Web to Print Design Template: Custom Overlay

Aleyant eDocBuilder™ web to print design template software supports the creation of a custom overlay of instructional text, borders, crop lines.  An overlay such as a border can be made part of the printed production file, or an overlay of instructional text for example can be displayed on the proof only.

There are many reasons why you might want to add a custom overlay to your web to print design templates.

  1. Education. Instruct a user about safe areas, trim lines, etc.
  2. Visual design. Provide users with a idea where holes will be punched or a postage stamp or barcode will be applied so they can avoid placing critical data in those areas.
  3. Special effects. Create intricate border effects that use irregular cut out shapes and silhouettes.

Custom overlays can be used in both form-based templates and in Interactive Designer templates.
