Design & Style Advice: Spot UV

Depends a lot on what type of final design you would like to have
Keep in mind, there is absolutely no difference to the instructions of how to upload a Spot UV file.

Use it for text

Spot UV is excellent to create a wide background design on the card. How you want that background design to be incorporated into the business card can go in two separate main ways.
1. Notice the text first, the Spot UV second:
2. Notice the Spot UV first, the text second:
This will look almost as though

Honeycomb
Honeycomb can extend across the background of the card
A popular pattern with Spot UV is a honeycomb pattern. This pattern is paired with this finishing option the most out of all other choices.

Create the logo with Spot UV
The logo with Spot UV will make you more eye-catching.

Geometric Design
When you have geometric designs on your business card, Spot Uv can make it a more 3D look on it.

How do I add depth to my design using Spot UV?
Depending on illustration and Spot UV design, your business card can have depth
This works especially well with illustrations. An illustration across one side of the card can set up the basis for depth.

White Spot UV?
There is no white Spot UV. All Spot UV is transparent. However, since the Spot UV is transparent, if you apply it over the card with no ink printed color underneath (blind Spot UV), and achieve the same “white Spot UV” look. If you wish to emphasize this aspect of your card, add a background color to every part except the Spot UV area.

What printed colors should I use?
Spot UV looks good against any type of coloring, but the look that works best for your design depends on what you want the final look to be.
-Most Spot UV designs MorningPrint receives have dark printed colors.
-Light, neutral colors tend to have a more subtle Spot UV because it is transparent.
-Spot UV looks good against the light, bright colors as well
