Matt Lamination – Silky and smooth to the touch, and softens images.
Gloss Lamination – Ultra shiny finish, artwork colours appear punchier.
Velvet Soft Touch Lamination – Feels like peach skin, colours appear richer.
Spot UV – this additional finish adds a raised UV varnish to a chosen area on our Matt Laminated cards
When supplying files for print you must also supply artwork for the spot UV itself. Please always supply as 1 pdf with 4 pages within. Pg 1 - Artwork Front // Pg 2 - Artwork Back // Pg 3 - Spot UV Front // Pg 4 - Spot UV Back
The spot UV artwork should consist of solid black shapes - 100% K only and in the exact position on the page where the spot UV is required, ideally in vector as opposed to bitmap formula. The Spot UV must be on a separate page and have the same dimensions and crop marks in the same position as the printed file.
Spot UV works well on larger areas and as a pattern on a flat background.
PLEASE NOTE: Spot UV varnish is applied using a process similar to screen printing, and has registration tolerances of approximately ±0.5 mm. It is not therefore recommended that small text or thin lines are spot UV'd as perfect register cannot be guaranteed.
