Sensory Spot UV Folders - More Info


Where else can you get superb quality, 'Dusense' extra-thick, super-glossy Spot UV document folders, ready assembled and dispatched, at such fabulous prices in as little as two working days? Quite simply, other than at Flexpress, you can't.


Whether or not you request a proof, all supplied artwork files undertake our automated 10 point file check to ensure your printed job turns out exactly as you intend. Using sophisticated software, files are automatically imposed ready for printing in the most effective way to minimise waste. Every job is sent to print along with a FOGRA colour-matched proof to ensure high levels of colour accuracy.


Our spot UV folders are available with or without capacity and templates are available to download in your favourite file format.


Spot UV works best with a non-reflective background so we've chosen the ever popular environmentally responsible 350gsm silk as the material of choice for these folders. Enhance the effect even further by selecting a matt or soft-touch protective film laminate.

High Definition Printing:

Every job at Flexpress is printed using the finest technology available. You wont receive any products printed on beefed-up photocopiers from us - another reason we back everything with our total satisfaction guarantee. Pocket Folders are printed either lithographically using LED UV inks or using HP Indigo offset which is arguably the finest digital technology available.

Precision Finishing:

Your pocket folders will be cut out and creased using a Heidelberg Cylinder Machine; still regarded as the most effective way to cut and crease at this size.

Spot UV folders are currently only available in a glued format with or without capacity so will arrive fully assembled and finished.

Please note:

when folded, fibre-cracking along the crease of board is a natural characteristic which becomes ever more apparent when heavy ink coverage is present. The cutting forms we use utilise traditional matrix type creasing rules which helps to minimise cracking but it's unrealistic to guarantee that this will eliminate the issue completely; especially when the folder has been opened and closed a few times. We would always recommend laminating the outer of the folder if this is likely to be a cause of concern; particularly if heavy ink solids have been used. Unless laminating is specified Flexpress are unable to take any responsibility for fibre-cracking, which is ultimately a naturally occurring phenomenon.

Dispatch time (dependent on order quantity)

  • Express - Three working day*
  • Standard - Four working days*
  • Saver - Five working days*

*If ordered before 12 noon. Allow one extra day if ordered after 12 noon.

To ensure our printed work arrives in the best possible conditions, goods are packaged up to to a maximum of 15Kg per box, in extra strong double-walled corrugated boxes and taped with reinforced tape.

All orders are dispatched by reputable national carriers on a next working day service. This will usually arrive by 5pm although please be aware once goods have left our premises we have no influence on when they are delivered. If you would like to upgrade to a AM or Saturday delivery, you can do this at checkout for an additional cost.

Your satisfaction guaranteed

We take quality and customer service very seriously. Our right-first-time approach coupled with cutting edge technology and professional team mean we're confident enough to offer a total satisfaction guarantee. If through any fault of ours, there's an issue with your printing, we'll always arrive at a solution to leave you 100% happy.


FAQs - Sensory Spot UV Folders

Why has the printing cracked down the spine of the folder?

Fibre-cracking on folds is a natural characteristic of paper and board and is more noticeable where heavy ink coverage is intended to go over the spine. Flexpress use a creasing rule and matrix counterforce, which is univerally recognised as the the best method of pre-creasing folders, to dramatically reduce the effect of fibre-cracking. However it is impossible to eliminate completely without laminating so if you feel this may be an issue with your design please ensure you select a laminated finish as Flexpress can't be held responsible for fibre-cracking when laminating is not chosen. 

How are Spot UV Folders packed?

Glued presentation folders are fully assembled and packed in slightly over size A4 double-walled boxes.

What is raised Spot UV?

Raised Spot UV is a form of embossing. Unlike standard Spot UV, though, it is a completely digital process. It therefore does away with expensive dies, set-up and make-ready. The raised effect – to a depth of some 20-50 microns – is created by layering up the polymer above a substrate using the digital printhead to create an embossed 3D effect. This results in a tactile effect similar to Braille, which adds another layer of depth to printed materials.

How many sheets of paper will a non-capacity capacity Spot UV folder hold?

A non-capacity folder can comfortably take at least 15 sheets of typical 80gsm bond. Non-capacity simply means there isn't a gusset so there is a point at which the folder won't close comfortably if there are two many inserts. If in doubt, ask for a sample.

Why are they only available in 350gsm material?

We make hundreds of thousands of folders each year and experience has taught us that 350gsm material offers the best all-round performance in terms of strength and flexibility. Go thinner and the folders are not as strong as they could be and thicker and the folders tend to be too 'springy'

Can you use my cutting form for a Spot UV folder?

The cutting form templates available are designed to specifically cater for the maximum sheet size that can be fed through our DuSense Spot UV machine, so unfortunately no.
