"Package for Printer" with InDesign

To provide your native InDesign files to Ram Offset, we will need all of the elements you used to create the file.

 

Alternately, you can provide us with a high quality pdf that has crop marks and bleeds.

 

  1. Save and Leave open your Adobe InDesign file.
  2. Resolve any errors concerning missing links or fonts.
  3. Go to File: Package.
  4. Click the Package button at the bottom of the Summary window.
  5. Click continue on the “Printing Instructions” window after entering all contact information and special instructions you would like Ram Offset to know.
  6. Navigate to where you will create the package folder (desktop is be fine) and enter the name of the folder, or leave the default file name InDesign assigns.
  7. Make sure that the “Copy Fonts,” “Copy Linked Graphics,” “Update Graphic  Links in Package,” and “Include Fonts and Links from Hidden….” are all checked. Other boxes should be unchecked.
  8. Click the package button.
  9. Navigate to the folder that InDesign created and verify that it contains copies of all required files. (InDesign, fonts, links, text file.)
  10. Right-click the folder and choose “Compress” (Mac) or “Send to ZIP” (Windows, might be something different but similar depending on what software you have installed). This will zip it up.
  11. If the file size is less than 10MB, you can e-mail it to your salesperson or customer service representative. If it's larger than 10MB, you will need to send your files by clicking here.
