Cello and UV
• Foil will usually not adhere to UV ink and spot UV (if it is a requirement, needs to be tested)
• We can foil over the top of gloss and matt cello, but ensure the cello dyne level is correct for foil (discuss with your cello supplier).
• We can emboss UV, gloss cello and matt cello. If there will be matt cello on two sides, please leave job to cure for 24 hours in between putting the cello on the first and second sides, otherwise cello may lift after embossing.
• When foiling on two sides of the sheet with cello on two sides also, the foil may set off.
