Often, but not always, I have problems adding printer marks to a PDF document. I think I'm doing the same steps each time, but not always successful. Steps I take are as follows:
  1. Create image in Illustrator 10.
  2. In Illustrator, add 1.5cm on each side of actual image size (so a 5 x 4 cm doc setup in Illustrator becomes 8 x 7 cm document setup in Illustrator). Reason for this is so the artboard is now big enough to show the printer marks when I create the PDF in Acrobat 7.
  3. Open my PDF image.
  4. Choose Tools > Print Production > Crop Pages
  5. I have zero margins for crop, bleed, art on all sides, and have 1.5 cm margins for trim, then OK. I see the green box showing the trim rectangle & correct trim size shows.
  6. Then choose Tools > Print Production > Add Printer Marks > Tick Trim Marks, then click OK (Check boxes: Embed printer marks with layers, & Warn if Crop box too small are both ticked), then click OK.
  7. If the printer marks will appear on the page then I will be always warned along the lines that the printer marks might overlap the artwork. Printer marks then appear. For some strange reason, far too often I don't get the warning, and no Trim Marks appear. What on earth am I doing wrong? Or is there some weird thing happening? (I haven't cropped the page, thereby cropping off the printer marks.)

Any help with this frustrating thing would be much appreciated!
