Our tips for your special finish cover

You can tell us which parts of the artwork to apply the special finish to using the dedicated layer on the print file. Download the Template and use it to set up your file:

  • The artwork in the Finishing layer must not contain gradients, halftone screens or transparency, must consist of vector graphics and must use the Finishing colour swatch.
  • You can make the finishes any shape you like, giving you more creative freedom.
  • We recommend using a font size of at least 10 pt and a line weight of at least 1 pt.
  • Finally, we recommend avoiding placing finishes over creases, to prevent the varnish or coating from breaking.
