A dieline template is a PDF file that shows the flat layout of your box, and helps you place design elements on different panels of the box.

If you like to design your box offline using your favorite tool like Adobe Illustrator, place your order first so we can create it and we will send you a PDF dieline template.

Based on your box design indicated specs, a file with the dieline is created and adds the following lines to ensure all details in your artwork are printed during production:

Bleed lines mark the edge of the material. Your background color or art should extend beyond these lines, otherwise what is past the bleed lines would not be printed.

Trim lines are placed 1/8" from the artwork and text to prevent cutting off any important details during printing.

Crease lines are added at least 1/8" from the most crucial artwork portions. This prevents the areas behind the lines from being on the fold line after printing.

You can check if the dieline file includes all the necessary colors and details within the lines indicated above. See the image below for reference on what is printed within the lines:
