File preping in prepress --[Louis.05]

Like Chris, I was interested in learning how foils and varnish effects are represented in the digital file. Sometimes, not only does that spot colours need to follow its apparent naming convention in the swatch, I was asked by the printers to add another layer that clearly indicates the exact spot for post-print treatments.

And I'm also interested to find out, if the more expensive, durable options like UV varnish really stack up for its price? The printers informed me that it prevents Colour fading in an outdoor environment, but Machine varnish seemed to endure just fine.
