SETTING UP SCODIX
You can continue to prepare artwork in your preferred design software. All you need is an additional separation to act as a mask for all the areas that you would like to enhance on your artwork.
It is important to make sure that this layer is identical in all respects (size, orientation, crop, position of images and text etc.) to your original CMYK artwork.
Please ensure font size is greater than 10 point for scodix foil, its not possible to do foil on fine elements.
