Hello Experts -

I have a 2" x 10" illustrator document.  I want to print four modified, individual copies of it on a single sheet of cardstock (with trim marks for each one).  Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, simply create an artboard the size of your final print stock. Then 'Duplicate' the layer containing your art four times and name these to identify these easily. Make your alterations to each.

Then create a different layer to draw your keyline/ trim marks. You cannot do this automatically as this would be done by artboard size but there is nothing stopping you to include these individually.

Alternatively you could create these for the first layer and then duplicate this with the duplicate the layer step.

Or, if you have indesign or quark, you could place each image separately on a page the size of your cardstock.
