    Multi page pdf folding

    Thanks everyone, I will have a play about and give it a try. I just split them and printed them this time as my customer needed them asap but I do these semi regularly so if there is a way of speeding up the process I will take it,

    Multi page pdf folding

    Hi all. I have a 2500 page doc that I need to print double sided and fold every 2 printed pages. I know I can split the pdf into 4 pages and print but I am wondering if I can do this in fiery without splitting the document. I have a versant 80 with external fiery. Cheers Chris.

    printing & cutting booklets for the first time

    This! I did a job last year where I was plagued by static holding the sheets together and dragging double feeds through. It got so bad I had to stand and separate out each page of the book and restack the pile. Thankfully it was only 50 books or so but it was annoying!

    printing & cutting booklets for the first time

    If your booklet is a 16 page booklet that is 4 a4 pages so I create a 4page BLANK document and print it to the hold queue on the fiery. Once in the fiery I then tell it which tray my "blanks" are coming from and set the fold and staple options. - it might not be the best way or the easiest way...

    What we do, is just create a blank pdf with the number of flat pages in the booklet and send it to the queue on cws. And it just prints it. Have u tried that

    printing & cutting booklets for the first time

    We print 2 up on sra3 and trim out and then back through either the bypass tray or the impose tray to fold and staple. Face trim on either the square fold or the guillotine. We have a versant 80 and I have checked and it doesn't charge us for blank clicks.

    Duplo dc615 guillotine blades

    Thanks. I have spoken with Duplo who don't sell the blades separately but do sell a whole guillotine module for £550 which isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I see no harm in attempting to remove the blades and getting them sharpened and see if it works out.

    Duplo dc615 guillotine blades

    Hi. The cutting blade is getting blunt and is starting to miscut the cards and leaving the edge uncut. This is more noticeable when running a gutter of around 5mm. Can the blades be removed and sharpened by the people who do my guillotine blades or are they one shot blades and must be...

    Canva Files

    The biggest problem we have with canva files is customers using the wrong size eg. US size for UK business cards or a3 instead of a5 etc. It causes loads of niggling little issues that such the life out of us!

    Walk-in self serve printer from phone!

    I agree 100% we have a couple of photo kiosks that are dead easy to use and People are reluctant to use them. It's more wishful thinking.

    Walk-in self serve printer from phone!

    I have been looking for one of these or similar in the UK as I get loads of the walkin stuff and it really annoys us but it's part and parcel of being on the high Street. Are there any equivalents that I could look for

    Xerox Drums Revisited

    Bah! Shouldn't have said anything my massively overlife yellow drum finally but the dust. I am thinking of donating it to a museum as it must be the only one in recent history to go well beyond life!. Just hope the new one I put in lasts at least its rated life.
