What if I want to create metallic effect? All shrink sleeves will automatically have a white background. In order to make the can show through, to create a metallic effect, you will have to create what we call a ‘knockout’.

Creating a ‘knockout’:

1. Create compound path of the item you would like to have the metallic effect.

2. Fill the compound path with the color named: Can Substrate

How to find the color named ‘Can Substrate’:

1. Go to the tool bar and click window, then click swatches

2. Look for the color labeled ‘Can Substrate’ within the swatches tab.
