Print Production

Print or Web, you can't be good at both... can you?

Print and web production are very different. Fortunately, because I focus on the technical aspects and tend to subcontract the more creative work, I've had the opportunity to master both. I've been working in the professional print industry since 1993. I know a trap from a bleed, and promise clean, professional output no matter what your medium.

Document Design

I love text formatting, I dream of charts, and I breathe print. Spot colours? Bleeds? Duotones? This is my lexicon.

Send me your content and ideas, and I will create a professional, print-ready document. I can work with your print shop or mail house of choice, making sure there's no surprise charges or delays. Variable data, bar codes, unique bindery requirements—no problem!

  • Annual reports
  • Survey results
  • Marketing materials
  • Sell sheets
  • Stationery
  • etc

Production and Project Management

Designers should focus on design, and not worry about the minute details of their print document. When you've done the fun part and wowed your client with your design, hand it off to me for the boring part. I will assemble the document into its final form, discuss the best and most cost-efficient print methods, and prepare the file for trouble-free printing. No calls from printers for a missing font or bleed, no missed deadlines.

I also specialize in variable data (mail merge) documents, combining your design with your client's data. There's no need for low-quality inkjet labels stuck on to mailouts anymore, with today's technology everything can be personalized and integrated into your artwork. From addressing and barcodes to variable image and design elements. Give me a challenge!
