Coloured Foil Business Cards: Setting up your files

We require both CMYK print files and black and white mask files for each side of your coloured foil business card. Essentially the black and white mask file indicates where the layer of bright silver foil will be applied to the card stock. The CMYK print file is the ink that will be applied. When the coloured ink is applied to the foil areas it creates a brilliant coloured foil effect.

Your mask files should be set up at 100%K (black) and white. The black areas indicate the foil position. If you would like assistance setting up your mask files, feel free to contact us prior to making your purchase and we'll be happy to help.



Upload Your Coloured Foil Business Card Design

Before you upload your file, please ensure that:

• Your file is in vector format or set up at 300dpi.

• Your file is set up at the correct dimensions and includes a 1/8" bleed zone.
For example if you are ordering a 6x4" product the total artwork size should be 6.125x4.125" and this will be trimmed to 6x4". All important text should also be kept within 1/8" of the trim line.

• Your file is set up in CMYK colour mode.
RGB files will be converted to CMYK which may result in a colour shift.

• Your design has been flattened or fonts have been outlined
