Project I: Posters of Persuasion (project1)
Turn in Requirements/Information:
• Posters can be 11 x 14, 11 x 17, 13 x 19, 18 x 24 (horizontal or vertical) and must be printed in color if color is intended.
• You must turn in your process with the final posters—10 concepts + 4 worked out poster ideas + 2 comps + final poster.
• Turn in your process in either hand-done, digital (make into pdf) and email or posted on your blog and a link sent to me.
• There are multiple places to print around town; the ones most frequently used are Paper Hog, Office Max Impress, UPS, Campus Print Shop, Sam’s Club)
• It’s typically best to save your posters as PDF before you bring to printer. You can ready your file by turning your type to outlines, accounting for bleeds, adding registration marks for trimming to the file if it needs to be trimmed, etc. When choosing the size of poster you will be printing, be aware of what sizes the particular pinter you choose can print. Be aware, also, that it will cost more if you go larger than 11 x 17 or need a bleed of color to the edges. Ask me if you have questions.
• DO NOT PRINT at the last minute. It always takes longer than you think. These are due on MONDAY, FEB. 6, so you should count on printing by Sunday. Remember, many printers are not open on the weekend. Check that too.
