There are special considerations when using a paper such as Stardream, Shine, Curious metallics, etc… When printing with these papers you want to consult with your printer early in the design stage.
The surface of this paper does not absorb ink like a conventional printing paper. The ink will sit on the surface of the paper requiring a special ink – Oxidizing or Oxybind ink.
Another consideration with the ink is any additional manufacturing processes that may be occurring. If you are planning on engraving or foil stamping over the printed area the printer will need to use wax-free ink to ensure that the engraving ink and foil adhere to the paper.
If you are using Pantone colors with the stock you will want to have your printer do an ink draw down so you can see how the color is going to look on the actual paper.
When your planning your production schedule you need to take into account the nature of the stock and allow for ample dry time. In many cases you may need to allow the printed sheets 2 to 3 days to dry/cure after printing before the next manufacturing step can take place.
