How to set up a Color Foil mask file
When ordering Color Foil business cards, a Color Foil mask is required. When designing your business card, think ahead of time of what you’re going to have in foil. After the design is complete, you’re going to need to separate the foil mask from the print file. In this short tutorial, we will show you how a Color Foil mask is supposed to look like. Please note that the Color Foil masks CANNOT contain any gradients, drop shadows, or low resolution graphics. All mask files must have a white background with the desired shape filled with 100% K (black ink) ONLY. In other words, 0-0-0-100 in CMYK color format.
