packaging is not my thing, i suggest you ask a graphic designer or someone with heavy graphic knowledge or somneone who uses fonts and stuff...
Nairn...do oyu have the actual size of the pill this is going on?? or its shape??
or are you creating all of that as well??
this will super speed the development or design process of the spec for you.
Good point. I don't actually!
I was planning on getting it at some point, but I'm assuming (**DANGER**) that it'll be the size of an average pill.
Which is to say, I don't know.
i created you a very quick mock up spec in CS2 illy and i suggest you use it and tweak it to fit your needs. all the relevant info regarding embossing is already on the spec, find out the size of the pill b4 you send out the spec as the mold charges will cost your client a lot. so make sure you do it right the first time so as any revisions will be less and thus the client will love you more for that in terms of keeping the costs down.
again let me know if you need anymore help with this..since its fun for me.
nairn i "zipped" the ai file and re-sent it...so check your email for the spec file.
Nairn is making W
i totally meant E
Nairn, i just noticed i never click on send...opps!!
so check your mail...now!!
My God, epill - you made that shit look good! Now it almost looks like I know what I'm doing!
That's the single-greatest bit of effort I've ever received from someone on NT - I thank you from the bottom of my [cold, dark] heart!
nice!!! enjoy it!!! and thanks!!! im glad that i was the first of the single greatest anything you have received on NT!!
but remember to try to get that exact size and thickness of the pill from either the supplier or the client as it will determine the amount of embossing depth...since i did a 4mm thickness you can still have room inside where the embossing can be on both sides...if the pill is any thinner only emboss on 1 side. and perhaps just a thin engraved line on the other side. also remember to adjust the sketch so that you show a 200% detail for reference only of not just the embossing art, but of the specs, as it was very small in the spec i created for you. use the heart hardware as an example to understand what i mean. if you have questions just drop me a mail.
also usually you will have to provide a separate art spec just for the embossing. if you need help with that one let me know.
