Prepare to Print: 101

Did you send your first file to press 15 years ago? Are you new to the industry? Are you switching from offset to mostly digital? Do you just want to know what pre-press is?

Whether you want to learn more about your craft or are looking to be introduced to a new design form, join the AIGA West Michigan community on Thursday, August 17th for our Prepare to Print: 101 event.

This event will center around a panel discussion and is open to anyone—all levels, all students, all people. Come ready with questions for our panel of experts and learn about:

+ Finding and working with a good print partner
How to spec a project
Tips to get the most out of your print budget
How to avoid the most common printing blunders
Color, type, and pagination issues
And much more!
