Even in this web-driven age, the humble Brochure remains the most economical way to get your company message into the hands of prospective clients. The advent of the Internet has made distribution of your Brochure much more efficient (and economical), as you can now make any Brochure available as a PDF download from your web site or send it as an e-mail attachment. The old rules still apply – a badly designedBrochure is worse than having no Brochure at all. At Omega Dezine, our designers have vast experience of producing eye-catching Brochures, and if they have already designed your logo, are keenly aware of your corporate philosophy. Who better to create your latest advertising artwork?
What we need from you
Brochure copy in digital form (Microsoft Word, TXT, e-mail, etc). We also require any artwork that you want added as well as any photography that you have on hand. You may wish to utilize stock photography – additional licensing fees may apply – and we can help you with that through several agencies that we have subscriptions with. We’ll also need a vector based version of your logo (EPS, Adobe Illustrator, etc). If you do not have a vector version available, we can always create one, using your source files, as a Logo Repair. Additional charges apply.
Our Brochure Design package includes the creation of your Brochure artwork and delivery of a print-ready imposition file. You’ll end up with access to all the digital files you require, including the formats that you can use for printing your Brochure utilizing your local printer. Included are:
EPS (Encapsulated Postscript) & AI Files
The vector based source files of any design work by Omega Dezine. This file is generally the format used by quality printers. For color matching accuracy of spot color brochures, we use the Pantone Matching System (PMS). For print color reference, Pantone Color Guides are available at better local printers. These files are editable, but require access to professional design software such as Adobe Illustrator. For full color brochures, we will set up your artwork in CMYK. This will be necessary if you want us to add color photography to your Brochure Design.
PDF (Adobe Portable Document Files) Formats
Cross platform files do not require any elaborate software to open other than the free PDF reader available from Adobe (chances are you already have the reader installed in your web browser). These print-ready files are also web friendly and can be stored, and made available for download from your website. These files are also small enough to be e-mailed. PDF files contain all the fonts and artwork that your printer will need. May be editable depending on font licensing.
Depending on the type of brochure you order, we may also supply you with Quark and/or In Design files complete with supporting artwork (photography, etc) in either Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop formats.
Other Formats Available
PDF Files (set up for letterhead size)
Adobe Portable Document Files are compatible with most computer applications and software. Can be used for internal office use and/or printing, but if your artwork bleeds, you may have to have a separate version created to compensate for the margins and live area of most personal and office desktop printers. Nominal charges may apply.
TIFF and/or JPG Files
Sometimes requested by online printing firms who are ‘gang printing’ your brochure on a large sheet with other similar printing jobs. While not recommended by Omega Dezine, this is a common method employed by discount printers. For online printers who utilize vector-based files for high quality results
