Newbie: Need to make PDF for print
« on: September 26, 2018, 07:32:38 am »

I'm new to Scribus and DTP. I need to make some marketing material for a small fraternal organization. The printing company has a PDF template I should use - and I when need to produce a PDF with the following specifications:

100-150 ppi
0,1 CM Bleed
No CROP marks.

I use Scribus at a Windows Machine.

I will have to install FOGRA 39. Any idea how to find the correct one? I have found Coated FOGRA39 ISO 12647-2:2004) is this the same?

In Document Setup -> Color Management: Should I when activate color management. And Set CMYK Images and CMYK Solid Colors to FOGRA 39?

When I need to export the PDF - Should I when in the general tab choose PDF/X-3 and when in the Pre-Press tab choose output profile: FOGRA 39?

Hope someone can guide me in the right direction.
