Artwork Setup

ARTWORK SET-UP REQUIREMENTS

Please ensure your artwork is set and saved to the below requirements.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:

  1. Always save your artwork as a 'PRESS QUALITY' PDF
  2. Include 3mm BLEED on all sides. If you have colour or images that run off the edges, this needs to fill the bleed area.
  3. The design you would like foiled must sit on a seperate page and be 'Page 1' within the PDF.  'Page 2' should be the artwork you would like the foil or varnish placed on. (See below)
  4. The artwork you would like foiled or varnished must be a 100% Magenta in colour. (See below)
  5. Finally, please keep your foil/varnish artwork 3mm inside the final trim area. The Spot Varnish is the only finish which can run straight off the edge of the card.
  6. Convert all text to outlines. This will prevent any font going missing through the process.

THINGS TO AVOID:

  • Foil and Varnish can sometimes shift slightly when applied. Avoid applying these finishes to thin lines, small text or finely detailed artwork.
