Let's take a look at how a dieline becomes a die, and then that die creates a carton.…So here's a fairly simple dieline.…It's something called a Reverse Tuck, and that's because the top…flap and the bottom flap are on opposite sides of the Carton.…And the solid lines indicate the cuts.…And the dash lines indicate the folds. And then there's also a window cutout.…There's going to be a hole cut in the Carton, and…then clear plastic will be glued to the back of that.…And that'll let the consumer see the product inside the package.…This is the die that's created based on that dieline.…
Now, these are creasing rules, and what they'll do is press into the paperboard…they don't cut it, but they press it so that it will fold neatly.…And then this is the cutting edge.…You can see where it's cutting that top tab,…and there's the other side of that cutting edge.…And here's the little cutout that's going to provide a little opening in…the Carton.…The glass scene is going to be glued on the back.…And then the customer can see the product inside.…
