    Overprinting spot colour with white text

    emjayem54 Level 1

      I have a problem which I haven't faced in many years and, basically, have forgotten the solution. I have designed a process colour job with white text on a green background but have now been asked by the printer to provide the green as a spot plate with the 'white' type coming out of it. I suppose the white 'knocks' out the green but I can't think how to do this. I have selected the type and set overprint in the colour palette but to no – yes, you've guessed it – it's now just a solid green. All suggestions very welcome – I need this urgently as the printer needs the separated PDF this morning.
