We recently discussed one of our most frequently asked questions, “How do I properly prep my images for large format printing?” Now we’d like to touch on another common question regarding prepping images for small format printing.
While we’re more than happy to help out with, or even do the design work for your projects, we know many of our customers have their own design resources and send their projects straight to our Print Department.

In the cases of sections ending with an odd number, an additional blank sheet must be added; this rule is only negated if you are requesting simplex (single-sided) printing.
Here’s how you can create a multi-page PDF with Adobe Acrobat Pro: Continue reading
