Imposition Software for Macintosh


How do you get your pages — printed from your desktop or prepared for commercial printing — into the proper printing order? Some page layout programs do this automatically. At other times you need plug-ins, XTensions, or stand-alone programs to impose your pages for printing booklets, newsletters, or books. The products listed do not include many of the high-end programs used in high volume commercial print production facilities. These are programs more suitable to individuals and smaller volume production needs.

This list updated September 2010.
