I have a print job to do locally. I'm meeting the printer to agree on the
job parameters, and I want to get it right the first time. Have I missed
anything from the following checklist?
* File format? PS on CD? Are there different types of PS? (Probably PS is a
whole nother mailing list, but are there any snags, e.g. with TT fonts or
* What page formats, weight, and finish available?
* Dummy run possible?
I'll do the DTP in PM6.5 on W2K, I'll use TT fonts and "foreign"
characters. Can anyone think of any variables, pitfalls? I want to be
prepared for the unforeseen.
Sorry if this is rather boring and uncontroversial, but it has to be done.
