Borders/Parallel Lines

When incorporating borders or lines running parallel to the trim into your design, it is important to ensure they are positioned correctly to avoid noticeable alignment variations if discrepancies occur during the trimming process.

Is it essential?

Borders or parallel lines in close proximity to the trim line are at risk of appearing uneven due to the nature of the trimming equipment. This may produce a discrepancy in the border/line position of around 1mm in any direction. On smaller designs we suggest removing the border, however, if it is essential it stays, please ensure there is a minimum of 5mm between the trim line and border/parallel lines.
