CORRECT INDESIGN DOCUMENT SETUP
Document Size
Bleed Ads: The document size should match the ad trim size. Extend items that will bleed 3mm. beyond the page edges into the paste board area. For a full bleed, extend all four sides.

Safe Text Area: Keep all text approximately 10mm. inside the trim to ensure that text does not get cut off.

Correct Color Palette Settings
Convert all RGB colors to CMYK. Convert all spot colors, including Pantone, to CMYK.

Perform a “Package” option in InDesign
 
This will notify you if any graphics are missing. You must update all modified graphics.

Fonts
Be sure to include all fonts used in the document.

ACCEPTED COLOR PROOFS:
Please do not rely on ink jet printers for your color proof. Most ink jet printers do not yield accurate CMYK color output. All proofs must be prepared to SWOP standards.

Additional art work expenses due to adjustments and proof corrections will be charged upon agreement.
