  • Preparing Box Sheet for printing

    Hi there!
    Could anyone help me with box packaging... I mean preparing box sheet(spread) for printing?! How do I, for instance in Illustrator, prepare the file with crop marks and bleeds? Do I draw bleeds by hand all around the edges of the box sheet or what is the technique? Any tutorials? I know I should leave gluing parts colorless what else should I be aware of?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Saint and welcome to GDF.

    Can you get in touch with your printer and ask for a template for that particular box layout?

      Do you have a dieline? The bleed should just poke over the die line. Depending on how large your print is, the bleed should be anywhere between 3mm and 15mm.

      Correct - leave glue sections colourless.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        Yeah, it's looking a bit drab.

        Find a nice high-res photo of a beach on a royalty-free site. Lose the transparency, the photo doesn't need to be washed out, just find a vibrant beach scene...

        Here's a paraphrased version of an actual conversation I had with our HR department a few months back. Seriously.

        And for a beach party, I'm sure you can do better than this photo of a pier.
