>>>> The Full Bleed Saddle Stitch Booklet products require a different exporting process so please read those instructions in our How to Booklet for Saddle Stitch Booklets.
Go to File> Export
Save your card with the settings for Adobe PDF Preset: High Quality Print and the format as Adobe PDF (Print).
Rename your file so that you can identify it, and find it on your computer… your name or project name, version, etc.
In the bottom of the window be sure to choose for Adobe PDF (Print).
The settings will be dependent on the product you have chosen and the template instructions.
When you are adding photos and other design elements to your file the size of the PDF you create can end up being very large. We do have a limit to the file size that we accept via the Digital Storefront and would like to keep the size of your file to a manageable level.
This window will downsample and compress your files to a size that is targeted to the limits of our printers and will not make your file any less quality when printed.
You can also adjust your files BEFORE placing them into InDesign to avoid any major changes to resolutions.
Bicubic downsampling to: is the slowest but most precise method, resulting in the smoothest tonal gradations.
All fo the resolutions should be set to 300 pixels per inch which is plenty for the high quality printers we use.
Compression: Choose one of the three to compress your file. It will depend on the type of artwork you are using. We ask that you do NOT choose NONE as your file will be too large to process in our printing software.
Image Quality: Set to Maximum for the highest quality output.
We will ask you to go to the Marks and Bleeds section….be sure you are inputting the correct info here.
