Spot Gloss Cards 16pt

Spot gloss printing on cards, which is sometimes referred to as UV spot gloss or spot varnish printing, adds a clear layer of coating on top of your full color art in just the spots you want.


This spot gloss option is for cards printed on 16 point coated two sides card stock (16pt C2S in printing shorthand). We do offer spot gloss on laminated card stocks as well. 


16 point spot gloss cards are printed in full color on the offset press on 16pt coated card stock that has a low luster sheen, creating a perfect contrast for the shiny gloss elements to catch light reflections.


Print cards in sizes ranging from small cards to business cards, hang tags, postcards, rack cards and large cards.


This printing option is an excellent way to highlight specific areas of your design or to create patterns. It is even used as a security feature as it defeats your cards from being photocopied.
