Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting artwork to fit a dieline, part of Package Design with Illustrator.
…With the die maker's CAD file now incorporated into my artwork…and then adjusted so that it doesn't interfere with my artwork.…It's time to see if there's any adjustments that need to be made…to my design so that it more readily fits the die line structure.…So, let's have a look here.…Now I can see a couple of things right off the bat.…These panels here, these top dust flaps, and then the ones one the bottom.…Well, I can see that the artwork stops right at the edge of…that dust flat, and so, I'm going to need to adjust the bleed there.…
I'm going to have to add a little extra bleed on those.…I'm sure that the printer would certainly appreciate me…trimming this area here in the top right hand corner.…This panel is a little more tapered than what I had it.…So maybe I'll adjust the bleed in that area.…And if I zoom in a little closer here,…I can see that, well this panel.…This face panel is actually a little bit taller than it was when I drew it, so I…need to adjust this green art work here, so…that it doesn't show up on the face panel.…
