What is the difference between spot UV and raised spot UV business cards?
Spot UV is a flat finish or a shiny layer that goes on the exact spot where you would like your printed piece to have an area of a high-gloss coating. Raised spot UV is the same process, except the UV that gets applied stands out from the product, such that if you run your fingers over the card you will feel the UV. The depth of the raised spot UV is 50 microns.
Can the front and back sides of the business card have raised spot UV?
Yes. Raised spot UV can be applied to the front of the card or on both sides
How can I ensure the best result on raised spot UV business cards?
For best results, please make sure that UV coverage is less than 30%. Otherwise, the cards will be stuck together and become a block of cards. Also, the mask file must be vector art created in a vector-based program such as Illustrator. Otherwise, you won’t have sharp edges on the artwork. Up to 70% coverage is acceptable only with patterns, thin strokes, or small shapes. Ideally, the size of the area, shape, or image covered with raised foil should not exceed 1” x 1”.
What is the smallest font I can use in my raised spot UV artwork? It is recommended that you do not use smaller than 6pt font on the raised spot UV artwork. If, however, you use fonts with thicker strokes, it is recommended that you do not use smaller than 9pt font.
How do I set up a raised spot UV job?
Raised spot UV jobs are set up the same way as spot UV jobs. When creating a raised spot UV job, you must include a raised spot UV mask file along with the regular print file. Please note, the mask file must be vector art created in vector-based programs such as Illustrator. The raised spot UV mask file is used to show where the UV coating needs to be applied. Please only use solid 100% K (C 0%, M 0%, Y 0%, K 100%) to indicate where you would like the UV. Do not use shadows, glows, or grayscale images. White will indicate no UV.
