Using the -collate option in pdfprint. What is the difference between collated and uncollated?

Hi,

I am trying to get a multiple page PDF to print multiple copies without collation.

The PDF I am trying is 3 pages long and I want 3 copies printed in the page order 111222333.

Whatever I set the -collate to is always prints 123123123.

Please can you advise?

Customer
---------------------------------------
You may add "-setcopyto" option to try again, for example,

pdfprint.exe -copies 3 -setcopyto D:\test.pdf

Will you work better with "-setcopyto" option?

What is the difference between collated and uncollated?

We often get asked by our customers about collated and uncollated when it comes to our printing products.

Most people have projects they want to look a certain way, and understanding the difference between collated and uncollated is essential for any project coming out exactly how they want it to. If you need color copies collated for example, you're not going to be pleased if you receive uncollated color copies.

The difference between collated and uncollated is that collated means every page of your print job is kept in order. An uncollated print job is made up of pages not in order.

This article is designed to help clear up any confusion surrounding "collated vs. uncollated" for printing purposes.

Order your collated and uncollated printing online through VeryPDF PDFPrint Command Line on our color copies page. Our color copies pricing is the best in the nation – 6 cents per copy! And we have a fantastic customer service team ready to answer any questions you might have.

What does "collated vs. uncollated" mean?

In order to better understand the difference between "collated vs. uncollated", it's important to know what "collated" means.

The literal definition of "collated" is: collected and combined (texts, information, or sets of figures) in proper order.

"Uncollated" then, would be the opposite, meaning something that wasn't collected and arranged into any particular order.

Here's a picture of the difference between collated and uncollated for you to use as an example:

What types of products are collated and uncollated?

For the most part, the two products that generally fall into the category of collated and uncollated are color copies and posters. There might be many reasons why someone would want their color copies collated or their mini posters uncollated and vice versa. No matter what you're looking for, collated or uncollated, you can save money by going with an online printing company with a stellar reputation for quality and service.

Your printing does not need to be collated to be bound

If you're not interested in having a magazine or perfect bound book collated for any reason, then don't worry, you can choose to have it uncollated.

You can still bound a printing job without it being collated. There are a variety of reasons you might want something uncollated.

  • PDF
  • Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint)
  • Images (JPG, TIFF, PNG, SVG, etc.)
  • CAD

Keep Track of Contributor Revisions

Annotations can be made by each contributor as a layer.

  • Select an annotation layer(s) from a drop down menu of contributors
  • Add annotations or comments on a contributor's layer
  • Submit annotations for review
  • Show or hide annotations
  • Merge annotations
    • Option to merge all or select annotations

Preserve Original Documents After Annotation

Slash decision-making time and improve review, approval, and collaboration capabilities in existing applications through expandable and scalable viewer-based annotations.

  • Switch annotations and comments on and off at the click of a button

Does pdfstamp.exe has an option (that Acrobat DC has) to shrink page contents (or resize paper size) to a PDF document?

When I create a footer in Acrobat DC Pro, there's an option to shrink the document so that my new footer is placed below the document, instead of being placed on top of an existing footer.

The option window has the following text in it (with checkboxes):
Appearance Options
[ ] Shrink document to avoid overwriting the document's text and graphics
[ ] Keep position and size of header/footer text constant when printing on different page sizes
OK Cancel

Does pdfstamp.exe include an option to "Shrink document to avoid overwriting the document's text and graphics"?

Customer
------------------------------------------

Thanks for your message, pdfstamp.exe hasn't an option to shrink PDF page contents yet, but you can use "Advanced PDF Tools Command Line" to shrink PDF page contents, please look at following web page for more information,

http://www.verypdf.com/pdfinfoeditor/pdf-tools-command-line.htm#Set_page_content__

You can run following command line to shrink page contents before stamp it,

pdftools -i "C:\input.pdf" -o "C:\output.pdf" -j "60% 70% true"

Where the first parameter means to set page content to 60% of the page width and the second parameter to 70% of the page height, and the third parameter is a Boolean type value to set whether to center on page.

Note:

You can also use

pdftools -i "C:\input.pdf" -o "C:\output.pdf" -j "60 70 true"    

to set page content, where 60 and 70 are not scales, but the real size of the content.
