I want to send some artwork (signs) to a printing company – about 20 designs, with varying quantities printed.
Each sign is on it’s own artboard in illustrator. What is the best way to clearly communicate the quantities of each sign to the printer?
My thoughts are there would be a way to create some sort of non-printable annotation on each artboard that expresses the desired quantity?
Send each print project separately. That means split your AI document into 1 artboard per project. And you can then designate the quantity desired for FileXXXX.pdf, etc.
With varying quantities, relying on any other method is a recipe for errors.
