Week 15- Preparing my files for print

When preparing my fonts for print they were all okay and active. I didn’t need to change them because they were already preloaded in the system. When preparing for print I found the process a little more challenging. I did have to change RGB to CMYK this part was straightforward and not very difficult. I managed to set the bleed for each of artboards, (the red lines?). I did have some background colours that stretched all the way out to the borders edge, which meant I had to add 3mm to each side, I wasn’t really sure about this and didn’t know how to make sure the all the distances were actually 3mm? I also had to move a few pieces of text away from the trim line that were too close.

Overall my experience with this was more of challenge than straightforward, I think with more practice it will become very simple.
