Imposition Software

Finally, a resource dedicated to Imposition Software targeted at desktop publishers, graphic artists and pre-press departments. Here, you will find a comprehensive guide to the most valuable imposition software.

Firstly, we're going to review InDesign Imposition software and InDesign plug-ins. A decent InDesign imposition solution seems to be hard to find. When I started out in the industry, one of the most annoying tasks was manually duplicating text boxes and graphics across a page. After hours of hard work we’ve sourced this very valuable tool to any desktop publisher. You can find this InDesign Imposition software at and it's an example of a piece of imposition software which is simple, is value-for-money and just does its job (which all imposition software should!).

At $39.99 (£19.99), this plug-in imposes any InDesign document with literally one click. It can automatically calculates how many pages of your document can fit on the customizable page size (eg Tabloid or SRA3). It converts your InDesign document into a PDF and then automatically imposes it on a new document.

For the wealthy desktop publishers, I will list all expensive imposition solutions in future articles. However, this InDesign Imposition Software, is a good value-for-money start.
