A file dedicated to the Spot UV mask or foil stamp must accompany the regular design file. The mask file indicates where the spot treatment will be applied. The following are required in your mask file.
- Use 100% K (Black) to indicate where you would like the Spot UV or foil. White will indicate no UV or foil.
- If you plan to use Spot UV and a foil stamp, you must provide separate mask files.
Also keep in mind the foil stamp and Spot UV must be 1/8” apart from each other.
- For best results, please make sure that foil coverage is less than 50% of the artwork area.
- Be aware that there can be up to 1/16” shift on foil and Spot UV. To discourage undesirable results, avoid using small or fine text/fonts with foil and Spot UV.
