I am without my Senior Designer and facing a deadline that approaches before she returns. I've had a request from a printer creating tins for my company, to format our AI files to meet very specific requirements, ones none of us have encountered before.
What we usually send our printers is artwork files like this:
But what the printer is requesting:
Putting aside the fact I'm not familiar with this method of printing, they are insisting they can not use the already formatted files to print with, and that we need to model our artwork off of their die line template.
Is there a method I can use to warp or wrap the existing design around a circular path without ruining the text? If it was just a single line it would be simple but it's an entire label design.
