QUICK TIPS for your file prep:

Visit our FTP for InDesign and Illustrator template work files.
Our Xerox Iridesse Production Press prints 6 colors in a single pass, so think OUTSIDE THE BOX for your poster design with the use of Gold, Silver, White & Clear! 
Create separate layers for objects in specialty ink colors, and name your layers by the Ink color.
Use Pantone spot colors to make your effects easily identifiable, for example: PMS 871C for Gold; 
PMS 877C for Silver; 100% Cyan for White; 100% Magenta for Clear.
Layers should be arranged in your files to mimic the order in which the inks should be applied.
Be sure to package your files with fonts and links, and then zip/compress your files before uploading.
