Appendix . Output: Sending Your Files to Print

Getting It Printed

Creating artwork on your computer is really only half the process. It’s not like you’ll be inviting everyone to your home or office to see what you’ve created on your screen—a client might not be too keen on that. Rather, after your design is complete and approved, you’ll need to send it to a printer to create the final piece.

Naturally, each job is different. In some cases, your final product will be a website or a PDF, but most jobs require a printed piece as the final product. This chapter specifically covers jobs that are printed by an offset printer.
