Printing printers’ marks

Printing printers’ marks lets you display information on a page about how a work should be printed. You can specify the position of the printers’ marks on the page.

The available printers’ marks are as follows:

• Crop/fold marks — represent the size of the paper and print at the corners of the page. You can print crop/fold marks to use as guides to trim the paper. If you print
   multiple pages per sheet (for example, two rows by two columns), you can choose to print the crop/fold marks on the outside edge of the page so that all crop/fold
   marks are removed after the cropping process, or you can choose to add crop marks around each row and column. Crop/fold marks ensure that marks appear on each
   plate of a separated CMYK file.

• Bleed limit — determines how far an image can extend beyond the crop marks. When you use a bleed to extend the print job to the edge of the page, you must set a
   bleed limit. A bleed requires that the paper you are printing on is larger than the size of paper you ultimately want, and the print job must extend beyond the edge of the
   final paper size.

• Registration marks — are required to line up film for proofing or printing plates on a color press. They print on each sheet of a color separation.

• Color calibration bars — are color scales that print on each sheet of a color separation and ensure accurate color reproduction. To see calibration bars, the page size
   of the print job must be larger than the page size of the work you are printing.

• Densitometer scale — is a series of gray boxes ranging from light to dark. These boxes are required to test the density of halftone images. You can position the
   densitometer scale anywhere on the page. You can also customize the levels of gray that appear in each of the seven squares on the densitometer scale.

• Page numbers — helps you collate pages of an image that do not include any page numbers or do not contain page numbers that correspond to the actual number of
   pages

• File information — prints file information, such as, the color profile; halftone settings; name, date, and time the image was created; plate number; and job name
