Cheers, will go for a Wacom Bamboo.
Is it worth paying more for the Bamboo fun would people say?
I think that has an eraser?

bamboo isnt really too good for photoshop work
its more of a consumer product than professional
would recommend going up a model

are they both wacom? id deffinatly go with wacom as the brand ive had my a4 for about 4 years now and its still going strong,hate going bck to using a mouse when im away from my desktop. good tip once you get it is to do away with your mouse and use the tablet for everything browsing etc helps you really quickly get use to it.

One says wacom on it, and the other is the bamboo which 2 posts up GG says is made, wait for it, by wacom. Does anyone read threads anymore?

spot uv on a business card, pretty or tacky?

Depends entirely on the design in my opinion.
Black spot UV letters on a black background can look incredibly cool and refined for example.

Spot UV looks great on headings, bold type and block fonts. Abosolutely pointless on 11pt or less, you'd be better off going down the raised text route (thermography). UV is also brilliant on images especially on matt/silk substraits. Really makes a difference in quality.
A lot of printers don't like doing Spot UV on business cards to both sides. I don't know why this is but they fuck up a lot. You'll often find that turnaround is way longer as well because of it.
