How to setup artwork for printing die-cut stickers using Metallic Inks

Preparing Artwork > Die-Cut Stickers

To setup your artwork to print Metallic Inks is very simple and straightforward.
  1. Just download the pdf template which is attached to the product which allows Metallic Printing and you are ordering. (OR you can always refer to this generic die-cut template)
  2. Open the PDF in Adobe Illustrator CS.
  3. Open the Swatch Library (Window->Swatches) and you will see the 12 metallic colors which you can apply to your artwork.
  4. Draw the cut contour line and change the stroke color to CutContour (pink color), so that the digital cutter can recognize the die line and will cut accurately.
