That's the Artboard and you don't remove it. You can make it larger or smaller by going to File > Document Setup and then click on Edit Artboards: Your artwork must be contained in the Artboard. I'd suggest you read the link above from Adobe to get a better understanding of this concept.

Place figure instead of importing Illustrator is able to place EPS and PDF figures inside of a document without importing them. If you only need to add some elements to the figure and you do not need to edit it, this feature allows to avoid all the headache associated with importing it into Illustrator in the editable form.

To expand a little on what Ryan said, there is a faster way to edit your Artboards. Simply click on the Artboard Tool and resize them to fit. The even faster way is to automatically size your Artboard to fit your artwork. I have this image of a tree that extends beyond my Artboard Go to Object > Artboards > Fit to Artwork Bounds And there ...

This is a common technique in Illustrator called "Step and Repeat". The trick is to transform an object once using the "Transform Each" option, making sure to hit "Copy" instead of just hitting "Ok". Then you use the "Transform Again" option to repeat your procedure over and over for each consecutive object. This technique is broken down into detail with ...

Actually, this is rather easy in Illustrator. This is one of the possible methods: Select your first petal with the black arrow selection tool (V); Select Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform...; Set the number of copies to your desired amount of petals and check the 'preview' box; Set a value slightly above 100% for both Horizontal and Vertical ...

I'm going to assume here that you're not using the pen or shape tools. In this case you'll want to use the live paint tool. Select your design and press the K-key. Then choose a color and start filling. In the future you may want to use the pen tool. This will give you more control.

You should try to use a PDF export instead of EPS, it should do the same thing except that it should work better with transparencies etc. While so far i have mostly the same answer as Alexey Popkov who is worth listening to theres something more you can do: In the case that you absolutely have to have an EPS file and none of the other files work, you can ...

Related Questions: Delivering a graphic design to a customer How do you explain the value of native files to an uneducated client?

Measurement settings are application wide and are not document specific. Just right-click, or control-click the rulers in the document and choose the scale you want. You can also input any scale into measurement fields. If the document is set to use pixels, you can input 50mm and it will automatically be converted to pixels. There's no need to keep changing ...

One simple way to add an arrowhead halfway along the path would be to split the path into two segments, and add the arrowhead to the first half. Draw the path, in the normal fashion. In the example you gave, I'd use the pen tool and draw a bezier curve with a starting point at ā€œxā€ and an end point at ā€œzā€. Split the path. If it consists of only a start and ...

I realized you can achieve this goal by being crafty with Dashed Line in Stroke. I wanted one line open, but also wanted the curvature of the fill. You can change the length of 'dash' and 'gap' using the arrow keys on your keyboard to quickly change their values until you find a combination you need.

Since this is a jpeg, you will have to turn each letter into a vector. The quick way but not very good way of turning a jpeg into a vector is by going to Object -> Image Trace -> Make. Red: You can then select Image Trace Panel to fine tune the selection. This will bring up a window where you can select options so Illustrator knows how you want the ...

You need to get the die-lines from the print-shop. There may be even some online for free, but I doubt that they are the same the one the printshop uses. Btw don't forget the design needs to be in CMYK

The problem appears to be with those fonts, at least that's what it looks like to me. You can see how poorly made the font is and that some of its characters are incomplete.
