To make it as easy as possible for you and to avoid errors, we perform the imposition (arrangement of the pages on the sheet) for you.
Therefore, the individual pages of the contents (3, 4, 5…) must be created in sequence and may not be imposed in advance (e.g. 150/3, 4/149, etc. is incorrect). You can deliver the individual pages either all together in one PDF file or each page as an individual PDF, whichever is easier for you.
The important thing is: individual pages, no double pages! It should be noted here that almost all layout programs offer the option of a double-page display for layout. However, the pages in such programs are only displayed as double pages and are still single pages after export. You can of course use this option.
Please create the catalogue cover completely assembled as a double page (exterior + inner) including crown width!
Adhesive binding: position depends on reading direction and layout orientation
Punched holes: position depends on reading direction and layout orientation
