Creating a layer

flash print

1:Create a "2C" layer and place the design visible in normal light.

※Please rasterize (300dpi) when the vector data is set in detail.
※"2C" should be placed below "2CF". If different, it will affect the finish.
※Font in this layer should be 60pt or larger (line width 1.5mm)
Exception 1:Please contact us if you need production in 60pt or less.
Exception 2:Same data overlapping with "CL" layer

flash print

2:Create a "2CF" layer and place the design that will be visible after the change.

Black color (BK100%) does not glow black when changed.

※Please rasterize (300dpi) when the vector data is set in detail.
※If there is black color in the data after the change of "2CF", the black part will not emit light.
 Transparent areas are recognized as black, while white areas glow white.
※Font in this layer should be 60pt or larger (line width 1.5mm)
Exception 1:Please contact us if you need production in 60pt or less.

3:Create a "CL" layer and place designs or text that you do not want affected by the stripes.

This layer is not affected by the stripes, so small logos and text will be easier to see. However, designs that overlap with this area will not be visible after the change.

※Create and display the "CL" layer even when you don't need it.
※The font in this layer is 7pt or larger.

4:Create a "T" layer and place trim marks on it.

Create and display a "T" layer even when you don't need trim marks.

5:Always display layers in the order of "T", "CL", "2CF", and "2C" from the top.

※Create only four layers (1) to (4) above, and be sure to remove the lock.
※All layer names should be in uppercase.
※Make sure to outline your fonts.
※Image placement should be embedded.

How to create a non-striped area (CL layer)

If you do not want to stripe text or other parts of the image visible in normal light, place them on a layer called "CL". The CL layer for the unstriped area will remain unchanged in both normal light and flash photography. The following explains how to create data for non-striped areas.
