  1. 1
    To begin, ensure you have Adobe Illustrator open and your document ready
    .
    There are other tutorials on VisiHow how to do that. There are three different objects on the artboard: the blue rectangle in the background, a yellow circle, and a yellow rectangle.

    Select the object to add crop marks to by using the "Selection Tool"

    It is the black arrow in the top-left corner of the tool bar. You can also use other selection tools if you have more complicated objects. Again, there are other VisiHow tutorials on how to do that.

    Click "Crop Marks" within the "Illustrator Effects" section
    .
    Illustrator then adds crop marks to the selected object. Crop marks are really useful for creating an image to be screen printed. They will help you to align several images once the document is printed.
