Advanced Class: Pre-Press Magic for Zinesters! is an advanced zine class on digital pre-press techniques for zines presented as part of Quaranzine Fest, April 5th 2020, during the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This class is for zine makers already adept at setting up files in Indesign and using Acrobat. It walks you through how to "preflight" your file both manually and automatically using InDesign's Preflight palette. It then explains the process of page imposition and using InDesign's Print Booklet feature to generate a PDF with the pages in "printers spreads" ready to print two sided fold, over, and staple! This blog post goes with the tutorial: ispress.co/2020/04/04/is-press-preflight-print-booklet-tutorials-2020/
