    Meh.

    Not enough focus. I'm not drawn to read any of the articles. What do you do besides Print news?

    I started out by switching over from flash (expert flash, but then I didn't do much programming from then on). Granted I was in the "job" at the time, but I started out doing emails. Once I...

    Hi Mozo,

    I love this design. Modern, fresh, and vibrant! I think you've nailed the design concept.

    Obviously without much context, I'm unsure of a few things that might be cleared...

  • Brochure size...

    So i have a client who wants me to do a brochure for them. They want the cover, left inside, right inside, and back cover. So basically one page folded in half front and back. What size should I make my document?

    I failed to mention, it shouldn't be too wide. Im thinking 5.5 w x 8.5 h might be to wide...

      How long is a piece of string? It depends on how much information and images you need to squeeze in. I don't think we can answer this for you...

      How about you pick a size, lay it all up and then ask us if the size is right for the amount of info you got in there?

        I guess that works. I was just trying to think in the most logical way of when it gets layed out to print. Ideally I would like 2 up on a page so I think I'll go for there... thanx buda. oh and its 2 inches long... i mean, the string the bit of string 2 inches long

          I was thinking that you needed the copy first, too. What are these gonna be used for? I would also find out what size paper they are gonna be printed on when they hit the press. Talk to the printer. They may have an optimal size for their presses that will get you more bang for the buck when it comes to setting them up so that little paper is wasted and you get a smaller run in terms of press time and consumption.

              Cornfed, its for a Baseball training company for kids. I already have the copy but I pretty much have free reign over what to do, that is until I submit my first rendition and they take it from there. My friend is the one doing the printing and he said size doesnt matter to him, and the client has only expressed bi-fold, but I don't think he (being my friend the printer) can do bleeds. (Small operation that I am trying to help build up). So since I dont have any prepress experience im kind of grasping at straws here.

                Would your friend be able to advise you in this?

                You'll still need to figure out the minimum size that will allow for the copy you have, but ideally the size would be a multiple of some sort of the parent sheet size that your friend will be printing them out on.

                      good point, if they come back to you with an optimum sheet size you can always go 2,4 8up
