How can the Venngage editor help me create a design layout that will be ready for professional printing?
Venngage provides several features that will not only create engaging designs, but also help you properly prepare your layout for professional printing. Here is a Prepress Checklist to utilize Venngage's features and to ensure that your design layout meets basic printing requirements:
Page Resize / Custom Page Size: Under Settings, set the desired page size and page orientation before you begin creating your design (i.e. letter-sized, portrait).
Margins Guide: An Alignment guide to help keep your text within the recommended space away from the edge of the page to avoid accidentally cutting off any text.
Image Uploads: When uploading an image, ensure that the pho image's resolution is optimal for print quality (i.e. 300 DPI). Avoid fuzzy, pixilated, and blurry imagery.
Turn On Comments: Share your design and *Turn on comments* so your team can provide feedback and proofread before you send the file to the printer.
Show Print Bleed: If there are colored elements extended to the edge of the page, turn on *Show print bleed* under Settings to add print bleed and crop marks.
Download: When downloading, select the PDF file option for higher quality printing output. If the *Show Print Bleed* setting is turned on, crop marks will also be visible.
