I am making a bunch of pdf's for a client to be downloadable from their website. I am using a mac and saving as pdf from illustratorCS3. My question is this: What are the best settings for print margins to use so that anyone can print it out without having any of the document cut off or cropped? In Illustrator, I can view the page tiling which shows the printable area for my printer, so I can keep all elements within those margins. However, different printers have different maximum printable areas. What is the normal practice to make a document that anyone can print? Or, another way to state the question: what measurements do people use for the non-printable margins in order to offer a document on the web that anyone can print without cropping? Is there a standard way to do this in the inustry? Thanks.
