Hi all! I’m in need of help please.
While I was in school they didn’t teach us anything about setting up print ready files.
Anyways, I redid packaging for the company I work for - a box for one of their products. I’m told the printing company needs the file to be in vector file format, not pdf. I sent it in as an eps file but there was an issue as the fonts weren’t showing up. Figured that out on my own but now there’s another issue (which my colleague didn’t inform me about - details of any special printing). She sends me a screenshot of what they told her, “The technical dept points out that we cannot use the data to produce tools for hot foil embossing and blind embossing because the elements to be embossed are created as an image file.”
How do I go about making sure the elements that are going to be embossed are ready for print? Basically all the (gold) drops are going to be embossed with gold foil, the gold lines are foiled, the logo “Liquidimplant” and pink part of the drop logo will be embossed as well.
*colors are off but you get the gist.
