About This Class

Knowing how to properly setup a file for print can save you time, frustration, and more importantly, money. Avoid those tricky print problems you didn't see coming, or that setup fee from your local printer.

In this class, I am going to be showing you how to properly setup a business card file for print. Whether you use Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign, I will show you the best practices to easily set up files and make sure you get them to the printers without any unsuspected issues.

You may already know how to setup things like Bleed, Margins, or Die Lines, but chances are, you'll pick up a few tricks to improve your workflow. If you've never heard of those terms, even better, this class is for you!

Wow this class must be boring right? WRONG! I've done my best to keep this class light, fast, easy, and fun. Not to mention the project should be fun, and as always, I have an amazing contest!

Why do you need a business card in 2015 with the wonderful internet? Because every once and a while you might just take your body away from your computer and run into a real human being! I know! And when you do, make sure you stand out with a top quality card!

Did I mention there is an amazing contest?
