About The Class

Use Illustrator to create packaging dielines efficiently. Learn the terminology used in the packaging and printing industry to understand dielines, live, trim, bleed, knockout, overprint, folds, scores, and embossing. This tutorial will show you how to set up a grid structure, create all the panels and flaps, breeze through the measurements and produce a finished package ready for the industry. As a bonus, you will see how to quickly render the final package for the client to view the finished product.
