    Greetings,

    3 up dutch cut is the answer to the original question, as most people have noted. Not a big deal.

    However, when the runs are short, which they often are, I'll sometimes throw them on the sheet two up, right down the middle and slam it out. (You can also move it around to avoid print flaws if necessary) The cost of paper is negligible, and if all you have for imposition is what came with the 5500, it's a fast and easy template.

    mf.

    Er I'm not really seeing what the big deal is here. We do impositions with items facing different ways often enough, to get more on the sheet. Also not uncommon to run a job a few percent smaller, customer never notices. Seriously though, it can't be that much of an issue unless you've already quoted it 4up, if not, then what's the problem?

    Agree, just make the card .25 smaller, I doubt the customer would even know or care. Or better yet tell them how much less it will cost to go with the slightly smaller size, and how it will use more of the sheet, that it's better for the environment, bla, bla, bla..... they'll buy it.

They just want quality work and a great value from your company.
    Good point VistaPrint's Business Cards aren't even the Standard US size.

    We've got an antique push-me-pull-you manual guillotine (well all the cuts are scrolled into place - no programming here) so 'funny' cuts ain't a problem :P

    3up is as good as it gets, the only problem is you have an odd cut. But you get more on the sheet....

    Run them 3up? Or am I missing something here?

    Hey.. Thanks Vee.. Does this mean we should try to get our clients to go for a smaller size or ? We want/need the business so I am trying to figure the best approach. We are having so many people wanting the 6x9 now.. Used to be 5.5 x 8.5 that was popular.... The image area is really not helping with the larger stocks.. What do most people do in this case? Turn the work away? Thanks for any more input on this..

    6 x 9 + .25" bleed (.125 per side) = 6.25 x 9.25 - 4up = 12.5 x 18.5

    OR

    6 x 9 + .125" bleed (.0625 per side) = 6.125 x 9.125 - 4up = 12.25 x 18.25

    So no, no way to get that 9" measurement to run twice in that image area. It fits the sheet, but what good is that if you can't image it?

    6x9 postcards on Indigo 5500...

    I have an Indigo 5500 and I am running 13X19 substrate. WIth the max image area being 12.48" x 17.7", is it possible to do a 6x9 postcard as a 4up with bleed and show crops? We keep getting a skewed image ( almost out of registration look) at the edges, but in live area???? Help Thanks so much..

Print Embellishment Goes
Straight To The Bottom Line

InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
