Premium Thick Postcards
Our 16pt C2S stock is covered in matte lamination for 18pt cards, or soft touch lamination for 19pt cards. The result is professional and luxurious.
Clear Spot Gloss
By supplying a spot UV file, you indicate where you would like us to add the glossy UV. This creates beautiful results that make the design pop.
Making Print Tactile
Run your fingers over the raised spot UV on soft, smooth lamination to see how print can offer a memorable tactile experience.
Please submit two PDF files:
- Regular full color artwork
- Spot UV template indicating the area of the SPOT
On the spot UV template file, indicate the spot UV areas by using 100% K. Non-UV areas should be white. For best results, ensure this file is vector.
If you require one side to be completed UV coated, the corresponding page in your template file should be entirely filled with 100% K.
If ordering a 4/4 job with spot UV on only one side, please ensure that page 1 of your artwork is the spot UV side.We do not recommend extending the spot UV design to the edge of the card, as there would be a high possibility of the varnish peeling off. There should be at least a 5mm varnish-free area around the edges. Failing to provide this could result in delays and/or unexpected print results.
Spot UV Accuracy
Positioning of the spot UV cannot be 100% guaranteed. Please note that there may be a shift of approximately 1/16" in the spot UV position on the printed product. We do not recommend placing spot UV on small text or very small images.
