How can I insert printing marks to designate a smaller format than the page size? Printing shop insists that for making a 7x5 inch print they need me to insert it into an A5 document. So placed it as they said, but am a bit uncertain how I could mark for them where the paper needs to be cut.
There is also another, low-tech solution to that issue.
- Make a document in the size you eventually need
- Apply Bleed marks
- Save as pdf/jpeg/etc., including the printing marks
- Create a new file, size as desired by the printing shop
- Place your document, keeping its size. Adjust position according to printer's wishes.
Keep in mind that the new document also ought to have bleeding marks, so if you align the actual file to any of the edges, then you need to make the bleed section overlap on that edge as well.
