File Requirements

BOOKLETS

When setting up saddle stitched booklets for print, we have very precise requirements in order for a satisfactory result.

  1. Please set up pages as individual, consecutive pages (not printer's spread format)
  2. If a full bleed is required ensure the bleed is set to .125” on ALL sides. 
    For example a 5.5” x 8.5” page would result in a 5.75” x 8.75” size.
  3. Ensure generous margins.  Remember each page will be cut to your finished size. 
    Ensure text and graphics are safely within these constraints to avoid trimming. 
  4. DO NOT include crop marks on the finished file.
  5. Finally save your design as a PDF ensuring you select:
    No crop marks, and include the 1/8” bleed, high quality, turn off editing capabilities. 

Observing the above, should result in a finished PDF file that is print-ready and including all necessary bleeds.
