Coating for certain objects on prints

How do I ensure that only certain objects in my file get a glossy coating layer while printing? Read all about in on this page!

Note: The order option for coating specific objects is not available by default, so make sure to add a comment with your order that you have submitted a file with coating layer for specific objects. The submitting of the files requires some knowledge of Adobe.

Below you will find a brief step-by-step plan on how to create a special layer in Adobe Illustrator or InDesign, so that only certain objects in your file get a glossy coating layer:

1. Select New Swatch.

2. At Swatch name, enter ‘Clear’ (note that the first letter is capitalized!).

3. At Color Type you choose Spot Color.

4. Choose a striking color, such as Cyan, and move it fully to the right (100%).

   

5. Mask the objects or areas (for example with the Pen or Curvature tool) that you want to give a glossy coating. Do this with the Clear color you just created. Make sure Overprint fill is checked at Attributes if you have selected the mask!

6. Save your file as PDF/X-4.

    Je kent het wel: werk aan de weg. Je rijdt altijd dezelfde route, maar elke dag net weer even anders. Op maandag wordt je omgeleid via de vluchtstrook, op dinsdag via de andere weghelft en aan einde van de week via de ventweg. 3 maanden later liggen er 3 nieuwe rijstroken zonder dat je hebt moeten omrijden. Dit is wat er bij Printenbind.nl ook te gebeuren staat.

    Nu de winkels open mogen op afspraak en het hopelijk niet lang meer duurt dat de horeca haar terrassen mag openen, vond Printenbind.nl het tijd voor een winactie die deze bedrijven ten goede komt. Horecaondernemers en winkeliers hebben het zwaar en wij willen hen een hart onder de riem steken.

    I really like their quickness and clearness of the website. Haven't used them for very complex printing cues, but I have asked them to print on cardboard and am very pleased with the result!
