Sitting at the bottom of the File menu within InDesign is the Print Booklet feature. This feature has the potential to virtually cut out imposition time and for that reason it should not be overlooked. As print machines, paper sizes and ways of working vary I will try to keep this tut as generalised as possible. However the tut will be easier to follow if your design is portrait, saddle stitched(stapled) and contains eight pages or more.
Start by opening your design. If you don’t have one, check my previous tut on how to create one How to Make an A5 Print Ready Leaflet InDesign CS5 or alternatively you can follow this link to download a template ready for instant use Elegant A6 Pocket Brochure Template. Note: as we are printing a saddle stitched booklet your pagination should be in multiples of four, for example 4, 8, 12, 16 and so on.
