DESIGN & PRODUCTION EXPERIENCE
During the design process, there are ways to optimise and simplify production processes simply by making good informed decisions. Many designers are unaware of the additional cost that has been incurred unnecessarily due to ill prepared artworks. When materials are expensive, the last thing one would want to do is to waste material. Sometimes choosing an alternative print method could prove to be a more economical choice while still fulfilling the project requirements. A combination of these skills and a prompt decision making process can make production a smoother and pain-free process.
Artwork has been approved and it's time for print. As simple as it may sound but it's more than just click and send. There are plenty of details to keep in mind when it comes to preparing your project for printing. Have you taken note of all the do's and don'ts? Have you submitted the file as an RGB or CMYK format? Have all the necessary bleeds been added? Will you be using digital printing or Pantone offset Printing?
When possible, production consultancy should happen before or at least during the design process. Not doing so may mean major modifications to be made just before production. It's never pleasant when a designer has to inform a client that either the design has to be changed or the chosen production method has to be changed.
