How to properly create files
In order to print products with White, you will have to create one file having different features depending on the result. Let’s see how!
1. Selective white
1) CREATE A SPOT COLOUR
In case you selected “Selective white” in your order, remember to use a SPOT COLOR and name it White. This will have to be placed above the graphic design.
Remember to set up the SPOT COLOR in OVERPRINT FILL so that it will not punch the graphic design below.
3) FINAL CHECK
In order to check if the print file was properly created, go to Overprint Preview. If everything is right, you should be able to see the White Pantone mixing with the CMYK below.
2. Solid white file
In case you selected “Solid white” a white background will be printed under the CMYK for the whole the requested format.
WarningIf you do not enter the SPOT COLOR in the file, the selective white will be printed in the whole graphic design.
Always remember that your file has to comply with the following features that apply to every file:
- 1:1 scale and 5mm bleed for each side
- CMYK colour model
- High-quality PDF
- Images resolution: 300ppi
