Lesson Task – Printing

  1. Design your own printing checklist form.

As you might see, the gradient on the background is not rendered optimally, as it did in indesign, but for the purpose of this task it is not really significant. What is important, however, is to keep these points in mind when exporting your documents for print, and organizing your files.

2. Problem solving

  • Use the magazine style brochure that you designed in Module 5. Add a spot varnish to the cover and change the design to use spot colours. (You are welcome also make layout changes if you want to.) 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.)
  • Upload the print-ready PDF to your blog and post screenshots of your packaged files, and instructions.

For some reason I could not find the «add instructions» when exporting it as a print ready pdf. This option was available, however, when packaging the files, although I found the space for the instructions to be insufficient if one were to follow one of the guides provided. So the second picture is from when choosing the «packaging» function rather than the «export».. function. This has probably been one of the most confusing weeks in terms of theme. I do hope at some point that I will understand the world of printing more. Lastly, I included the picture of the front of the brochure with and without having the spot color layer visible. The spot color is applied to the round red circle, as well as the Asiatours text.

3. Homework

  • Complete the LinkedIn Learning exercise files and submit it with your assignment….

Umm, what? x)
