    how to prepare PDF file for printer when printing spreads with bleeds

    jobukoo

      I've created a 12-pg document that's ready to go for printer. The front and the back cover has bleed on it and not too sure how to prepare file.

       

      I've sent single pages with crop files to printer in the past so they can print as booklet on their end but this one is a bit tricky because of the bleed. I could manually create an 11x17 InD file and lay it out and export that as PDF with crop marks but something tells me that's not the best way.

       

      For this job, I'm sending out the original InD file so the printer can do whatever they need to do to get it right but I would like to know for the future reference.

       

      Thank you in advance!
