Four-Color Booklet

Still working on this one……

This booklet was created as a group project by myself and three other students in DIGM 4373: Graphic Production Process Control III the University of Houston.

The booklet contains bleeds which extends the color off the edge of the page and is trimmed off. The design was created in Adobe InDesign.

An imposition was created using Kodak Preps. The  polyester press plates were created on the Mitsubishi SDP Eco 1630 Digital Image Setter.

The Image Transfer Lab runs a Ryobi 3302 HA 2 color offset lithographic printing press. To create a full color document, it requires two runs through the press. Cyan and black were printed on the first run. At the next run date, careful alignment and registration was made to ensure that yellow and magenta fit into it’s place and that the other color densities were met.

The signature sheets were printed with the final output pages in the proper position so that when folded the pages are in order. Two right angle folds were efficiently done with the Mathias Baurle folder; which is a buckle folder. The booklet is then saddle stitched using the Bindery-Mate stitcher. This makes the document lie flat and it opens completely. The booklet was trimmed into fished output using the Challenge 265 paper-cutter.
