  • setting up a folder design...

    Hi fellow graphic designers,

    I'm in the process of creating a design for a folder that is 9" x 12", with 2 inside flaps that measure 3 3/4", from top to bottom....Basically your standard presentation folder....

    My question is this: What is the best way to set up this kind of document in InDesign, so that it is acceptable to commercial printers? Should I set up my InDesign document with 2 pages that are each 9" x 15 3/4" (assuming there is no bleed)?

    I realize that every printer is different to some degree in how they process files, but surely there is some standard method for creating and laying out the design for a folder that is printer-friendly....

    I'd appreciate any input any of you might have on the subject....thanks.

      Illustrator works good with my company, but we offer templates in Illy, PS, Quark, and one other program. Again it depends on your printer...Some places cut differently

        ^^ What they said. Whoever is outputting these folders will have a template for you to download that is set up just the way they want it.
