Spot UV Leaflet and Flyer Printing in Staffordshire

Whether you’re a new business looking to promote your opening or an established brand looking to showcase your services, events or products, catching the attention of new and existing customers can be a challenge. One way to completely stand out from the rest is with spot UV leaflets and flyers which incorporate a unique glossy texture to elements of your design, bringing attention to important pieces of information like your logo or brand name.

Considered one of our most luxurious finishes, Spot UV is a clear-cut way to secure your place as one of the best in your field. While everyone’s conventional, plain leaflets are left on the door mat, the shiny and textured surface of your Spot UV leaflet will instantly catch attention and portray the very experience and flair your business is capable of.

We print our Spot UV flyers on high-quality 350gsm silk stock with matte lamination and a choice of Premium or Luxury Spot UV. You can choose to have your them single or double-sided with premium or luxury spot UV finish on one or both sides. We also offer a wide range of sizes including A4, A5, A6 and DL so no matter what style of promotion you are looking for, we have something for you.

What are Spot UV Leaflets?

Our Spot UV leaflet printing service is almost exactly the same as our standard leaflets, available in all popular sizes including A4, A5, A6 and DL, but they include a unique coating on certain elements of the design for a unique, eye-catching finish. The UV coating is only applied to specific areas, commonly parts of the design you want people to notice and it is a fantastic way of adding a luxurious quality finish to your promotional flyer without breaking the budget.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Premium and Luxury Spot UV?

We offer two types of Spot UV leaflet designs: Premium and Luxury. The difference between them is the thickness of the UV coating used. Our Premium UV is 14 microns thick while our Luxury Spot UV finish is 43 microns thick. Your choice depends on how raised you want the elements on your leaflet to be and how much of a dramatic finish you prefer, both will help your design c

What can Spot UV leaflets or flyers be used for?

Our spot UV printing leaflets are fantastic marketing tools for advertising your business. Whether you’re having a sale, hosting an event, or offering customers incentivised vouchers and coupons, you can effectively showcase your message with our unique, glossy finish leaflets. Depending on the size you pick, you can hand them out on the street, post them through letter boxes or include them with customer’s orders.

How should I design my Spot UV Leaflets?

As with any marketing tool, you want to make sure you make a lasting impression! Read on to make sure your artwork is set up correctly! The design of your Spot UV leaflet is incredibly important. One of the key things to be aware of is the amount of UV coating you are using. You should never go full coverage as it really doesn’t look good, but instead, focus on which elements of your design you want to stand out. We recommend aiming for about 30% maximum coverage as this will make your artwork really attention-grabbing.

Spot UV layers can work well on text, images, and graphic shapes, but we wouldn’t recommend going too small with the text as the quality can look poor. One of the best ways to get the perfect design is to use the Spot UV layer to add high-impact depth to your logo or brand name so it is easy for customers to remember you or use it on contrasting colours so that one particular shade stands out over the other. This is a great finishing technique, creating a striking effect and special finish.

As with all artwork for any print orders, with spot UV artwork there should be a minimum of 3mm bleed. When you are adding spot UV varnish we would recommend a 5mm safe area, e.g. for booklets we would recommend 5mm clear at the bounding edge. All fonts within the artwork should be converted to outlines and imagery should be a minimum of 300dpi to ensure a great finish.

You should supply the elements that you would like to use spot uv on as a separate file in a single colour such as magenta or black. 

When you upload your design we use our proofing tools to ensure that everything is as it should be before moving your order into our print production queue.

Can you design my Spot UV Leaflets for me?

Yes, we would love to! We know designing gloss varnish leaflets for your business isn’t always easy and we are sure there are better things you want to spend your time on. Instead, save yourself the hassle and send your brief to our team so we can review it and reply with a quote for the work. We do advise that you give us as much information as possible about your spot UV design so we can quote you accurately.

At Print Stafford, we pride ourselves on printing raised Spot UV printing to a high standard for many local businesses in Stafford, Cannock, Penkridge, Uttoxeter, Stone, Stoke on Trent and throughout the Midlands. We also have many clients nationwide who benefit from the free delivery and competitive prices we offer on all our quality printed leaflets.

What other products do you offer your spot UV coating on?

We offer our spot gloss finish on our perfect bound booklets and brochures, as well as our business cards and presentation folders. Any product that we offer that has a minimum thickness of 250gsm! This is needed as we need to be able to apply either matt lamination or soft touch laminate for the printing process. Spot UV is applied with the same techniques as our foil embellishments.
