Data preparation for the cutting table

Data preparation for the cutting table

It is used for cutting printed stickers, labels, boxes... - the motif is cut including the backing area, i.e. individual pieces of labels are created that are no longer connected in any way. They can then be handed out separately, or added to products, etc. For production, it is necessary to properly prepare the individual object and prepare their assembly on the sheet. The customer can prepare the assembly of the objects for production himself or order this service for production at the hourly rate of DTP work. If the assembly is not prepared according to the parameters below, the client will be notified by the production. It is not possible to start production without correctly mounted data.

Preparation of an individual object:

Leave a minimum 3mm bleed on all trimmed objects, except for trimming motifs. CMYK colour space, no PANTONE or DIRECT colours are allowed, these will be converted to CMYK with no guarantee of colour consistency.

Preparation of assembly on arch:

The maximum sheet size is 3000x2500. The size of the material to be processed must be consulted with the producer. Cutting path 1pt thick in black - 100% K. Pass marks are 4 circles 7mm diameter preferably at the corners of the document and a fifth circle approximately halfway down the long side of the document. The circles must not touch any other graphics. The clipping path and pass marks must be in two different layers in the document, named "crop" and "camera". If you require creasing in addition to cropping, the creasing path must be on another separate layer named "crease" and the order must note this.

BEWARE of multiple lines in the same place (the machine would unnecessarily cut multiple times in the same place) - so, for example, do not prepare the rectangles to be cut as separate rectangles, but make lines (cuts between rectangles) for the entire sheet size.

The result of the preparation are two files:

FILE 1 - printable: PDF v.1.3 PDF/X-1a contains custom sticker graphics + pass markers

FILE No. 2 - trimming: AI v.8 contains a cut path of stickers + pass markers
