PAGINATION

When doing a design/layout for a newsletter or book, it will help us if you provide your files already paginated. In fact, if you have any copy, photos or background screens that run between two pages it is required.

See below for an example of a paginated 12 page book.
11 x 17”, folded, collated and stapled to make an 8 1/2 x 11” book:
Page 1, or the “cover”, is always on the right side, with the last page, or “back cover”, on the left. It is helpful to make a paper “dummy”, folding and numbering the sheets of your book. Then you can open the pages up flat, and easily see how the pages should paginate. Remember: each “sheet” of paper, when paginatated equals four complete pages.

REGISTRATION MARKS & COLOR SEPARATIONS

If your finished piece will be 2 or more colors, overprinting or
close registration, save your files to include:

  • Page information
  • Crop marks/registration marks
  • Color separations
  • If you have bleeds: extend your bleed area outside of the cropmarks.
  • This will ensure a true bleed when we cut your finished piece
