    Is there a way to put a cut line around a banner or something inside versaworks..

    Normally we put them on designs we do in Illy, but when a customer sends us artwork that we don't have the font for...or a jpeg or something is there a way to print cut lines on them?

    Been using the fotoba cut lines in a pinch...but they are too thick and don't always work the way I want them to..

    Thanks!:signs101:

    are you looking for a line to cut on or a line to fold the hem along?

    If we are printing a banner with a full colour background, we normally add "margin marks" at 1" all around and cut to them, which gives us a 1" hem when we fold on the edge of the coloured background.

    if the banner has a white background, we use margin marks at 0.0" to define the edges of the banner, and use a ruler on the finishing table to add our inch for hem.

    so margin marks makes a solid line around the artwork? Does it work with multiple copies/nesting?

    Sorry I guess I could experiment, but it seems like there is no time to stop printing and fool around...good problem to have I guess

    it doesn't make a solid line, it creates corner marks in 4 corners and makes a small dash every 2 feet or so along the length of the banner

    Ok small dash that works!..

    I think I tried turning it on once and in the preview I just saw crop marks and dismissed it.

    Thanks!
