Learn the Basics

Before you create your custom postcard with spot UV printing, it’s good to know the essential stuff:

  • Printed on thick and sturdy 16 pt. cover stock
  • Cover stock comes in gloss or matte
  • Spot UV finish keeps dirt and grease off
  • UV coating seals in the printed color underneath for vividness that lasts
  • Layer of spot UV protects your postcards from peeling, tearing, fading, and scratches
  • Print on only one or both sides

Tip: Give your postcards a makeover by choosing rounded corners for a custom high-end look.

Step Into the SPOTlight

Spot UV adds the shine to different spots of your card. This coating also gives a smooth and silky feel that will make you want to touch it over and over.

The process to make this is simple:

  1. A high gloss, shiny liquid coating is applied to spots on your card stock surface
  2. It goes through a printing press or special machine that cures the coating using ultraviolet light.
  3. It is ready when the coating hardens into a slick, shiny finish that looks like a watermark.

Tip: To achieve high contrast, choose a matte paper or cardstock so your spot UV accents will pop.

Know Your Number

Size matters. When looking into spot UV postcard printing, it’s good to know which size a perfect fit for your specific application will be.

  • 4” x 6” and 5” x 7” are some of the popular standard sizes of postcards. These are small enough to be portable but will still be easily seen.
  • 4.25” x 6” and 4” x 9” have more space than a standard 4” x 6” size so you can put more information or graphics.
  • 6” x 9”, 6” x 11”, and 8.5” x 5.5” are the larger size of the group and are perfect for postcards with more images and text to add.
