I'm writing my thesis using Latex and nearing its completion I'm beginning to worry about the quality of the hardcopy. I'm curious about what should be taken into consideration when preparing a document so that the printed document is of such a good quality as the PDF produced by Latex.
From what I've read in some answers on this site, I have the following impressions:
I should ask the printing shop for the binding correction for my page size and take it into account in my page layout.
I should ask the printing shop for their available printing sizes and produce cropping marks if necessary.
The colors in my document should be defined using CMYK instead of RGB (though I'm not certain on this), which makes me wonder if I should convert my current colors from RGB to CMYK.
Are there any canonical things that are important when preparing a hardcopy? Of course I refer to things that can be done in the Latex source to improve the quality of the printed ouput (or to minimize the problems that may arise).
