Designing for print can be a tricky business. Matching what you see on the screen to a commercially printed end product is never as simple as just pressing the “print” button. Even with graphic design training and many years of printing experience, it doesn’t mean you get it right every time. Fortunately The Print Handbook is on hand to teach and provide an ongoing reference point for assessing how what you do in your print files will affect what comes off the press.

Andy Brown, the creator of The Print Handbook, states: “The tools of a graphic designer are not just the type tool, selection tool or layers panel. The real tools of a designer are the printing press, the paper, the ink. Understand those and you understand the true limits of design on paper.

The Handbook covers a wide range of topics laid out in a compact easy to follow format. If you are interesting in purchasing your own copy, check in out HERE!
