When our 16pt Suede cards were introduced with the Raised Spot UV option, they were instantly a big hit. The card reconnects us to the “touchy-feely” world of textures and new combinations of materials. It is the perfect combination of something familiar with something new. This card has a true visual impact.
Your customers will be delighted by the bright shiny details that rise from the velvety smooth suede card foundation. The unique balance of a 16pt Velvet Laminated card highlighted by Spot Gloss with a Height of 50 Microns, creates a tactile and visual experience that customers can feel and see.
Raised Spot UV jobs are set up the same way as Spot UV jobs. When creating a Raised Spot UV job, you must include a Raised Spot UV mask file along with the regular print file.
Please note, the mask file must be vector art created in vector-based programs such as Illustrator.
The Raised Spot UV mask file is used to show where the UV coating needs to be applied.
It is recommended that you do not use smaller than 6pt font on the Raised Spot UV Artwork. If, however, you use fonts with thicker strokes, it is recommended that you do not use smaller than 9pt font.
For best results, please make sure that UV coverage is less than 30%. Otherwise, the cards will be stuck together and become a block of cards. Also, The mask file must be a vector art created in a vector-based program such as Illustrator. Otherwise, you won’t have sharp edges on the artwork.
Up to 70% coverage is acceptable only with patterns, thin strokes or small shapes. Ideally, the size of the area, shape or image covered with raised foil should not exceed 1in x 1in.

To better understand how a business may benefit from using plastic business cards, below we have listed some characteristics that make them different from standard printed paper stock business cards.
Benefits of Plastic Cards
- These cards are incredibly durable. The typical plastic business card has a longer life than a traditional paper stock card, which means that your customers will retain them longer, and your business’s contact details on the card will last just as long.
- Plastic business cards can leave a lasting impression. They can have unique designs, which in turn makes it easier for your customers to remember your business.
- They impress when you hand them out. Plastic business cards are more uncommon than paper stock cards, and that’s something people notice as soon as you hand them out. This automatically makes people associate your company with one that’s different from others.
- They have a subtle perceived value. Plastic cards feel similar to credit cards, which means that customers will associate your company with a heightened worth when they touch or look at a plastic business card.

Thinking of purchasing some print material and you are not quite sure which finish you should choose? Here is a look into the benefits of UV Coated, Matte Finish, and Uncoated Paper Stocks.
UV Coated Paper Stocks – If you like to use bright colors and photos in your print material, UV high gloss coating may preserve the standard of the prints over the years. The gloss coating provides thickness for the card stock and will definitely have a longer lifetime. Also, they are more resistant to dust and moisture.
Matte Finish Paper Stocks - The Matte finish paper stock possess a smooth, non glossy look and appears quite stylish. These cards are used with an aqueous layer after the end of printing procedure that makes your business cards softer with a matte (dull) finish when complete.Keep in mind that even the Matte Finish stock is often difficult to write on, preventing people from making notes on printed pieces.
Uncoated Paper Stocks – These types of uncoated papers soak larger quantities of printer ink, based upon the porousness and also the surface section of uncoated stock. Keep in mind that colors look significantly different on uncoated vs. coated paper. They may appear darker than on the coated stock, and images are not as sharp. A rule of thumb to remember is the thicker the paper, the more ink gets absorbed and the fuzzier images will appear. Uncoated stocks are usually simpler to write upon as the surface area allows the ink much more readily compared to a coated stock. Because ink doesn’t sit on top of the paper, an uncoated stock is ideal for letterhead, envelopes, printing forms and materials to write on.

If you’re an astute business person, you understand that personal appearances matter, and that you only get one chance to leave a great first impression with someone you’re meeting. That’s why you’re interested in the latest and greatest types of business cards, such as silk business cards; making sure yours is attractive and functional will help you be remembered by clients and contacts, and do wonders for your personal networking.
So, why should you consider silk business cards, specifically? To begin with, the process is only suitable for use on a relatively heavy card stock. Heavier card stocks give an impression of weight and gravity to your card, and seem like they are of high quality. The finish itself also has a very unique texture; they feel silky and smooth at the same time, and utterly unlike any other coating or gloss finish that you’ve felt before.
This helps them to give off a certain elegance and touch of class, and will definitely serve to distinguish your card from those that most other people carry; you will send the message that you and your business are both legitimate and of top quality. You can even enhance your silk business cards further, with extra touches such as spot finishing, foil, embossing or die cutting.
