If you have specific graphics, photos, or template ideas, send them our way. If you’d rather leave it up to us, just supply the text and we’ll provide the rest!

Products Description:

Traditional Spot UV Pushed To New Heights!

Create a buzz with velvet – suede postcards with raised spot uv. By utilizing a raised spot uv we can literally lift your image, graphics, photo or logo off of the page. Raised uv has a depth of 50 microns and compounded with our suede – velvet lamination your brand will definitely stand out above the crowd.

Postcards are a great way to advertise your business and spread the word. With raised spot uv printing you can enable your brand to reach new heights by differentiating your materials from other businesses. We offer a variety of sizes to meet your business’s printing needs.

Make Your Postcards Unique By Raising The Ink.

Raised spot uv postcards are printed on a sturdy 16pt cardstock which is roughly half the thickness of a credit card. The thickness of the paper along with the velvet lamination give you a 19pt feel which is sturdy and durable.

Spot uv is  shiny and will allow certain parts of your postcard to pop off of the page. By utilizing this service you can make certain parts of your postcard stand out above the rest. By doing this, your design will have incredible depth and appeal. The Spot uv will not have any effect on the overall base color of your design.

File Setup

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

If you are uploading PDF files created in Photoshop, please be sure all layers are flattened.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.
  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don’t place crop marks inside the work area.)
  4. Artwork should have 1/8″ (0.125″) bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  5. Safe Area is the 1/8″ (0.125″) area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  6. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8″ (0.125″) inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
