I've been asked to help put together a proposal to reduce the amount of money we're spending to produce all of our paper documentation, including policy and procedure manuals, brochures, newsletters, and forms. I have a lot of questions, starting with forms design:
Do any of you design paper forms as part of your job?
What tools do you use? What is the best tool for the job? (We produce multi-part NCR forms, pre-printed with variable customer information.)
Have any of you heard of or used software called "Paris"? Can it be used to create documents other than forms?
Is there a separate discussion list for forms designers?
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
