In the case of a folder/brochure, it is necessary to make left and right pages as well as left and right pages and to use the page numbering as it will also apply to the printed copy. In the document layout, the first page must always be a right page (odd page number) and the second page will then be a left page (odd page number).
Size always in multiples of 4 pages. Please do not put pages on the imposition schedule.
FORMATTING AND IMAGES
The image resolution at delivery should preferably be 300 dpi (lower resolution gives reduction in quality). If you are using ICC profiles, check for correctness.
Define special colors such as pantone, punch and crease lines, etc. as spot colors. Set punch and crease lines to "overprint".
Lines, surfaces, photos and other page elements that fall outside the cut-off always have a 3 mm bleed.
Preferably deliver used fonts 'zipped'.
When delivering so called open documents, use (if present) the function to collect all used elements (images, illustrations, fonts, etc.) of the formatted document. In this way, a single folder is created containing all the necessary files for processing. Include a printout of the document as well.
Format of the scanner is 260 x 434 mm and 300 x 434 mm for line work models.
Maximum size contractproofer 600x1100 mm.
Maximum inkjet printer size 1000 x 1200 mm.
