do we not sell “wholesale” graphics here?, i see no problem what he is doing, ive worked for print companies for the last 7 years and its common practice for companies to fob off the printers work as there own work, we brand menu’s and boxes of the printed materials with “designed and printed by not our company” all the time, thats what this business is all about

starting to amaze me what the standards are for this marketplace now, see decent items get rejected while items that should be rejected getting accepted

I always use paragraph, character and object styles, I also embed Grep in my paragraph styles depending on what formatting I need. Make full use of grids, guides and baselines as these are invaluable tools when designing templates. Organise the template’s layers in a methodical manner and develop your own folder structure workflow to house all collateral (images, copy, illustrations etc).

Clearly label all styles so the end user will have an indication of what they do and how they apply to the template. A good informative help file is a must especially when using Grep.

I strongly advise using Indesign over Photoshop when designing for print as Photoshops’s text tools and formatting features are no comparison to Indesign’s. Photoshop is predominately used for image editing purposes.

Thanks for this, thinking i knew alot about indesign till you mentioned grep, what exactly is grep?

Also, overprinting text over colored backgrounds is recommended.
If this is going for print. That’s kinda of wrong. It depends on the font and size. Anything really 24.5pt and above over colored backgrounds needs to be a rich black. See your printer if they have any specific call outs for rich black. Personally I use 60c, 40m, 30y, 100k.

id tent to disagree in some cases as large areas of rich black overprinting on colour will cause jobs to take longer drying and cause problems for the printers and finishers, my personal preference for rich black is 50c, 100k but suppose its personal preference, my printers have never made it mandatory to supply jobs in rich black.

over is also for small text as the printers have problems registering the plates when the, text gets smaller causing white edges, large bold text doesnt really need to be overprinted if the printer is good enough to

register the plates accurately

So much for my proof reading skills today lol. I meant I use a 40c, 30m, 20y, 100k for my rich blacks. Which is 190% ink density. As for the “problems” you mention it usually is no big deal, when you start getting close to 300% density is where you run into drying problems and such along with paper stock etc… Small type should always overprint which is why I said most type fonts 24pt above should be a rich black.

You really should always strive for rich blacks when applicable because it produces a better finished product and possibly help the printer depending on their ripping system and such.

I could go on for days and technical details about printing if anyone actually cared. Lol

yeah paper stock plays a big part, 300% ink desity sounds ok i was always taught that 240% or 250% is a maximum desity but again every printers specifications are different to each other, agree it does make the black look 1 million times better when you go rich. Ive been out of the print business for a while so my info might not be as accurate as it once was lol
