Technical Specifications for Foil Flyers
Foil Flyers Artwork Specification:
If you are printing a one-sided document, then a 2-page PDF is required:
Page 1 is the CMYK artwork and page 2 is the Foil artwork.
If you are printing a double-sided document, with foil, please submit a 4-page PDF:
Page 1 is the front of the artwork
Page 2 is the back of the artwork
Page 3 is the Foil artwork for the front
Page 4 is blank.
The Foil artwork should contain solid black shapes in the exact position where the Foil is required. Please ensure Foil artwork is 100% black only and does not contain any cyan, magenta or yellow. We advise that Foil artwork is supplied as vector to ensure the best result.
Please note: Foil application has registration tolerances of approximately ±0.5 mm. It is not therefore recommended that small text (10pt minimum) or thin lines (1pt minimum) are foiled as perfect register cannot be guaranteed.

- Outline or embed fonts
- 300dpi resolution
