Week 12, Class 2

Printing our Booklets

Holy cow, I had the worst time getting this to work! Indesign has changed a lot of stuff and it is now a total pain in the oil pan, but I found some good resources. Here is a zine I was working on for us to work with, so let’s download it (it’s unfinished as the method I was describing was not working).

InDesign Print Booklet Issue Solved, Thanks Adobe


I want you to try and make your booklet in class whether you are finished with the layout or not. We may run into some major issues as we cannot modify permissions on the school computers. If that is the case, I will make your booklet pdfs for you to send to the printer’s.

  • Here is an example of a booklet of a regular, no-full bleed zine.
  • Here is one with the full bleed, laid out on 11×17″ paper with trim marks.

Type Books
These are much more straightforward, so we will go over making these into pdfs and sending them to FedEx. I want them to be bound on the left edge with a spiral binding, with the cover of your choice. The cheapest version is a plasticized paper back and a clear plastic cover. Remember to clean them up and make the compositions work as best they can.


  • Finish your printed zines. Have at least one copy for next Thursday.
  • Also, print your type books, with the cover and spiral edge.
