  • Perforation in pricetags

    I'm working on some price tags designed in Quark. How do I indicate a round perforation (1/4")? Should I just draw a circle with a thickness of 1pt and tell the printer that that will be a perforation or is there another way of doing it?

    This is something that you definitely want to talk to your printer about beforehand.

      Yeah, I agree with Kool. Your printer would probably have other ideas too.

      You can also surppress printout: Suppress setting (Item → Modify) for each item on that layer

      However, it sounds like theyll have to make a die to cut your print with so the best way would be to create a template in quark or illustrator or freehand or whatever indicating the shape.

        Sorry for the late reply, this site seems to crash on me a lot. Thanks for the feedback! I'll take them into account.
        Not sure what you mean by the last line. As in, it's that bad?

        I'd pick the second one since the typography is a bit more distinctive and logo-like. However, I'd add a tail to the two d's -- ones like the a's have.
