Join Claudia McCue for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding artwork: Handling bleed, trim, and glue, part of Print Production: Packaging.
Iif you're creating a flat piece, something like an 8 and a…half by 11 cell sheet, adding bleed is a pretty straightforward matter.…You just add it concentrically on all four sides.…But, when you start working in three dimensions…as we're **** here with this folding carton.…It gets a little bit more complex.…Again, you're trying to provide a margin of error.…That's what bleed is all about.…And so, to do that for a three-dimensional piece like…a folding carton, you create what's called a beveled bleed.…Now, these are not the colors that are…really going to be applied to this when we're…done but it gives me a way to show you how to create a beveled bleed.…
So, I'm going to zoom way in on this intersection, and I'm going to select…this shape and what I want to do is create a little diagonal here.…So I'm going to get my Pen tool and what we're looking for is a little plus.…So, this is a nice thing about Illustrator and Photoshop and Indesign too.…Your cursor changes…depending on what you're doing.…So if I'm out here, that little asterisk means that I'm going to start a new path.…
