We have recently opened a new sweet shop – Secret Sweet Shack & we needed roughly around 4,000 leaflets printed. After searching relentlessly & getting quotes of £200+ I was so pleased to be offered 4,000 for just £125 from Avenue Printing. Such a bargain & you wouldn’t be able to tell that from the quality of the leaflets at all! I liased with Jonathan & I honestly could not fault Avenue Printing for a second – very responsive and helpful, super lovely & were absolutely bang on our deadline. We will definitely be returning for our next batch. Thank you so much Avenue Printing!!!

Frequently Asked Questions


Spot UV printing is an ideal print finish if you’re looking to create something unique and dynamic for your customers or clients. Spot UV printing is designed to grab attention, highlight important information and encourage customer engagement with your printed product. For these reasons, design will be an important factor when opting for a spot UV finish. If you haven’t decided on your design yet, we can recommend plenty of freelance artists and designers that work with our clients to help finetune or create their designs. 

Order Size

As spot UV printing can be quite expensive, you’re going to want to use it for items that aren’t going to be chucked in the bin after one use. For example, distributing flyers with a spot-UV finish would be highly costly and might not offer a very high return on investment. However, for long-use items such as catalogues and brochures, or sentimental items such as cards or invitations, spot UV printing can add value and even render your items more durable and long-lasting.

As spot UV printing will increase the cost of any print order, it’s highly recommended that you use this finish on items that offer a bit of longevity. Here are some of the most common items that work well with a spot UV finish: 


If you’re going to be sending out brochures to potential customers, it’s vital that you make a good impression if you want to land those all-important sales. Using spot UV on a brochure cover – for example, to highlight your logo or brand slogan – is a great way to add a bit of prestige and luxury to the final finish. Read more about our brochure printing, or brochure printing costs here. 

Business Cards

If you want to print your own business cards, don’t simply opt for the cheapest option. You’re going to want a card that ends up on someone’s fridge or in the their wallet, not in the wastepaper basket. Spot UV printing is a great way to demonstrate via your business card that you’re creative, professional, and take your job seriously. 

Programme Printing

If your company conference is coming up and you want to make a great impression on shareholders, clients or customers, having a sleek and elegant programme is a great place to start. You can use spot UV printing to emphasise your brand logo, or simply create an innovative design unique to the conference. Read more about our programme printing here. 

Notebook Printing 

Notebooks make great corporate gifts or fun additions to a “new employee” welcome pack. If you want to foster a professional and innovative image of your business or organisation, customised notebooks with a spot UV finish wouldn’t be a bad place to start.

Avenue Printing have always been incredibly helpful, with a very quick response rate and excellent customer service. I have been using Avenue for a long time, and they have always provided a wonderful service from start to finish, consistently delivering high quality printed items. Jonathan in particular is great to work with, and I look forward to continue working with him in the future. I would highly recommend Avenue!

What other kinds of special printing services can we offer?

If you’re looking for some other creative finishes to make your printed products pop and stand out from the competition, we offer a range of special printing services. Here are some of our most popular creative finishes:

Foil Printing

Foil printing is one of the easiest ways to take an invitation or business card from regular to wow! Customers and potential clients will think twice about chucking a pretty, foil-trimmed business card, and invitations made with foil print make for lovely keepsakes and mementoes. 

Find out more about foil printing here.

Special Ink

If your printed items need some vibrancy or you simply want the boldest, brightest colours for your promotional items, we’d recommend using special ink. While our normal ink is still top-notch, special ink offers that extra vibrancy that really helps colourful prints make an unforgettable impression.

Find out more about special ink printing here. 

Die Cutting

Another easy way to show off your organisation’s commitment to innovation is by using a die-cut finish on your promotional products. Die-cutting (which involves cutting fun shapes, holes or gaps into your printed products) is available for the majority of our printed products.

You can find more info about die-cutting printing here.
