    Indesign make logo black for overprint etc.

      Hi Guys

       

      When using UV-varnish for a card or design, the file often needs a page with the desired UV-varnish elements in black.

       

      Is there a way to make objects like .AI-logo's placed in InDesign black, but in InDesign and without having to duplicate the original logo .AI-file and making it black?

       

      thanks

       

      Bob

          You can use Ink Manager to alias spot colors to Black, or some other spot (or any other individual CMY primaries), but it's global, so it's going to affect more than the logo if you used the same spots elsewhere. I'd personally set up a spot swatch for varnish and use that so it's on a separate plate, then use the Attributes panel to set the overprint parameters on the logo.
