    www.prepressure.com is a good website to read. Very informative and very good advice for the most part. All I have to say on it is if you are doing anything large or wide format, call your printer first for specs.

    I have a Pocket Pal Graphic Arts Production Handbook but it's so old it's more like a History of Print. LOL! It was great when I was in school.
    See if they have a current model.

      Good idea on the "Pocket Pal" PD!
      I got one when I was in school and still have it
      You can STILL get a copy, and this one is newer than mine...I have the 16th Edition. I think the newest one is the 19th.

      Get Pocket Pal here!

      Also, the site that PD mentioned is an excellent resource, quite handy!
      I blog, you blog, we all blog!

        I haven't finished it yet, but 'Getting it right in print' By Mark Gatter, seems to be really informative! It also tells you about the different techniques on both sides of the pond!

          Hi there - I have a wonderful book called "Production for Graphic Designers" by Alan Pipes. It's got a garish orangey cover and it tells me eveything I need to know. Not only does it go into good enough detail but it caters for people with little basic understanding. Good book

              Also check out Robin Williams's Non-Designer's Scan and Print book. It's got a great grip on the basics, and pitfalls. Plus, she's excellent at distilling information down to any level. I highly recommend anything by her.

                Thank you. It's a good point that it's expected nowadays. I'll charge the tax on top of the flat rate and discuss it with the client when I send him the first invoice.

                If you live in a place that requires that you collect sales tax on graphic design services, it really doesn't matter how you bill your clients as long as the tax is collected and paid. If you want to...

                I've always charged clients hourly and charge the Sales & Use Tax on top of that.

                Just picked up a new client and we worked out a flat rate (x amount per design regardless of time)....

                keming: thanks for the welcoming. I'm referring to all text in general, it looks like out of place. I don't know if I'm explaining myself correctly. It doesn't have that smooth feel to it, like it was...

                That could be a good thing for people in the industry that give a damn, just another reason for someone to pay a little more for quality.
