This is excellent advice, especially for a novice like me.

It sure hasn't taken you long to get up to speed on the "RetouchPro everybody helps anybody when they can" culture.

Welcome aboard and thanks very much.


P.S. When you get a few minutes, you might want to introduce yourself over in the Salon (non-tech) Forum, in this thread.

Jak --
I've had some postcards and some tri-fold brochures printed in the past, and I thought they were excellent quality. But no one ever mentioned Quark Express, support files, or fonts of any kind.
You submitted a PShop file for the camera ready design, but probably had them do any of the text needed for the brochure - right? When we submit a brochure with both the text and the images done the way we want them, the printers will usually need a PageMaker (what I use) or Quark file with separate files for each of the type font(s) that you have chosen to use for your text as well as your image files.

I still have a lot to learn about printing, and am grateful for the good information in this thread.

CJ -

Yes, I supplied images and a mockup of the layout and text I wanted and they did the rest.
