here is the situation: I have a 1.7gb Illustrator file with 15 artboards containing a mix of vector graphics and hi-res jpgs that initially needed to be saved as a digital/web PDF. That's been completed but I have been asked to also create a print-ready version as well which will be the landscape size of standard paper (8.5x11). I was trying to learn the best way to do this and am confused about what the appropriate path is.
- Simply switch the document color mode to CMYK and save each artboard as a High Quality Print? (This ends up giving me 70-150mb for each file)
- Place the individual RGB-saved PDFS in InDesign and Export with Print settings?
- Export each artboard in CMYK first from Illustrator, then Place into InDesign?
