How should I set up dielines so that they are not printed?


Question

I want to add that white lines on the project, but don't want that line to be visible on the printed element. How can I do that? Working in CMYK in Adobe CS6.

In Illustrator, keep your die lines in a separate layer. You can set that layer to non-print in the Layer Options dialog (double click on the layer).

Checking the Template box will also make it a non-print layer:

When you go to print, make sure that Visible & Printable Layers is selected for Print Layers.
