I will be at a conference on Thursday—where I am excited to learn more about the state of social media and interactive marketing.
And Friday, I'm taking the day off to go camping sans my little one. Looking forward to some time off (of work and mommy duty) in the great outdoors!
Since I don't have much time to write, I have a book/resource recommendation for everyone who touches design or production in this industry. It's a resource that, quite literally, I couldn't live without.
It contains the following tidbits:
- Measurement Conversion Charts
- Copyright and Trademark Standards
- Proofreading and Copywriting Symbols
- Imaging and Color Info
- Paper Details
- Bindings and Folds
- Envelopes and Folder Sizes
- Packaging Die Lines
- Info on Postal Standards
- Bar Code Standards
- Printing and Finishing Info
I have found if I need to quickly reference something, it typically has the answer I seek. Check it out!
