  • Clipping mask

    Im sure this is one of the easiest techniques in Illustrator. But what I would like to know is the easiest way to clip out the logo from the buisness card design. The dotted lines are the cards boundarys.
    Thanks

    Are you talking about the watermark image in the background and you just want the edges that go outside the dotted line clipped out?

    Easy. Draw a box to the size of the card (the dotted line), make sure it has a stroke only (no fill). Then select the box and the logo go under OBJECT/CLIPPING MASK and select MAKE.
    Just keep in mind the box draw has to be on the top layer and of course aligned properly.

    Is that what you meant?

      Yes thats what I ment. I wasnt selecting both the box and the watermark, just the box.

      Thanks for that.

        Shortcut, after you've selected both the box and the card, press CTRL/COMND-7.

        You can actually use a box with a fill, but you're just unable to see what's beneath the fill until you've made the clipping path.

          I wouldn't show sketches. You're demonstrating your propensity to give away your work for free, without any sort of contract or agreement to terms. It's a bad precedent and it makes it more likely in...

          It took me a few seconds, but instead of AMP D, it says AMPED. It's clever making an electrical plug from the E and D. The abbreviation "amp' has a bunch of definitions, like amplifier or ampere....

          It's been my experience that when clients see rough sketches, they are typically unable to envision a sketch becoming a finished product. They also see it as unfinished and seem to feel an urge to want...

          Are those printed in CMYK? If your press is restricted to four colors, you're just not going to get realistic images without CMYK separations. And there's no sure-fire way of easily combining the colors...
