How do I setup artwork for Foil Stamped product?
Foil job files are set up exactly like our Spot UV job files.
All black parts must be solid 100% K with no added colors.
But remember, Foil and UV coating don’t overlap, both must be at least 1/16″ apart to avoid the foil to peel off.
Also, do not use small or fine text or lines for foil objects. For good results, make sure your foil coverage is less than 50% of the entire side of print.
Furthermore, note that there might be up to a 1/16″ shift on the location of the foil.
Remember this if you try to align foil with any other printed artwork on your card.
For best quality, mask files created in vector-based programs like CorelDRAW and Illustrator is recommended.
