Templates are cutting and folding patterns for making package art in the correct dimensions. The edge or "die line" of a template is the cutting edge. Dotted lines in a template mean a fold. We have put crop marks and indications of how far art should "bleed" over the cutting edge into our basic templates. For paper and cardboard pieces, art must bleed by 1/8" over each cutting edge. (Note: Do not put a bleed on art directly printing to the face of the CD or cassette.) If you are finishing the art for printing, the cut and fold lines need to be removed from inside the printed art areas. Just leave the lines embedded in the art, but make them invisible by making them "no width," or place them in a "template-only" layer. Our cutters will cut using the "registration marks" and "crop marks" on the corners of the art.
