FOR ART IMPOSITION TO PRODUCT FORME LAYOUT (DRAWING) OR KEYLINE SUPPLIED.
The keyline shows the outside of the product or the cut line. All creases generally fold away from you.
The keyline (forme drawing) supplied is for art to be printed on the outside or inside.
Clear sheet can have print on outside or inside to be seen from outside. If not specified, we will set this art up to be printed on the outside. Fineline embossed clear sheet prints on the inside to be seen from the outside.
If you wish to print on the inside to be seen from the inside (for example, print on inside of a binder or satchel), then a separate keyline must be supplied. (The keyline needs to be reflected in illustrator).
Bleeds for cutting and creasing. Generally, all screenprint ink can be cut through. Apply a 5mm bleed over all edges. Solid ink (no tone) generally can’t be creased through, particularly on heavier gauge materials, so print must stop 1mm either side of all crease lines. Print with tone (made up of screen print dots) can generally be creased through.
There may be exceptions to these rules. Every job is different and needs special consideration. Please let us see your art in PDF format so that we can offer advice.
Bleeds for cutting and creasing. Offset can be cut and creased through. Apply a 5mm bleed over all edges.
In general, foil stamping over screen printed material cannot be achieved.
