  • Tiling and Exporting to PDF

    Posted by Derek Nuzum on October 14, 2009 at 12:23 am


    I am trying to tile a business card by exporting to PDF (for my printshop. They like to work with PDFs). I see no option to tile like I do in the Print box. Is there a way to do this?

    I am using InDesign CS4 on Mac OSX 10.6

    Firstly, you should check with your print shop regarding whether they’d want you to tile it. I suspect they’d rather a PDF of the single card, and they’ll do the tiling in accordance with their sheet size, cutting equipment, etc.

    If you must tile it, export the single card to PDF, then set up a separate Indesign file in which you’ll place the single-card PDF multiple times on the page—manual tiling, if you will—then export that page as your tiled output.
