Design for Print
Brochures | Presentation kits | Printed newsletters | Annual reports | Sales kits, sales sheets | RFPs | Spec sheets | Business Cards & Stationery
I’ve been designing print for 30+ years – I know the process inside & out and I love doing it.
Designing for print can be a little confusing if you’ve never don it (it can be pretty daunting.). Not only do you have to prepare and create a design that works (a big task in itself!), but you also have to ensure your project is properly set up for print. You need think about color profiles, resolutions, sizing, which type of black you’re going to use, your app choice (Adobe Indesign or Illustrator), and of course, bleed and trim.
First step: understand your business purpose
Next: learn your brand identity and gather assets
Then: design and layout all content and generate a PDF for proofing
Finally: make your edits, spell check and set up files per printer specs
I can provide help with getting quotes or working with printers to make sure you get the best results possible.
