Imposition is one of the fundamental steps in the prepress printing process. It consists in the arrangement of the printed product’s pages on the printer’s sheet, in order to obtain faster printing, simplify binding and reduce paper waste. Correct imposition minimizes printing time by maximizing the number of pages per impression, reducing cost of press time and materials. To achieve this, the printed sheet must be filled as fully as possible.

In the publication station we wil try some Imposition software to look if it's can be useful in our workflow.

We will try the following software.

The input of this software is one PDF file ore more PDF file's of all the pages of a publication, the output is a PDF file with the pages with the imposition that it ready to print.

We will try and test the software to choose one that is suitable for our needs. And then we make description how to use the software in the station.
