Add a special finish
Add a spot color swatch (100% Black) for all the elements you like to be printed with Spot on varnish. Give this swatch a logical name. (for example: ‘Spot on’).
We don't need a separate PDF file for the special finishing parts.
1 PDF file = CMYK + Spot Color (100% black) = CMYK + 'Spot on' finish
Make sure all your special finish design elements are vector elements set to “Overprint fill”. This way you make sure that your CMYK design also fills the space behind your special finish design elements, so you won’t see white marks or lines.
Before exporting files:
Remove all objects from the artboard that are not intended to be printed, including any extra swatches, links or extra objects. Your artwork should be in CMYK color mode. Images should be at least 200 dpi (we prefer 300 dpi). Delete the guidelines layer if you used a template.
Extend the background of your design to fill the full “bleed area”. This way you don’t end up with white edges when your business cards are trimmed.
Keep all the important stuff for your design (like the text, logo, graphic elements, etc.) inside this area. Don’t add your background – that still needs to run to the edges of the “bleed area”.
This will be the actual size of your business card.
