please check below for description of project
I need to create an about 300 page hi res pdf catalogue of car spare parts for printing from excel data and image files.
a)Image files are in ai and/or pdf and/or jpg formats.
b)all excel data is sorted in exactly the way it should lay out in catalogue
c)I can put image file path into the excel data files otherwise product names match the image file names.
d)if you require XML or such please output have the ability to output XML yourself
e)some Japanese characters will appear in the heading.
f) each section needs to start from the right page, if needed one blank page may be left on the left side.
I have the **exact** output specifications of bleed, margins etc. to the final bidder.
1-Cover = Not required already done
2-Prologue = reuse old page
a)Summary index of the whole book, basically my own description for each section.
b)Detailed index , pointing to page number of each heading in section A
*from experience it is about 8 pages long.
4- Section A **Application Reference**** ****(****Gray-scale****) <- this is the most complicated section due to **
a) Japanese Car Maker
b) Chinese Car Maker
c) European, Usa and Other car Maker
*all 3 parts are same format for data but different side bar and heading.
***Important:side bar has to have the respective brand highlighted if it is present of the page it appears it also bleeds outside the page margin so when the factory cuts the books some highlights are visible outside the book.**
5-Section B **Products (Full color CMYK ,**** ****not RGB plz****) <- this is a very image heavy section**
*Product image and description, fixed size for everything, but quite heavy file because of the large number images
*1 image per 1 product only
*where image is not present(which is rare) a default image is to be used
6- Section C **Cross Reference**** ****(****Gray-scale****)**** ****<- this one is quick and simple**
*Simple section Just running number start to end
*Samples from some previous additions of the above part 3,4,5,6 attached. Please note that samples are to show the data layout required they do not follow the bleed and margins required for the pages.
*Section B and C might reverse as in C Cross first then Products, I'm still awaiting Confirmation
By the way for motivational purposes I have 3 more books with very similar formating but different data which i can outsource this month so if we can get this done quickly enough I can can give out subsequent project immediately.
Once again i need the result in PDF, CMYK output and its ok to split the pdf into sections because the section B will be a large file.
