    Hi Enri,

    When the RIP sends the job to the DI hopefully the special colour will be allocated as X (make sure the RIP seperates it to X).
    When you do the makeready procedure at the end before the final green tick ok it will say un-used seperations X, just tick ok. When you want to then print the special colour X just turn off the units, black, cyan, magenta and yellow and allocate the special colour X to the unit you want to print on, and just ok that the un-used seperations will be black, cyan, magenta and yellow.

    Regards.

    I would probably print the process colours first.
    If there is tight register make sure there is plenty of trap on the 5th colour.
    Make sure the paper is trimmed and good quality.

    Good luck !!

    You need to find the pantone number from Coca Cola then reference it from a pantone book, which will then give you the individual colour breakdown for the mix.
    If you don't have a pantone book but can give me the number i can give you the mix breakdown.
    Don't forget you need to create the mix from the pantone colour range and not by mixing the process (black, cyan, magenta & yellow) colours.
