Print preperation – 20-page magazine

 

Research, written and practical assignment (problem solving)
  • Design a simple dummy 20-page magazine style brochure combining dynamic typography and photography. You can use placeholder text for body copy. For your magazine, use a spot varnish for the cover and design it using two spot colours.
  • Make use of your checklist that you designed and prepare the file for print.
  • Decide what paper weight and type you will use.
  • Decide what type of binding you will use, for example, saddle stich, perfect bind, etc. (See the printing terms link.)
  • Submit the print-ready file packaged from InDesign as well as a print-ready PDF.

Make sure to include the instructions (like spot varnish, paper choice and binding) in the file.

I am using native psd-files for my images, this makes the package file close to 1gig large. I have therefore zipped the file, and this file can be downloaded here. My blog only alowes me to upload maximum 96mb. So I am aproximately 800mb short of upload space haha. 😉 But here you have it! 😀

Here you have my print instructions for this task. I have 2 spot colors and varnish on my cover. See more details in the instructions. The printer conected to this system is a standard office laser printer, and that is the reason for the composite RGB detail.
