Quantity

Since most of our products are printed in batch with fixed quantities, we do not offer quantities between the ones listed. If you need a larger quantity, please ask for a custom quote and we'll be happy to help.

Because of the printing process being used, all cards in a single set must be identical. For example, you cannot benefit the price of 500 cards for 2 different sets of 250 cards.

Spot UV

Produces a glossy effect giving the card a textured look. The spot gloss varnish is often applied over pictures or graphics to enhance them. It's also especially effective when the background is solid black and the Spot UV layer creates a shape, pattern or text. A spot UV layer over some text is also possible but less apparent and may require moving the card in the light to see the effect.

Important - Please read

Spot UV involves a separate stage in the production process, after printing and laminating. Although we make all efforts to perfectly align the spot UV to the print, a shift of up to 1/64" may occur. Most of the time the shifting will only show on a few cards. Please keep that in mind when creating the artwork. We do not recommend applying spot UV in registration with small text or fine lines.
