Artwork

  • Avoid using Foiling on small text. Fine fonts, particularly those with Serifs or tapered lines do not produce good results. The thinnest part of the font must be 1mm in width.
  • Vectors only for Foil Blocking - Foil Blocked elements must be supplied in vector format; any text shapes to be spot-varnished must be converted to paths/outlines.
 
  • Creating the foil swatch in InDesign/Illustrator

    1. Create a New Colour Swatch in InDesign.
    2. Name the swatch 'OPULEAF-SILVER' for silver or  'OPULEAF-GOLD' for gold (must be exact)
    3. Set Colour Type to Spot
    4. Set Colour Mode to CMYK
    5. Colour Make-up is 14% Cyan & 9% Magenta for Silver and Make-up is 40% Magenta & 93% Yellow for Gold
    6. Set swatch to Overprint (Window > Output > Attributes)

Design with a little tolerance for mis-registration

Foil stamping or blocking is a process where a solid area of the paper has a silver or gold metallic foil applied by heat and pressure This means that the  registration with print can vary by ±1 mm. This means you should expect the Foiled element to move around the page by up to ±1mm. If you are aiming to cover a printed shape having a hard edge, then the Embossed area should overlap the printed edge by 1 mm to allow for any inherent variations in registration.
