Booklet Printing Made Easy!

booklet

Are you ready to launch your next booklet or magazine… but have no idea how to prepare it for printing? We’ve heard the horror stories of booklet designs that looked fantastic on screen, yet when it came to printing, they ended up with incorrectly aligned pages that made all the work seem like nothing. But worry no more! At Trendz Print Media, we have come up with the perfect solution for booklet printing that will take your marketing material to the next level. In this blog, we will be explaining some simple steps for designers to follow when they want to set up their booklets using InDesign. What’s even better – we only use the newest InDesign software in-house to help all of our clients come up with flawless booklets, regardless if they are designers or not! Our graphic designers can help you with the task!

Here are some simple tips to follow for booklet setup:

1- In Indesign, choose “Create New Document.” You can specify the page size and number of pages in the menu. Make sure the option “Facing Pages” is checked. This will let you see the layout of your booklet with pages side by side.

2- Click on “More Options” to adjust your Bleed, at the bottom of the menu. Having a bleed is extremely important when printing a booklet! The bleed area is where all elements of your design should extend to if you want to have seamless graphics going all the way to the edge of your page. Otherwise, you can end up with undesired white borders! Set your bleed to 0.125″ on all edges.

3- You can adjust your Margins to be any size – they are there to help you keep your important text and graphics into one zone to preserve alignment and consistency. To be safe, NEVER make your margins less than 0.125″ (same as bleed area). This creates a safe zone for all of your design elements. The most common size is 0.5″ on all edges.

4- Click “Ok”. Depending on the number of pages of your document, you will see how InDesign accommodates your pages to be side by side. The red margins are where your bleed extends, and the purple margins are your safe zones. Now you can start designing!

5- Whenever you are ready to send your booklet to print, select “File – Export…” and choose “Adobe PDF (Print)” from the format menu. Click “Ok”. You will see a new PDF menu with some specifications.

6- Choose “High Quality Print” in Adobe PDF Presets. Then, click on “Marks and Bleeds” on your left side menu. Make sure you check “Use Document Bleed Settings.” If you don’t, the bleed you specified in your document will be ignored!

7- Click “Export”. Now you have a perfectly designed booklet ready to go to print!
