Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Refining your dieline, part of Package Design with Illustrator.
…With the test fit of our mock-up complete, it's time to refine our dyelines.…Now, this is where we can make any fit adjustments and…add other panels, like dust and tuck flaps, to our carton.…Now, keep in mind that the converter may have…to make minor adjustments to our dyeline for production purposes.…But, by ensuring that the dyeline is as accurate as we can possibly construct…it, we're helping to speed up the…process of getting our package design into production.…So our label over there on the right is just fine as it is.…It, the test fit went perfect, but maybe…we have some concerns about the carton over here.…
So let me focus on the carton art board.…Alright.…Now the overall fit was fine, but the top flap here on the end and the bottom flap…here, these are actually glue flaps, and they're a…little bit tall for what they're going to be doing.…They actually tuck right up next to the back edge…of this particular panel, and that's going to cause a problem.…So I need to make these just a little bit shorter.…
