Share Preparing for Print: InDesign Best Prepress Practices

Event Details

In the days before digital publishing, the creation of artwork for printing was almost always done by artisans carefully schooled in the craft of printing. Today, you are often on your own when you create an InDesign document for commercial printing. Join InDesign print expert Steve Werner as he shows you how to create "bullet-proof" files for your printer.

Whether you work on a Mac or Windows, and regardless of what version of InDesign you are using, you'll learn these valuable tips and techniques:

  • What you need to ask your printer before you prepare your file
  • Why and how to create a bleed, including one which extends into the gutter
  • What file formats work best for image files, and what ways work (and which don't!) for getting them into InDesign
  • Tips and tricks for ensuring that fonts don't trip you up
  • The ins and outs of handling colors in an InDesign document
  • Best practices for handling transparency
  • How to preflight your file-using InDesign CS4's Live Preflight or earlier versions of InDesign
  • What are the best PDF settings to use to create a PDF for print
