BOOKMARKS - Akuafoil
To see all available options, please enter all shipping address details.
Bookmarks are perfect for establishing brand retention since these are both functional and useful at the same time. Having your brand
printed on either front or both sides, these can capture the attention of readers. The good thing about bookmark printing is that they
can have more than one purpose. Other bookmarks contain calendars, coupons, discounts and even quotations. These also serve as event
tickets and giveaways.

Radiance never seen before – dazzle you can afford! Akuafoil gives
you a wide range of CMYK colors with a sparkling foil finish and an ideal reflection that is priced to give you a true competitive
advantage. State-of-the-art features allow you to produce large solid areas as well as reversed out areas of foil. You can produce
foiled half tones, gradients and have multiple colors in foil on the same design. The design possibilities are limited only by your
imagination, giving you an exquisite edge.
With Akuafoil, you can turn a wide range of CMYK colors into multi-colored foils. Akuafoil uses a special processed foil system that
is applied under a four color process to create an array of foil colors. It's simple, affordable, and makes your prints stand out from
Akuafoil set up
For an Akuafoil job, you must include an Akuafoil mask file along with your CMYK file. The mask file indicates where the Akuafoil
will be applied. The file setup is the same as Spot UV. Use 100% K where Akuafoil needs to be applied and white where the Akuafoil
is not applied.
As shown above, the file on the left is the normal CMYK print file. If you want the logo to be Akuafoil, then your Akuafoil mask file
should look like the file on the right. The white indicates no Akuafoil and black 100% K indicates where the Akuafoil will be applied.
When uploading, please remember to upload separate files.
Here are few things to keep in mind when creating your Akuafoil artwork:
Make sure the mask and CMYK print file are aligned. They should match exactly in size and position.
Akuafoil works best on lighter colors. The darker the CMYK color, the less vibrant the Akuafoil effect.
Do not use very thin or small text and artwork with Akuafoil. Use San Serif fonts above 12 point for best results.
If you have Akuafoil applied to a white area, it will have a plain silver Akuafoil look.
For better quality we recommend creating mask files in vector based programs such as Illustrator or CorelDRAW.
If you would like plain silver Akuafoil to print, make sure to have at least 15% K in the CMYK print file area in order to obtain
the highest quality silver Akuafoil effect.

Versatile & special
Personalized bookmarks offer plenty of crowd-pleasing options for personal or professional use. Tucking a bookmark into a novel or
notebook adds the finishing touch to a special gift or keepsake. Teachers or librarians can use them as special rewards for younger
readers. Custom bookmarks also make thoughtful keepsakes at a celebration of life or memorial service, a simple reminder of the loved
one who will be honored for years to come. And if your business is promoting an upcoming sale or book release, custom bookmarks can
help get the word out.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I create bookmarks for special events – weddings, birthdays or something else?
Yes. You can upload any designs you’d like – bookmarks are a popular custom favor for special events.
How can personalized bookmarks help me and my business?
Bookmarks are especially strong marketing options for businesses or organizations with a literary focus – bookshops, libraries, schools and more – but can help boost business for other businesses, too. They’re easy to use and reuse, book after book – which means your business information could be visible for years at a time. If you know your audience includes people who like to read, they’re a budget-friendly option to consider – you can keep a stack of bookmarks on your shop countertop or give one away with every purchase.
What information should I include on custom business bookmarks?
We recommend you keep your message simple and clear – keeping the front of your design focused on your business name, logo and a key piece of information – your address, phone number or website URL. With our 2-sided design options, you’ll have plenty of room to include extra information on the back – upcoming event lists, customer testimonials or a special offer.

You cannot write or print on UV (Ultra Violet) coated stocks, and we do not guarantee that you will be able to write on aqueous
coated stocks. UV coating gives a higher level of glossiness than aqueous gloss coating. Aqueous satin is a popular compromise between
gloss and matte, offers a pleasing sheen and good sheet protection. UV coating is more durable, scratch-resistant and provides better
protection against moisture, dirt, and chemicals.
Spot UV set up: When creating a Spot UV job, you must include a Spot UV template file along with the regular
print file. The Spot UV template file is used to show where the UV coating needs to be applied. For better quality we recommend creating
mask files in vector based programs such as Illustrator or CorelDraw.
Please only use solid 100% K to indicate where you would like the UV. Do not use shadows, glows or gray scale images. White will indicate
no UV. Remember, if it's white, you can write!
