How to print with crop marks:

My advice is to (1) print first, (2) then glue things together with glue tape or Studio Tac (I also have some if you need), (3) then crop / trim the cards. This way you do not have to struggle trying to line up two cards with glue on them. You can use the light tables in the printshop and the silkscreen room to line things up as well. For boxes, remember the grain of the paper and the grain of the chipboard must be going on the same direction, and apply glue with almost a dry brush, to avoid over-saturating.
