Submission specifications for Spot UV Business Cards

Here you can find the customized submission specifications for Spot-UV or Foil printing.
We have customized submission specifications for Spot-UV printing. You can find them here.
Add 3 mm bleed.
To allow leeway for cutting differences in production, always add a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design. Make sure colours, background pictures and layouts extend into the bleed area so as to avoid leaving white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.
Keep 4 mm safety margin
Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.
Use CMYK as the color mode.
Prepare your files using CMYK as the color mode, not RGB. Use colormode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2) for coated papertypes and colormode FOGRA47 (PSO Uncoated ISO12647) for uncoated papertypes. If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.
Resolution of at least 300 dpi.
Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.
Convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts.
Make sure you convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts when saving it to PDF.
Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Force Color Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Color Profile > Photoshop 5 Default CMYK). Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats.
Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats (PDF (1.4 or higher), TIFF, EPS, JPG). Deliver your files in one layer: the background layer.
Use the right values for full color black.
Use Rich Black (C:63% M:52% Y:51% K:100%) for larger areas and text to get a deep black color. Do not use this value for text smaller than 15 pt or plain text. This can only be used in full color printing. For designing black smaller texts use 100% black.
Check line thickness
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.
Check your artwork on overprint.
Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint. Unless you want this effect in your design. The degree of transparency in printing depends on the ink, paper, and printing method used.
Keep 4 mm safety margin from the fold.
Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the fold.

Which materials can I choose from?
  • 400gr silk MC + matt + Spot UV: the spot UV gives an extra dimension to your business card. The glossy accents makes your design extra vivid. PLEASE NOTE: for business cards with spot UV there are different guidelines.
    What is this product exactly? And what can I use it for?
    • A business card is a card that contains your company / contact information and can be printed completely according to your wishes. It's the best way to make a lasting first impression on prospective customers / business partners.
    • This product is used to / as:
      • Introduce people to your business
    • Exchange company/contact information
      What is the fastest possible turnaround?
      • The fastest possible turnaround for Spot UV Business Cards is:
      • 9 working days
      • Note only applicable for products which require your design: To make sure that your order is delivered at the indicated time, it is important that we receive your file with your design for the product, on time (also called cut-off time). In this way the product can be moved into production on time. The deadline is always communicated in the yellow bar on the product page, above the "Add to shopping cart" button.
      • The cut-off time for your printed item may vary. This depends on the combination you choose. This has to do with the manufacturing technique and / or the order quantities.
      • NOTE: The product delivery shifts a day every time the deadline for submission has passed. This is also the case if the file is rejected by us and corrected artwork isn't supplied before the next cut off time.
        Which production techniques do you use?
        • For the production of your Spot UV Business Cards we use the following production technique(s):
        • Digital (up to 250 pieces): printed on professional HP Indigo printers, directly after your order is received. Digital printing is cheaper in lower order quantities.

        • Offset Lithography printing or Litho printing makes it possible to provide larger quantities at unbeatable prices. This technique creates images and text with wet ink and transferred to each paper sheet with aluminium and rubber plates. This method is more extensive than its 'digital’ counterpart because of the different printing materials that are used. Still, it is the most cost-effective option when you order bigger printed batches.
          Which carriers are used for the delivery?
          • For the delivery of your spot uv business cards we use multiple carriers. Because of the highest reliability, in most cases we use UPS or DPD.

            • Depending on the complexity this can take a bit longer.

            Everything is perfect. Recommended

            Great work Emil 19.09.2020

            Great work and faster than said

            Fantastic prices, quality and service SS 18.09.2020

            Ordered three large 80 x 60 prints on Forex. Service was brilliant from the start when I wasn't happy with their digital proof for one of my images. They adjusted it and reuploaded the proof and went even further to show me comparisons in Adobe Print Inspector for the colour values between my original image and their digital proof. Given a delivery date for a week later, prints turned up within three days which was a nice surprise. The quality of the prints was great. Really happy with everything.

            Absolutely 1st class in terms of ease… Gramps 18.09.2020

            Absolutely 1st class in terms of ease of use, quality and value. It was all so fast and efficient. If you want a simple online service for your printing needs I would suggest this is going to meet most needs. Well done (virtual) team.

            I was so pleased with the books Hello print printed for me. The quality was fab, very reasonably priced and prompt completion and delivery. I shall use them for all my large printing work.

            Just the best and only printers we will ever use. Gio 7.09.2020

            We've used dozens of printers over the years for our sports organisation and have always found the costing to be hard to navigate and hidden behind quotes, or the artwork process even more tedious and frustrating. Too many printers won't provide decent proofs/mockups or assist with any of the artwork being provided. Helloprint are genuinely 'spot on' in all respects. Whether it's standard printing or merchandising, there's nobody we can find who provides such a straightforward, transparent, clearly-priced process. What's more is we have found their artwork revision process to be invaluable. More than once they have revised our artwork for us to make it fit the product better, and the review process leaves no room for error. It's an absolutely fantastic service and company with very fast turnaround and excellent product quality. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

            Amazing quality, fast turnaround! Jenny Butters 7.09.2020

            Helloprint is now the go-to supplier for my small business. The quality is great every time and the items always arrive before expected. So happy to have finally found a company I can rely on! The team is always super helpful too. Thank you!

            They turned my order for a foamboard sign around in under 24 hours, arriving extremely well packaged the next morning and saving me from having to open my shop without a sign after another printer let me down. Awesome service and the price was very reasonable =) Cheers guys!

            I have used Helloprint 3 times so far to print our charity Newsletter, can't fault the service, the price or the end product.

            Great speedy service Ellen SJ Kerbey 14.08.2020

            Purchased a customised jacket, came within the two estimated weeks and looks great. Very helpful customer service too.

            Great! Hollie McKeown 14.08.2020

            I was hesitant about ordering my invites initially as I was wanting to order just a sample to see what it was going to look like however they arrived and they were brilliant! Far better than I thought they would be. They arrived 4 days before they were expected to.

            Top notch :) STEPHEN HUTCHINGS 12.08.2020

            Speedy service. The online ordering is straightforward and reassuring. Print delivered earlier than I expected and of first class quality. Will certainly use Helloprint again.

            Great Products Lauren 12.08.2020

            I have ordered a few things from hello print and everything has come out beautifully and so quickly! I was concerned when I was uploading my designs as I'm no graphic designer so I wasn't sure how it would come out, but I had nothing to worry about as they had specifications to ensure good quality printing. I will definitely be using them again!
