    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.

                Knowing illustrator isn't knowing design.
                I have a bit of knowledge on installing window films too...but wouldn't do a car on a bet. Nor would I do an on-site install over 5 small-ish windows. It...

                It's not enough to "give credit."
                It is up to the company that owns the photos/product whether THEY want you to be doing them any favors.
                Brand is by association. The owners of the...

                This got un-fun will quick. They are under the impression that giving credit is enough because it will give the company exposure to sell their products. It reeks of, "we are doing them a favor by...
