How to properly create files
In order to print your numbered notepads, you will have to create two different files – as the following ones – that we will call Layout and Guide.
1. Graphic file
Only the graphic designs will be shown on the Layout.pdf file. In other words, there will neither be numbers nor punching marks.
2. Guide file
On the contrary, the file Guide.pdf shall include graphic designs, punching and numbers so that we can have a clear picture of how these elements should be placed.
In the numbered notepads section, you will find ready-to-use templates for you to properly set up the graphic file. Feel free to download them!
Room for metal staple
For blocks with perforation it is important to always keep in mind to leave a space, in the left edge of the block, 1,5 cm wide. This margin must be free from texts or important graphic elements because it'll be covered by a metal staple used to bind the block.
NUMBERINGStandard numbering starts from number 1. If you would like to start from a different number, please indicate the number you would like to start from both in the order and in the file 'Guide'.
Always remember that your file has to comply with the following features that apply to every file:
- 1:1 scale and 5mm bleed for each side
- CMYK colour model
- High-quality PDF
- Images resolution: 300ppi
