I'm creating the surface graphics for a box/package cut-out and it will require multiple trim marks. I could make individual trim marks for the box but their would be over 30 edges. Could there be a script out there that would make it easier?
Thank you in advance!
What about a dieline (set) on its own layer, not to be printed but used as the template(s) for die cutting?
You should be able to get the exact requirements from the (die cutting) company in question.
You may read up on dieline and die cutting before you call anyone so you known more and get to know more.
Like Jakob says. They are sometimes called keylines.
You can colour it with a homemade spot colour that you name Die or Key (the latter being slightly less mortal) and set it to overprint.
That way it won't interfere with the rest of the artwork.
As suggsted above there are no trim marks in packaging their there is a dieline or a keyline depending on who you are dealing with they are the same except the dieline usually is .125 points and is black and has a specific name and is on its own layer.
There are however fold marks which look like trim marks except they are dash lines but they can just as well be key lines.
