ILLUSTRATOR PDFS

Also in this tab, in the Bleeds section, put 3mm for each of the values. To Print to a PDF: Select Adobe PDF as the printer. Under the Marks and Bleeds tab, check Trim marks.

INDESIGN PDFS

PDFs are exported from InDesign. Use the Press Quality preset. Under the Marks and Bleeds tab, check Trim marks. Also in this tab, in the Bleed section, put 3mm for each of the values.


PHOTOSHOP PDFS

Set up your document size including bleeds. For example if your final printed piece is to be A7 (74 x 105mm) make your Photoshop document 80 x 111 mm. To print your PDF: Select File > Print then select Adobe PDF as the printer. Click the Page Setup button, in the Adobe PDF Settings tab, select Press Quality in the Default Settings dropdown. In the Adobe PDF Page Size section, you will need to add a custom paper size 10mm larger than your Photoshop document, click Add/Modify and select the new page size you created, click OK. In the Position section, ensure that the Center Image option is checked. The Scaled Print Size option should be 100%. In the Output tab check the corners for Crop Marks. Click Bleed and enter 3mm as the value. Click Print and your PDF will be created.


LAYERED ARTWORK


When supplying artwork as a PDF please ensure that the artwork is set up correctly. That is, image files from Photoshop should be flattened to one layer and not set up as a multi layer document, this decreases the amount of superfluous information on your file and streamlines it for output.
