File Setup and Output Information
The printable area for color laser copy printing is listed below for each paper size.
Note: bleeds off the edge of the paper are not possible - design within the actual printable area as follows:
|Paper Size||Printable Area|
|8.5 inches x 11 inches

|11 inches x 17 inches
||10.5 inches x 16.5 inches
|12 inches x 18 inches
||11.5 inches x 17.5 inches
(Photoshop users should set their image size to fit within one of the above sizes. We recommend a resolution of 200-300 dpi at exact size. IMAGERS will not enlarge your Photoshop image to fill the intended paper size unless instructed to do so.)
Scans for color lasers should be 200-300 dpi for best results. You should scan your images at the final size. Save as .eps (esp. for PowerPoint) or .tif for placement into your layout software for the most dependable output.
Set color for scanned files in the software they originate in, recoloring scans after importing them into your page layout software can cause unexpected results.
Precise front-to-back registration should not be expected. The following checklist should help you design files that print well:
- Do not design your pages too tightly.
- Design with ample gutters for folded jobs to ensure text columns and graphics fit within the folded area.
- Items placed too close to the edge may get cut off if trimmed.
Print and approve one color laser copy, especially for large orders, so you can verify proper positioning on your final product.
Always include a dummy or "go-by" if we are providing finishing services.
