Design Cuts


Welcome to our brand new Design Basics video series created in collaboration with Eric Vasquez

In today’s lesson, we will talk all about how to set up your documents as print ready PDFs. We’ll begin by using Photoshop to discuss the differences between the Trim, Safety, and Bleed areas and the importance of using them as guidelines. Once we’re done and have flattened the document into a TIFF file, we can move into InDesign and add the finishing touches so it can be ready for print.

We would love to hear what you think of the series, please do leave a comment below.

    Thank you Eric, for creating and sharing this short but very informative tutorial.

    Before this is I was making my designs solely inside Photoshop.

    At the moment I’m stuck, creating a small 6 page leaflet with information for an Open Call to local artists.

    So I very much look forward to learn more from these and future tutorials on Photoshop and InDesign.
