InDesign Logo and print course participants

This 1-day Introduction course will enhance your existing knowledge of Adobe InDesign CC by focusing on print production. Together, we will discuss some of the less well-known features of the program, and you will gain an understanding of the concepts behind the production of consistent, professional output for print.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Handle transparencies, layering, and flattening
  • Understand why, when, and how to use the Preflight panel
  • Package files for hand-off to a print provider
  • Configure presets and export PDF files

Specialist courses require specialist trainers: your instructor for the day will be an Adobe Acrobat and InDesign Certified Instructor and a current member of the Ghent PDF Workgroup.

Our goal is to help you understand and implement the techniques necessary to improve the quality and consistency of your print output.


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is intended for graphic designers, creative professionals, print professionals, publishers, pre-press professionals, and marketing communications professionals.

You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS). You will also need to know how to launch a program, create and save files, and copy files from CDs and other media.
