Make Your Business Cards Stand Out

Dare to be bold with our UV business card printing. This process makes key details of your design shine brighter than the rest of the business card. This is done through spot UV, a special high-gloss coating that’s applied to key areas you specify.

You can make logos, text, and other important details shiny and reflective. These are ideal for promoting high-end products and services.

What coating do you use?

You have two options: a matte or glossy cardstock. Only when the business card design has been printed on the paper material will spot UV be applied to the areas you selected.

You can’t go wrong either way but for maximum effect, go for the matte option. Our matte cardstocks pair well with the spot UV spectacular shine.

What’s the most popular business card size?

Our most popular size is 2” x 3.5”, which is also the standard business card size.

However, we do have other UV business card printing size options: 1.5" x 3.5", 1.75" x 3.5", 2" x 4", 2.125" x 3.375", and 2.5" x 2.5".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give this product a chance I've ordered these UV cards a couple of dozen times with great results. I'm assuming that the bad review posted to this site was just the result of a communications error. Printrunner has always been helpful in resolving any issues that have ever come up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Printed wrong, given the runaround. I ordered two sets of cards, both were printed wrong. I explained it to customer service who just seems to be giving me the run around. First they asked for a description of the problem, then a picture, then a series of pictures, and now wants me to mail it so they can see it. Who knew that i had to go through all of this for a mistake made by the vendor. The pictures alone make it obvious it was printed wrong.
