Duplex saddle stitch calendar


Recommended Posts

We have a calendar that we would like the customer to preview the first 14 pages and have the last 14 pages, pages 15-28 to be use as the printer pages.

We are trying to create a 14 page 11 X 17 two sided saddle stitch calendar. There does not seem to be an easy way to do this using FrusionPro Imposer. We would like the first 14 pages to be previewed in MarcomCentral the way the end user will see it. The last 14 pages are the printer spreads. Preview Body 1-14, Print Body 15-28.

There may be an easier way to do this the end result should be a pdf of pages 15-28.

The way the output pages need to be arranged we can not set this up using a simple Tumble Duplex or Saddle stitch option in FusionPro Imposer. I was told by support that it could be done as a OnRecordStart Callback rule, very much like hiding pages with the word “Proof” on them. I am trying to do this on my own without any success.

We want the end user to preview the first 14 pages. The print pages are different so a simple rotate pages will not work (the graphic on page 2 is needs to be the graphic from page 13).

The calendar needs to print with the January's photo on top of the bottom half of page 14. January's calendar would print with the top half of page 14. February's photo would print with December's calendar. February's calendar would print with December's photo. March's photo would print with November's calendar. March's calendar would print with November's photo. April's photo would print with October's calendar. April's calendar would print with October photo. May's photo would print with September's calendar. May's calendar would print with September's photo. June's photo would print with August's calendar. June's calendar would print with August's photo. July's photo would print with July's calendar as it appears.

I hope this makes sense.

I'm not aware of a way you can do this with imposer. You will most likely need to get the 1-up output and impose it manually with a traditional imposition software app.

As far as I know, this can indeed be done with FP Imposer. We've been discussing that here.

Thanks All,


Our Regional Sales Manager and I were able to create a rule that works.
