Spot UV Creates Depth on an All-Black Design
This business card features an all-black design on textured paper. In order to show the logo and text, spot UV technique is used. The effect involves coating certain parts of the card with a glossy finish. Once treated under UV light, these parts become more prominent with their distinct shine.
In this case, the saw and the contact information show spot UV effect. Because spot UV can be customized, it allowed for precise detailing on the parts without the glossy finish, such as the company name.
