Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Proofing and mockup , part of Designing a Brochure (2009).
Here's a proof from a color laser printer that I printed on both sides of the page. …First printing one side, then turning the page over and running it…through the printer again. To be able to print a letter-sized page with a full bleed…at 100% size, including the trim marks as well as the fold marks,…it's necessary to print on a tabloid-sized page. To make sure that the two sides line up, …I have centered the page on the sheet. If your printer doesn't allow you…to print on both side of the paper, then you will have to print both pages…separately and paste them together with a glue stick. This makes it harder,…though by no means impossible to make a convincing mock up, because your paper…will be double the thickness.…
First, working with an X-acto blade, a steel ruler and a cutting mat, …I'm going to lightly score along the fold marks, running the back of the blade…along the fold marks. …First one. …And then the second. …Having done that, I'm now going to trim the page from the tabloid sheet, align my ruler…
