A Print Handbook and Process Guide from The Media Collective

The Media Collective created this guide for designers to help them through the printing process.

Design, printhandbook, MediaCollective

A Print Handbook for Designers answers questions like "Which rich black is the best," "What dpi can I get away with," and the often illusive "What's the best file type to use?" And it covers topics like Pantone versus CMYK, paper sizes, overprinting, trapping, and folds. The nicest feature? Instead of having to google for q&a, all the information you need is easily accessible in a concise handbook—a handy addition to any freelancer's or designer's desktop.
