Chapter 18. Printing > Using a Service Bureau

Using a Service Bureau

When preparing files for a service bureau or print shop, you will probably need to generate PostScript (.ps) or Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) files, include crop marks, and provide information about the project and how you want it printed. If the project is color, you will need to prepare color separations: creating one sheet for each process and spot color—with registration marks.

Note that in order to generate a PostScript or Encapsulated PostScript file, you must print to a PostScript printer, such as one of the Apple LaserWriters. (If you don't actually own such a printer, you can always print to the Device-Independent PostScript File print driver or to the particular printer that's used by your service bureau. Contact them for help choosing an appropriate print driver.)
