Spot colour, UV colour, UV coating, relief varnish & silver finish

Spot colour

In order to achieve a specific colour outside the CMYK colour range, certain products feature Pantone or HKS spot colours:

Add another colour field in the print file in your layout program and select the respective colour mode and a spot colour. Then, assign the new spot colour to the desired design elements.

We will convert spot colours into CMYK if

  • the product was ordered without spot colours or
  • spot colours are impossible with the ordered product.

UV colour

Create another colour field in the layout program and assign the respective colour to the desired design elements.

  • Swatch name: “UV”
  • Colour type: spot colour
  • Colour mode: 100 % Magenta

The share of the UV colour must not exceed 30 % of the total area.
Before exporting the print file, set all UV design elements to “Overprint”.

Please also note the information under "Data info" on the product pages in our online shop.
