Dear community,
I need to create a bunch of round stickers. We have a professional printer at my work.
But i am not sure how to make sure that the file is exported so that the printer knows to print and cut around the circle artwork, and not squared artboard.

Make a swatch color of 100% cyan and choose spot and name it DIELINE. Draw a circle to size on a new layer called DIELINE, and stroke it with the DIELINE color and no fill. You don't have to use cyan but this is just industry standard.  IF your sticker background was cyan or similar color you would for example use a contrasting color, and most got to magenta in USA.
