You are confusing me.
Do following in the ONLY correct way:
- Make your publication with the dimension of the final single page.
- If you have facing pages, like you, you will have spreads with 2 pages by default.
- Export the file with all needed bleed as single PDF pages (I one file)
Most printers don't want trim marks and page infos.
Let the printer do the imposing.
Don't move content or pages away from the spine. Why should you do so? It causes irreparable damage to the file, Don't do that.
Thank you so much Willi
This looks like instructions for setting up end papers, which is really different than setting up interior pages that will eventually be imposed—you would only do it for the end papers (if they are going to be printed). End papers are not included in a signature so they are not imposed.
Here's an example:
Hey again Rob,
This is really interesting as we are setting up en pages with printed detail, I have attached the our front end page spread with continues onto End page 3, we have the same at the back of the book.. If I have exported the end pages as single pages, should the printer be able to account for this?
Or do I need to export the end pages differently?
Thanks you so much again for offering some clarity..
When I work on case bound books I send the end papers out as separate files. I would follow their diagram. In the case of end papers, the inside bleed could be important because they are not with the folded signatures. Looks like they want some white paper inside the bleed—maybe for gluing?
Hi again Rob, I think you could be right, and thank you for adding clarity again to this..
I've not encountered this before with this being my first hardback book design and layout..
The printer notes are poorly translated which doesn't help, nonetheless I was completely stumped on exactly what to do, and the space for gluing makes perfect sense...
Thank you Rob
I believe the printer is describing how to deal with a hinge. Limp bound is not the same as hard cover, afaik. When a book has a hinge, the first and last page will loose about .25" in width because the covers are glued to them, as a result the image will need to be moved left or right to account for this. The the image will need to bleed slightly under the hinge, but not so much that the ink will interfere with the glue.
