How to make a digital gilding file to send to the Imprimeur du Roi?

Clear varnish file

Ideal finish to sublimate the details of a creation, it is the result of a high-tech technical process based on the adhesion of a golden film on a glue.

Digital gilding can be applied to logos or fonts.

Recommendations:

  • Minimum thread thickness: 0.5 pt
  • Minimum body character: 7 pt
  • Overlay 100% Majenta
  • Name your shade with this exact spelling dorure1
  • Do not place gilding at the level of the creasing and the cut

To simulate the exact locations where digital gilding will be applied to the four-color file, from Illustrator or Indesign, select the area and use the color swatch to define the gilding.

Exemple:

  • If gilding only = provide 1 layer of color called dorure1.
  • Ifwhite + gilding = provide 2 layers of color whose first will be named white and the second dorure1.
  • If pantone + gilding = provide 2 layers of color whose first will be named 871C (ex: gold pantone PMS code) and the second dorure.
  • If CMYK + gilding = provide 5 layers of color whose 5th will be named dorure1.

For more finishing, we offer the possibility of combining on your documents, a selective varnish, a selective 3D varnish, 1 to 4 gilding and 3D gilding to make your creations unique.

  • If white + clear varnish + gilding = provide 3 layers of color whose 1st will be named white, the second vernis and the third dorure1.
  • If CMYK + clear varnish + gold gilding + silver gilding = provide a file with 7 layers of color, the 5th of which will be named vernis the 6th named dorure1 and the 7th named dorure2..
  • If CMYK + gold gilding + silver gilding : provide a file with 6 layers of color, the 5th of which will be named dorure1 the 6th named dorure2

For information, any naming error generates a bug including capital letters instead of lowercase letters, so scrupulously respect the above nomenclature.
