File Preparation Guidelines and Checklist

Testing Files

If you are new to printing with Magnolia Press, it is strongly recommended that you send test files as soon as possible. This will help to catch any problems, and the earlier they are resolved the more likely your job will go to press on schedule. Some of the problems we find most often are color management, trim size, PDF settings and missing fonts.

Trim Size

Be sure you have reviewed the trim size of your publication with your Customer Service Rep before starting to build any documents. The document size (found in the “Document Setup” or Layout Properties” menus) must equal the publication’s trim size. Any bleeds will extend at least 1/8” beyond the edge of the document.

Layout Software

It’s always a good idea to use a program specifically built for page layout, such as InDesign or Quark. Using Illustrator or Photoshop is NOT recommended, as they can cause problems and compromise the high quality of your work.
