Chapter 12. OUTPUT

Chapter 12. OUTPUT

Several years ago the title of this chapter would have been Printing. That was what you did with page-layout documents. You printed them using a desktop printer. Today, however, there are far more choices for your InDesign documents.

These days, the term printing is too limited. Printing is what you do when you send a document to a desktop printer. InDesign files are created as part of the professional prepress process. (For more information on professional printing see The Non-Designer's Scan and Print Book by Sandee Cohen and Robin Williams.) So you need to know more than just how to print to a desktop printer. You need to know how to make sure your document has been setup correctly. You need to know what files are necessary to send to a print shop.

So this chapter is called Output. Output refers to preparing files and printing them—to either an ordinary desktop printer or with a service-bureau image-setter.
