Creating PDF brochure for printing: Remove white margin

May 27, 2013 2:14 AM

Hi guys,


I created a brochure in Idesign which has a black background color.


In order to print the brochure I want to create a PDF (with the right order of pages, e.g. page 1 next to page 8, 2 next to 7 etc.) via the "print function".

The page order is not a problem, but unfotunately I always get a white margin although there is no such in the original indesign document.


(When using the normal "export function" of Indesign there is no white margin, but then I cannot create a PDF with the right page order for printing...)


Has anyone an idea how to solve this?


Thanks for your help in advance!

    Add bleed to your pages, then print it with Print Booklet

    In order to print with bleed you generally need to print onto a larger sheet and trim. I'm guessing you are trying to print this on a desktop printer of some sort, and unless specifically designed for "borderless" printing they always have a border along the edge that cannont be imaged.
