Graphic Design Page Layout

Page layout is a basic graphic design method that involves arranging text and images on pages. Graphic designers can use page layout to design print documents that communicate, inspire and generate revenue. Designers may use many page layout applications to create these often huge, complex documents.

Printers want their page layout to result in a professional-looking, effective document. Despite a busy production schedule, graphic designers can perform valuable checks for print quality control, during the prepress stage of the print workflow.

It can be a challenge to make sure that a page layout document, with all of its content, is print-ready. If a graphic designer overlooks important print items, printing problems could result.


To produce error-free page layout documents, designers need a preflight solution that can check the file type in which they create. Yet, graphic designers may create in several file types. So, the ideal solution is one preflighting tool that can check all the file types that they use.

Is there a cost-effective way for graphic designers and printers to ensure print quality for prepress documents? You can check design files for print quality, by preflighting with Markzware‘s pre press software, FlightCheck.

check graphic design page layout in

  • InDesign (INDD)
  • PowerPoint (PPT)
  • Publisher (PUB)
  • Word (DOC)
  • Photoshop (PSD)
  • QuarkXPress (QXP)
  • and more

Incoming layout files with errors are quite common in prepress. This is one reason it is important to check files before you print. Watch this video demonstration of preflighting with FlightCheck:
