How do I know what the finished product will?

A dieline serves as a blueprint that ensures the correct layout for artwork designs on your packaging. It is essential to the cutting and creasing process as it gives our machines the appropriate information to precisely cut and fold areas of your packaging.

Dielines play a crucial role in the production process of your packaging as it is the only acceptable format recognized by printers and die-cutting machines for manufacturing.

Dielines includes information such as;

  • Fold lines – lines that indicate where your packaging should be folded to construct your packaging.
  • Cut lines – lines that indicate where the die-cutting machine should cut to create your packaging
  • Bleed lines – lines that mark excess space to account for any movement of the substrate during printing.
  • Safety lines – lines that communicate to the printer to establish where important elements (such as logos and artwork) will be present on your packaging.

To apply your artwork properly to our dielines, follow our detailed step-by-step artwork & design guide.
