Page and sheet marks
Page marks and sheet marks can contain variable marks. They are placed on page output to provide information about a page or sheet. A page mark file should contain page-specific information because it will be placed on every page. A sheet mark file should contain information relevant to the whole sheet; it will be placed on the sheet once.

Prinergy Evo software supplies page and sheet mark sample files that you can customize, based on your own mark needs. You can find the Prinergy Evo page and sheet marks in <Prinergy Evo server directory>/config_data/User/MarkSets. Each subfolder contains the source file (QuarkXPress) for editing and the final marks PDF file.

You can create the source PostScript for page and sheet mark PDF files in any desktop software (for example, QuarkXPress, or InDesign). After you are satisfied with your file, create a fat, composite PostScript file containing embedded fonts. Use Distiller software to create a PDF file from your PostScript file. Alternatively, you can use the refine to PDF process template in the Prinergy Evo software.

Use the variable [PgyEvoConfig] as part of the path name in the Page Marks or Sheet Marks boxes to denote the <Prinergy Evo Server directory>\config_data folder on your Prinergy Evo system.
Example:

Entered in Page Mark box

[PgyEvoConfig] \config_data\User\MarkSets\Page Marks\B&W Proofers\Composite Proofs\PageMark-BW-Comp.pdf

Resulting path name

<Prinergy Evo Server directory>\config_ data\User\MarkSets\Page Marks\B&W Proofers\Composite Proofs\PageMark-BW-Comp.pdf

Example: page mark
Example: sheet mark

Slugline marks

Slugline marks provide a quick way to specify information about your output without creating a marks file in a PDF format.

For the output from imposition, output from PostScript, output from PDF, or output from TIFF process templates, using the Slugline Mark box in the Layout section of the Process Template Editor, you can specify information about the output, such as the job name, output date, and remake ID. To add a unique remake ID to a plate, type $[PlateID] in the Slugline Mark box. You can also control the placement of the slugline using the Distance from bottom edge to start of box and Distance from left edge to start of box controls.
