Join Claudia McCue for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding artwork: Handling bleed and color intersections, part of Print Production: Packaging.
You know that any time you're creating a print project where you have image or…color that goes to the edge, or to a fold, you have to accommodate that.…This becomes a little bit more complicated when you're…dealing with a three dimensional project, like a package.…So the first thing I want to do is make sure…that I know where my bleeds and trims and folds go.…I can see them, certainly.…But it'll be really helpful to have some guidelines.…So, to position them first,…I'm going to go to View, and Display Performance in High Quality Display.…
And then I can tell what's going on.…Now, I'm not going to completely build this box, but I want to show…you a couple of tricks that I think you'll find really useful.…So, for example, here, I'm going to have color that goes to…this little fold mark, but then I want it to go beyond,…I'm going to need bleed at that little fold mark, so I'm…going to zoom way in, I'm going to reach up into my horizontal ruler,…drag down a guide that's going to be a trim guide there.…But I need something that's 1 8th of an inch outside that.…
