    Is there a way to see what color profile is the EPS ?

    I’ve recently sent a pdf file with an EPS logo, which needs to be printed in golden foil.. and the printer said it’s not suitable and I need to adjust the color profile.

    Now I am wondering how to do this… Do I need to convert the EPS into vector curves (with Image trace for example) ?

    This is the document info:

    Hello Mike,

    I’m not quite sure how the colour profile can be important when you need something printed in foil. It’s the colour of the foil that determines the colour anyways, no matter which profile has been applied.

    However, it is important that your image exists of only 1 colour (I usually take a spot colour). Probably your image is in a composite colour (eg. 20% C + 75% M + 10% K) and that cannot be used to foil print.
    If that’s the case you should try to convert your logo into 1 (spot)colour.

    Hope this helps ☺

    For simplicity’s sake, I make any foil art in black and white. In that case the image would be in grayscale mode. If you have Acrobat, you can save the illustration as PDF, open in Acrobat and verify — or even fix — the color space in print preview.
