    raster effects in spot color




      I produce artwork for offset printing. I have a series of CMYK packages that have been running in China, printed by various manufacturers. For better color consistency, my client has decided to change the background color from CMYK to a spot color.


      My concern is a logo device that appears on all of the packages - it has a "white" raster glow effect applied to the outside, that will now have to blend into the spot color background. How can I assure this will image correctly, even when working with plants that may not have the latest RIPs? Most of the plants accept .pdf now, but a few insist on .ai (I export to .eps for those, then save as .ai) or application files.


      App used is ID CS5. The raster effect used is "outer glow".


      Any hints or opinions will be greatly appreciated.
