Optimized PDF page creation guidelines available...

Guidelines for creating an optimized PDF page that take full advantage of the enhancements and automation of our InSite/Prinergy prepress system are now available. The new PDF eliminates crop marks and slug area, while maintaining trim box and bleed box definitions on the page. This new PDF page structure will greatly enhance the ability to detect bleed problems during the page review process. Additionally, perfect bound publications can now create single pages for the covers, which, will allow the reviewer the ability to approve the perfect bound cover during the initial PDF upload. Contact techsupport for more information regarding these new guidelines.
