The layout applications we fully support are: QuarkXpress and Adobe InDesign. If you are using Adobe Pagemaker, Microsoft Publisher or anything else, please contact your Client Services Representative for assistance.

When you are ready to send us your finished files, we recommend creating a single print-ready PDF file from one of these applications. A PDF file preserves all the fonts, formatting, graphics and colour of any source document.

Creating your own PDF files will help save you time and money. To help you, we have created application specific guides in PDF format for you to download or to view in a web browser. The guides will provide you with all the information you require to prepare your files for Hignell Book Printing. Please select a program below for your information.

View these pdf guides using Adobe's Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded for FREE if not already installed on your computer.
