    Spot gloss and rainbow spot gloss business cards

    Our spot gloss business cards are printed full colour on 450gsm silk card. We then laminate them with either matt or velvet (soft touch) lamination to protect the card and add a luxury feel. Specific areas of the business card then have gloss highlights (spot uv effect) added on top of the laminate. This technique creates a striking contrast between the matt/velvet finish of the card and the gloss highlights. We have both standard clear gloss and also a unique rainbow spot gloss which is clear but changes colour as it diffracts light across the colour spectrum. Depending on the light, the spot gloss may appear clear, several shades of one colour, a blend of a few colours or it may have the full rainbow effect!

    Multiple sets of business cards

    If you require multiple sets of cards for different people, please contact us for a custom quote. Prices will vary depending on the quantity of cards you'd like and your artwork. For example, if you have each person’s name in foil and order 10 sets of cards, we will need to make 10 different foil stamping dies. If foil is not required, or if the foil artwork is the same on every card (e.g. a logo), we will only need one foil die, and 10 sets of artwork can be supplied for digital or litho printing which will reduce the cost. Please contact us with your artwork, the total number of cards you require and the number of people/different sets of artwork.

    Spot gloss registration

    Due to machine movement, registration of spot gloss can vary approximately 1mm during production. Please be aware of this if you require registered spot gloss (spot gloss highlights directly on top of an area of print e.g. a logo or lettering). We usually advise to use blind spot gloss which involves adding spot gloss highlights that aren't registered on top of a print to give the best effect.
