#1 Spot Varnished Business Cards

If you are looking for business cards that really stand out, our spot-varnished cards really do add an extra dimension.

What is spot varnishing? It is a process where a layer of varnish is applied to specific areas of the design. It could be a specific image within the design, certain text you want to highlight or your company logo for example. By building up that specific area with varnish it gives a 3-dimensional effect.

There are several benefits to spot-varnished business cards:

  1. Enhanced Visual Appeal: By highlighting specific design elements the card is visually striking. The contrast between glossy and matte surfaces adds depth and sophistication to the card.
  2. Increased Durability: The combination of a laminate and varnish coating adds a protective layer making the card more durable and resistant to wear and tear.
  3. Tactile Experience: The 3D effect of the varnish adds a tactile element to your business card, making it more engaging to touch and handle.
  4. Professional Appearance: The glossy finish of the varnished element of the card gives it a more polished and professional look. It conveys a sense of quality and attention to detail, reflecting positively on the person and business it represents.
  5. Highlight Key Information: Spot varnish can be strategically applied to specific information such as logos, contact details or important messaging.
  6. Brand Differentiation: Using a spot varnish creatively can help a brand differentiate itself from its competitors. A unique and well-designed business card can leave a lasting impression.
  7. Positive First Impression: A visually appealing and professionally designed business card creates a positive first impression. It demonstrates that the person or business values quality and attention to detail.

Overall spot varnished business cards offer a powerful combination of visual appeal, professionalism, and durability, making them an excellent choice for leaving a lasting impression on potential clients and contacts.

Artwork Requirements: If you are designing your business cards yourself the artwork file will need a separate layer with the elements that are to be spot varnished. Label this layer as “Spot Varnish” or a similar name. Ensure that the spot varnish layer aligns perfectly with the elements to be highlighted.
