What you need to know about file preparation for printing
“It is inevitable as a business owner that at some point you will need a document or an ad created for printing. It’s also inevitable as a business owner that the person you hired to create these documents or ads is either on vacation or out sick, and it’s up to you to make the press deadline of 5:00pm that day. Now what?”
Well don’t panic, not just yet. I’ve assembled this quick guide with things you need to know, to help you get that print piece out the door, with as few hiccups as possible. Now I’m not going to try to teach good design or layout practices, or even teach you color theory. What I will point out are the things that will help you understand what the printer is asking for, and what this means to you so that you can get that document or ad completed.
