Once the layout and design of a job are complete, you’ll need to decide how to hand

off your fi­les. It is best to send the ­file as a PDF. In rare cases, you may need to provide

the source fi­les also. Either way, you’ll want to run though a preflight checklist.


Preflight Checklist - Are you Ready?


  • Ensure that all graphics and images are in their ­nal size and correct resolution, 100% at 300 ppi (250 to 350 ppi).


  • Rotate, scale and edit images and graphics prior to placing them in page layout applications.


  • Image ­files are linked properly.


  • All spot colors should be designated as spot colors and not as CMYK recipes. Spell-check your document.


  • Remove any trapping (allow the printer to apply trapping).


  • Check for transparency and notify its use to your print service provider.


  • Gather all source ­files: fonts, graphics, images and layout documents, if requested.


  • Use the “Package” feature in Adobe® Indesign® or the “collect for Output” in QuarkXpress®.


  • All bleeds should generally be set to 0.25 in (6 mm). Objects to bleed extend fullyinto the bleed area.


  • Perform a visual preflight using overprint preview, color separations preview and prepare a mock-up to give the printer as a finished sample.
