Raised Spot UV Business Cards | Luxury Business Cards - More Info

Summary

Flexpress offer an incredible high-gloss semi-raised Spot UV which both looks and feels great. The high-gloss finish contrasts perfectly with either matt or soft-touch laminate.

Prepress:

Whether or not you request a proof, all supplied artwork files undertake our rigorous 10 point file check at no extra charge to ensure your printed job turns out exactly as you intend. Files are automatically imposed ready for printing in the most effective way to minimise waste. 

Material:

Flexpress use a substantial 400gsm premium, environmentally friendly 'A' grade, triple coated board which offers excellent properties for colour reproduction and holds fine detail well.

High Definition Printing:

All our business cards are printed individually using HP Indigo offset technology. You won't receive any products printed on beefed-up photocopiers from us - another reason we back everything with our total satisfaction guarantee.

Laminate:

Laminating adds a thin protective layer of plastic to the surface of the card giving it a delightful texture whilst adding durability. Choose from a deliciously silky smooth matt laminate or the velvety peach-like texture of luxurious soft-touch laminate. 

Spot UV:

Flexpress were the first in the UK to install the Duplo Dusense - a digital spot UV gloss embellishment system that adds a super-glossy, slightly raised, polymer highlight to selected areas of your card. This is ideal for highlighting pictures or logos, or simply for adding a dramatic finish, or texture that instantly demands attention. The spot UV is laid on top of your choice of laminate for even greater contrast.

Precision Finishing:

Business cards are cut using our Duplo DC646 automated cutting machine - accurate to just 0.2mm. This ensures clean edges and even cards with tight borders are cut accurately. They're packed in durable and handy plastic boxes that hold between 100 and 125 cards.

FAQs - Raised Spot UV Business Cards

test your own raised spot UV design completely FREE OF CHARGE.

Does Spot UV register with my design?

We use special registration marks which are recognised by a camera on the machine. This then adjusts the spot UV position to perfectly register on the print. Unlike other methods, even hairline register is perfectly achievable.

Can I have spot UV on both sides?

Yes, you can select to have our raised Spot UV on either one, or both sides of your card.
