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.
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt.
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 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.

      What is the fastest possible turnaround?
      • The fastest possible turnaround for Spot UV Business Cards is:
      • 9 working days
      • 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 put 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.

            It was very easy to upload files of the flyers that I wanted printed. When they turned up (one day quicker than promised) I was delighted with their quality. Splendid all round:)

            use this company. avoid others Mathew Austin 23.08.2019

            I've no idea how these guys make any money; so cheap, great quality and outstanding service. I tried using local printers but was let down badly so tried this company a few years ago and never looked back. Thanks especially to Margaux and Patrick for service above and beyond the normal. Watch the bad reviews for this company, they're mostly nonsense from clowns who haven't followed simple instructions to get the best results. They are the best and the cheapest. Simples!

            Excellent- great quality Bolade Alake 23.08.2019

            Excellent- great quality, great communication and quick delivery

            Excellent A5 booklets! Nick from Nottingham 23.08.2019

            I've used Hello Print for a few years for A5 stapled booklets (16 pages). The price is great and the quality of the booklets is excellent. I wouldn't dream of using anyone else for booklets.

            Amazing customer service! Yavor Danailov 20.08.2019

            Now, I did have some trouble with the interface (it suggested I need to duplicate the order to get two different pictures front and back, while I didn't have to). However, after a quick chat with Lucy at Customers Service we cancelled the wrong order and she figured out the right set up. Absolutely amazing customer support - very patient and helpful. Cheers Lucy!

            I ordered 2500 A4 double sided flyers on behalf of the Dartington Morris Men on Thursday, finding it very easy to pay and download my artwork. Within 30 minutes Hello Print sent me an email reporting my artwork was perfect along with a review copy. On Monday morning the 2500 flyers were delivered - superb quality. Incredible service, quality and price - I could not find fault with anything.

            Stapled Booklets - small order and proofing V. F 19.08.2019

            Firstly was lowest price out there, was worried would be too good to be true. They were not. The order was proofed and when I needed to call to query something I did not have to wait ages to get through to someone. Query was resolved in 1 phone call. When order was placed, booklets arrived 1 day early much to our delight. Good quality print.

            Highly recommended. Thank you! Luke Williams 18.08.2019

            I've used Helloprint a few times now have been very impressed. They are very easy to use, have very competitive prices, quick turnarounds and most importantly, deliver a quality product. I recently had a problem with an order and was really pleased with how quickly and efficiently they were able to help me even though the error was my own. Highly recommended. Thank you!
