spot UV Postcards

Are you running out of ways to make your business stand out among the competition? Try out spot UV postcards! This stylish alternative to regular postcards is a surefire way to make your postcard shines in any postcard rack or mail pile.

Spot UV postcard printing involves adding a UV-cured coating to specific parts of the postcard design such as the product photos, the business logo, or even the call-to-action, to make them pop. Because they’re proven to grab attention, spot UV postcards have become a popular option for advertising special events and for improving customer response rates.

Here at NextDayFlyers, spot UV postcards come in extra thick 16 pt. cardstock in matte or gloss finishes. You may order spot UV cards in a range of sizes, from the standard 4” x 6” to large sizes such as 6” x 11”.
