Instructions for making a pdf in Indesign

Real Estate Print recommends using Adobe Indesign to create a pdf if your designer has not already given you a ‘print ready pdf’.

Prior to making the pdf in Indesign select ‘Type’ and then ‘create outlines’. This converts fonts to outlines and prevents fonts from being replaced in the event you have used a font we do not have.

To make a pdf click file/export/pdf Print, then set the compression to 300dpi, tick ‘crop/trim marks’ then in page information set 3mm bleed on all sides.

Where the item you are printing is double sided your pdf should be 2 pages.
