  • 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
