I am doing press project that needs to be mass produced soon. The Metallic Green 7870C is only available at this print shop. I have gradient artwork and using tint, working in AI CS6. If I use different Pantone colour as 'template' to make the black film, will it work? Will the tint and gradient affect much if different colour?
Edited: I make this packaging design with 2 colours: Black and Pantone Metallic Green 7870C. The print shop, who will mass produce this, have the metallic colour, but I don't. They need the colour separation file to make the film.
Because I don't have the Pantone code (Metallic Green), I used Metalic Silver colour as a guide and proceed to colour separation.
The template result looks similar to what we want, but I want to make sure, if we use that film as a template for other Pantone colour, will it affect to the artwork's gradient?
