    Trap black type in spot silver background

      Can someone tell me the proper settings to trap black type to a spot (silver 877) background. Seems no matter what I do the black overprints. Thanks.

          I know this is a month late but FYI

           

          Spot silver usually run as the last colour so you need to have the silver above the black layer of the file.

          So try this...

          Top layer - Black text no stroke, set to knock out the silver.

          Mid layer - Silver

          Bottom layer - Duplicate the black text and add a stroke to give you the trapping.

           

          The black will combine in the K plate
