File Preparation

Specialty Stock Setup Instruction (inc spot white)

Metallic bling artwork instruction

For a simple Metallic Bling finish there are no special artwork requirements. With your standard PDF CMYK print ready file all colour will have the metallic bling effect - however only black will remain solid CMYK

Metallic Bling is printed on stock that already has the silver surface attached. Printing CMYK on top of this stock opens up the possibility of literally millions of different foil colours in one pass.

To achieve a solid white and mask out the silver foil, we apply a white opaque coating that acts like a normal stock giving us the ability to get solid colour along with foils. This must be set up in your artwork files or white will appear as silver.
