You should FEEL the mushy contact UV coating that we’re making use of to our new business playing cards. People cannot maintain their palms off these playing cards!

Let’s speak about how these are produced and the right way to put together information for tender contact UV coating.

You might want to put together two information for all sides of the business card: one for the CMYK picture and one other file for the spot UV coating. The CMYK file would be the content material of the picture, whereas the spot UV coating file will probably be made with 100% black in CMYK file. There can’t be some other colours contained in the spot UV coating file. Also, be sure there isn’t a different knowledge within the Okay (Black) channel, akin to highlights or smooth edges.

As you’ll be able to see, the spot UV file is made with alternatives full of 100% black. Be artistic with these choices. The extra intelligent use of spot UV makes the playing cards actually dramatic. Be cautious to not overuse the spot UV as a result of that may take away the texture of the tender contact coating on the stability of the cardboard. The greatest outcomes happen when utilizing spot UV coating sparingly for impression.

Note: Be cautious to line-up information precisely. Drop me a word when you’ve got a query on methods to line-up these two information.

As far as how the mushy contact UV playing cards are printed, they’re printed on 20 level inventory utilizing high-pigmented CMYK inks. The photographs are screened with 20 micron stochastic imagery, leading to steady tone pictures. Just like a photographic print!
