How to set up akuafoil file

With Akuafoil, you can turn a wide range of CMYK colors into multi-colored foils. Akuafoil uses a special processed foil system that is applied under a 4/c process to create an array of foil colors. It's simple, affordable, and makes your prints stand out from the crowd.

For an Akuafoil job, you must include an Akuafoil mask file along with your CMYK file. The mask file indicates where the Akuafoil will be applied. The file setup is the same as Spot UV. Use 100% K where Akuafoil needs to be applied and white where the Akuafoil is not applied.

If you would like plain silver Akuafoil to print, make sure to have at least 15% K in the CMYK print file area in order to obtain the highest quality silver Akuafoil effect.

Additional akuafoil information

Here are some more things to keep in mind when creating your Akuafoil artwork:
Make sure the mask and CMYK print file are aligned. They should match exactly in size and position.

Akuafoil works best on lighter colors. The darker the CMYK color, the less vibrant the Akuafoil effect.
Do not use very thin or small text and artwork with Akuafoil. Use San Serif fonts above 12 point for best results.
If you have Akuafoil applied to a white area, it will have a plain silver Akuafoil look.
For better quality we recommend creating mask files in vector based programs such as Illustrator or CorelDRAW.
