A printed matt substrate comes to life with raised spot UV applied strategically bringing intensity, inspiration, and emotion to business cards that otherwise would not generate the interest that flat cards would.
How to order raised cards:
When ordering this product, for each side where the spot raised UV is to be applied, we will need you to provide 2 files:
#1 - A printing CMYK file as you would normally do. The file must have cut marks and bleed if necessary
#2 - A second file, which should be a vector file. This second file must register with the first one. Using cut marks for registration is the best way to go. This file will only contain graphics either in white or black 100% k=100. The black areas will indicate where the raised spot UV will be applied. No half-tones, no gradients. Only 100% black is admissible.
Our graphics team can create those additional files for you if you order that service
What is the difference between Raised Spot UV vs Regular Spot UV
- Regular spot UV has a thin layer of UV varnish on top of designed areas, modifying the reflective condition of the areas where the UV is applied.
- Raised Spot UV not only changes the reflective condition, but it does it in a way not seen in the regular method. The fact that the UV is so thick, allows for the reflections and light to easily call the attention to the areas where the raised spot UV has been applied.
This product is unlike anything seen before. This is a way to provide some dimensional depth to a commercial product.
Some historical reference:
In the renaissance, painters have used techniques that delivered volumetric images and thickness in their work. This is the first time in history when similar results can be obtained massively at very affordable costs. As in art, proper design will make a raised UV card as a jewel or as a poor piece.
