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. Exclusive finishes need to be within the safety margin
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.

      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 final step when putting your product together and in the box on the right which details your entire order.
      • 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.

            So speedy, wish I knew about them sooner! Hannah 11.05.2021

            After previously hand-making the RSVPs for my wedding, which was a) surprisingly expensive and b) very time consuming, my fiancé and I decided to take the plunge and pay for our finalised wedding invites to be printed professionally to save us the time, now that we're both very busy with work and other wedding planning stuff. Came across HelloPrint's website at the weekend and after a few last minute alterations we submitted our final designs on Sunday evening - were sent a digital proof by Monday morning which we confirmed we were happy with, and the finished product (100 cards ordered with envelopes) arrived on our doorstep Tuesday afternoon (today). Absolutely delighted with how well the cards came out, blown away by how fast they arrived (didn't even pay for a rush order - this was a standard delivery!), and very happy with how cheap it was to do (around £40, we spent more on that on ink cartridges making our RSVPs last time!). Highly recommend this company!

            Good value, easy and speedy service, great quality Ayesha Mahomed 4.05.2021

            I ordered some business compliments cards from Helloprint. I love how easy it is to select a design and place an order. I ordered a large quantity and the price was very competitive. The turnaround time was less than 24h and I received my order within 2 days. The quality was excellent. I’ve used helloprint before and they have not disappointed. I will definitely use them again for my business supplies.

            Good quality and fast service for a reasonable price. Charlie Stroud 3.05.2021

            I was sceptical about using Helloprint as I hadn’t heard of them before using them. You approve the design before it’s produced and it arrived very fast. Good quality and fast service for a reasonable price.

            Definitely recommend Suzanne Hetherington 1.05.2021

            Efficient, high quality, excellent and responsive customer service.

            I’m doing and event this weekend and had to get some marketing material printed ASAP. It took two working days to get my banners from ordering to delivery and they look amazing! Thank you very much for making my life easier :)

            I ordered a flag as a gift for my parents small business. It was so easy to custom design the flag, upload the logo and complete the purchase. Even though I chose standard delivery, the flag arrived in less than 5 days and is already flying proudly. The quality is also high, I was worried the logo might distort as it was enlarged but it’s been completed perfectly.

            Very satisfied customer TL 22.04.2021

            I have used Helloprint three times now to print my wrapping paper designs, and I have always been extremely happy with the excellent service. The order is always fulfilled sooner than the estimated time, and the quality is of the highest.

            Helloprint - Fantastic service! teresa sillars 21.04.2021

            5 star review! The on line support was incredibly helpful in tweaking our logo to suit! He was a pleasure to talk to. The product arrived much quicker than expected. Won't be going anywhere else for my printing from now on!

            Outstanding service again Sally 12.04.2021

            Although I use Helloprint all the time my latest order was something very different and it was nicer than I expected! I am thrilled with it all.
