Spot gloss business cards

A little extra shines a long way

Spot Gloss or also known as Spot UV is a favorite and often used special finishing effect of business cards. Add shine to any graphic element of your business card. Thanks to the partial varnish, your customers can feel the design of the business card. The goal is to highlight the elements you want, such as a logo or text, by applying a high gloss UV coating to a selective area on a printed piece.

Our tip: laminate business cards with matt or velvet soft touch laminate, for an even more pronounced shine.

Business Card Enhancement Options


Lamination serves both a protective and aesthetic function. Laminating covers the print over the entire surface of the business card with a thin polygraphic film. This film (laminate) is offered in matte or glossy finishes. The film adds greater durability or provides a good base for partial varnishing. Matte laminate suits darker graphics. Glossy laminate, on the other hand, is suitable for more colorful printing as it enhances the tones of the colors.

Partial UV Varnish

Partial UV varnishing is used for effectively highlighting text, images, and other parts of the business card. A smooth glossy layer of varnish is applied to selected areas of the paper. Partial varnish is often used to highlight a logo of your company on a business card. This effect is best seen on dark surfaces. We recommend coated papers or laminating the card with a matte laminate.

White Printing

White printing is used to maintain coloration when printing on colored or transparent material. For example, to make yellow appear as it does in the graphic design when printed on a red surface, it needs to be underlaid with a white layer. White can also be used independently, as shown in the business card in the picture.


Thanks to personalization, you can create unique business cards. Personalization enriches each card with variable data. Variable data, such as text, numbering, images, or background color of the business card, can be adjusted according to your preferences.

Rounded Corners

Rounded corners can have various radii. The most common radius is 3.5 and 10. Specify it in your graphic design. If you do not want all corners to be rounded, but only some, specify this in the note.


Perforation is the process of punching paper in a single line, which allows tearing the paper into two pieces along this line. Examples include cinema tickets or toilet paper.
