Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Checking your color separations, part of Illustrator: Package Design.
…Once you've finalized your design and checked…it against the cutting die for fit.…You're ready to submit it to be printed,…and converted into a carton or other package type.…Now, in this chapter, I will cover that process.…First, we're going to check the colors in the design…to ensure they will come out the way we intend.…Then, I will show you how to export some of the more commonly requested file types.…And I will also discuss some methods for getting…those files into the hands of the print professionals.…So first up is checking our design for color.…
Now, over this whole course of design here, I have added…swatches and added even more swatches, incorporated artwork from other sources.…And so my swatch panel over here is getting rather…busy, and there's a lot of these swatches that I…don't really even use in the artwork itself So my…first step is to just simply clean up the Swatches panel.…Now to do this I'm going to go to…the upper righthand corner of the Swatches panel.…
I'm going to click on this Panel Menu, and I'm going to choose this option.…
