Hi there. I would like to get some help with a concertina that I am creating. I am creating a six sided concertina and want to know how i go about showing the folds of the concentina to the printers, without adding back lines that will be printed. I have added black lines to where I want the folds, and have added them in a new layer, calling this layer; folds, do not print, and have double clicked on the layer and deselcted print layer. I have then clicked on the non printing tick box uner attributes for each of the line folds. Is this correct?
For something like this I would add a Slug area top and bottom, and put fold lines (clearly labelled) in the slug area, but not across the actual page (unless you need die lines for scoring), and I would both make them printable and include the slug area in the PDF export.
If you need real die lines, they should be on a separate layer as you've done, but they need to be printable, and in a spot color (name it DieLines or something useful and make it an obvious color like magenta or red that contrasts withthe document), and they need to be set to overprint so they don't leave any unwanted gaps in the art.
Brilliant! Thank you very much for your help!
