Yes, you certainly can.
It's the same price as White ink.
When placing your order, make sure to select the White Ink product.
Please write a note in the comments section to let us know that it will be printed in CMYK + White, so we know what to look out for in your artwork.
It’s also helpful if you provide an extra page in your artwork PDF as a mock up, so we can see what you're trying to achieve.
So, here's how you do it...
Most importantly, what you want to be printed in white ink, MUST be defined as a Spot Colour. This is how the printer knows what it needs to use white ink vs CMYK ink for. (For Canva users, skip to the bottom for your special instructions)
Create a new spot colour in your swatches panel.
It MUST be named SpotColor_White – spelled exactly that way (even though it’s not the right way we spell it – I know, it irks me too!).
- Make it 100% Magenta only (C= 0 / M= 100 / Y= 0 / K= 0)
- Double check that the color type is definitely set to “Spot Color” & not “Process Color” which is usually the default.
Here's what it will look like in Adobe Illustrator:
And in Adobe InDesign:
The rest of your artwork should remain in CMYK in the colour(s) that you would like it to be printed in.
For more in depth instructions about white ink underlays please refer to our Artwork Guidelines.
For Canva Users
If you’re using Canva (which can’t create spot colours) make a hex colour for the parts of your design to be printed in white ink. Type this hex code into the document colors search.
The colour is a magenta pink, but don't worry, it won't print like this!
