How to Create a PDF for Use in Print House

In order to create a PDF form for use in Print House, you will need to use software that allows you to edit PDF files, such as Adobe Acrobat DC or Foxit Sofware PhantomPDF.

This document will walk you through creating a form with Adobe Acrobat DC. If you are using PDF creation software other than Adobe Acrobat DC please refer to the Help for that software if you need assistance in creating a PDF form.

Things to Remember When you are Creating Your PDF Form:

Your PDF is only one page.

Your PDF form does not contain password protection.

Your PDF does not have any type of permission restrictions applied to it (such as not allowing printing or making changes).

Your PDF form does not have an exceptionally long file name or uses illegal characters in the name such as a colon or a question mark.

Creating the Form in Adobe Acrobat

1. Launch Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.

2. File>Open and choose the file that you want to use to create the form.

View>Prepare Form>Open

Alternatively, you can click on Prepare Form in the Tools Pane which by default is on the right-hand side of the screen.

You will then see the Form toolbar and pane.


Use the Add a Text Field and/or Add an Image field tools to create your form fields.

Some items to keep in mind while creating your form.

When creating a field in your form for a headshot or logo keep in mind the size of those items in Intuvo is square. Some suggested sizes for an image field would be 1x1 or 2x2.

When creating text fields in your form keep in mind the 8 custom fields in Intuvo used for custom branding and create your fields accordingly.

Once you have all of your form fields set up how you would like them, save the PDF. It is now ready for import.
