How to Set Up Stickers Ready for Print
Step 1) Open your artwork file in Illustrator
Step 2) Create an outline of the shape that you require to be cut out
Step 3) Position it over the top of the sticker in place
Step 4) Select the outline, and change the colour to a new spot colour. To do so, click ‘New Swatch’ and rename the Swatch either ‘Diecut’ or ‘Kisscut’ depending on your requirements (it is important that your swatch name is listed exactly as outlined with no spaces. 'Diecut' will be the only option for Rigid Advertising Boards)
Step 5) Please change the Colour Type to ‘Spot Colour’ and set the C,M,Y,K values all to 0%, and click ‘OK'
Step 6) Your shape should now appear white, right click the outline and select ‘Arrange’ > ‘Send to Back’
