How do I print onto blank Tabs stock on my Xerox C60 with EX rip?

I have a job that a client is now asking for the option to print my section dividers as Tabbed dividers. My plan to run this job was to initially run the guts of the book as 2-up Gang then I'll trim in half for offline finishing.

 

I know if they do want to go with tabs that I'll have to run the tabs separately and have them inserted manually into the book. How do I set up a page in Indesign (mac) and then print onto Tabs stock?

Entirely depends on what you do in the driver and the file.

 

If the file is layed out as 9*11 you just print it onto tab stock like the tabs don't exist.

If the file is layed out as Letter you need to turn on Image shift in finishing.

If the tabs are in the job and letter sized you do exceptions with the tab shift enabled

I have complete control on design for this document and the dividers will have quite a bit of colour on them (and hopefully I can get text aligned properly to print on the tab. I would choose to set up the tabbed pages as 9x11 inch as that just seems so much easier.

 

I need to produce 50 books and there will be either 2-sets of 5-bank tabs or a custom 10-bank set created. Should I load the stock into Tray 5 and which option should I select for exit. I'd assume I don't want to be 'flipping' the tabbed stocked within the printer.

Tray 5, tabs to the left, reverse order tabs (I believe)

It won't let you duplex them if programmed as tab stock because it will cause jams when the tab goes in front. If set as 9*11 hvyweight you may get away with duplexing. Exit doesn't matter at all if you are inserting into the job later.

This is perfect. On to some testing and an estimate for my client. Thank you.
