Stand Out From The Crowd By Using Spot-UV

Are you tired of using the same standard looking print products? If you are, all it takes is one simple addition to completely change the look of your business card. I’m talking about Spot-UV. If you have never heard of Spot-UV, it’s a shiny added layer applied to a design or portion of print products such as business cards, postcards, and posters. 

Spot-UV will give attention and dramatize an important part of your card or product in which you want to emphasize. Any time light hits the Spot-UV it shines, shimmers, and stands out. For instance, if you have your company logo, company name, or design you can put the spotlight onto this and bring it out by giving that section a high-gloss, very luminous effect.

We were extremely happy to have the chance to work with Ben Kwok, who is an amazing visual designer and illustrator. If you want to know more about Ben, please read our previous blog post entitled “Artistic Genius Ben Kwok Speaks.” In today’s blog we used Ben’s outstanding and highly intricate work to showcase the strong and eye-catching effect of Spot-UV. spot-uv-bioworkz




We took Ben’s “Tiger Helm” design and placed it on one of our 4 x 6 postcards. As you can see the difference from photo 1 and photo 2 is that the Tiger Helm is shining and is really highlighting the detail of the design. We loved this illustration because you can see the Spot-UV reflect the light and shine off the design while the rest of the card is standard, and does not have gloss. The design as you can see completely stands out from the card and immediately grasps your attention. Spot-UV is a very unique finishing gloss because it can point out the detail of any design.  


This is the back of our standard business card. The owl is coated with a layer of luscious Spot-UV. The Owl against the white card completely stands out and exposes the very fine details of the illustration, and all it takes is a splash of our Spot-UV.  The back of any business card is extremely valuable. The reason is you have all of your contact information in the front, so no need to state the same on the back. Show who you are and your personality on the back side and you will have yourself an unforgettable business card. Since Ben is an illustrator it’s important for him to of course showcase his art and work and the back of the card does it nicely. While Spot-UV brings the card to life it also protects it from wear and tear and keeps it looking new. Don’t let the back of your business card go to waste.



Spot-UV isn’t only for business cards, it can be used for an array of printing products and as we can see it greatly enhances the overall look. The“Ornate Elephant,” was placed on our 5 x 7 postcard and also is using Spot-UV. As you can see in the first image of the”Ornate Elephant,”  is shining quite a bit. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary and highly impressive, Spot-UV can enhance anything from a company name to a highly intricate design such as the illustrations we used from visual designer and illustrator Ben Kwok. Start using our one-of-a-kind Spot-UV today and see the difference.
