The Print Handbook Giveaway: 3 X Free Copies for Our Lucky Readers

The Print Handbook Giveaway: 3 X Free Copies for Our Lucky Readers

Ever thought of questions like which rich black is the best or how small can I print text so it is still readable when it comes to print design? Have you been searching for a reference book that you could use for your own design work?

The Print Handbook Giveaway: 3 X Free Copies for Our Lucky Readers

Today’s your lucky day!

We are excited to collaborate with The Media Collective to giveaway 3 Free copies of “A print handbook for designers“. This little handbook is crammed with stuff which we think you’ll find very helpful. Especially if you’re a designer. The goal is to help you see if your ideas will translate well when printed, as well as show what should be possible from your local press.

Hopefully, it will cut down on the guesswork that happens when your job goes from screen to print.

What is The Print Handbook for Designers?

The handbook is printed with 4 process colours, plus one Pantone spot colour. It includes four different types of paper (uncoated, silk, gloss and the cover) and has a one colour gate folded cover with a foil.

Print handbook


Some of the questions that could be answered by this handbook include:

  • What dpi can I get away with?
  • Do colours print differently on different papers?
  • Is an ellipsis elliptical?
  • How faint can I make some text so it’s still readable?
  • What’s the best file type to use?
  • And more…

    Well, I’ll use the Print Handbook, to learn more about colors, size of the printing materials, and stuff like that.

    • Kassandra,
    • July 5, 2011

    Many of the questions in this book are ones I have asked myself many times and it would be a relic to me in my design and creative processes. As a university student it would be beyond awesome and give me an added perception for print!

    • Joris Delvaux,
    • July 5, 2011

    I love Design and printing and the book may help for my last year of school in multimedia because there we have to print a lot. And maybe I can be the best of my class with this perfect book.

    I have learned a lot about graphic design from the internet and still I am in pursuit to learn more, so now I am switching on to Print design but there are no specific modules which i can find uptill now for getting guidance in print design field. I have been designing print media for my college but sometimes i face lot of problems since print is totally different from what we see on our moniters. I hope this book can help me to refine my designs for perfect printing results. And i would like to thank OXP for bringing most relevant feebies for we people.

  21. /

    I’d like to win one of these cause I’m always forgetting those little details and end up messing up 12 times before getting it right. And I’ll probably buy one if I don’t win it!

  28. /

    Anyone worth their weight in graphic design knows that you can spend more time thinking of how to solve problems over simple things. A good reference speeds up your work flow.

    Good luck to everyone.

  29. /

    Working at a print shop, this will definitely clear some things up so I don’t have to interrupt other creatives’ workflows to ask a question at peak hours. Another sweet book to dig into and add to my collection.

  30. /

    hi! this promo item is wonderful, especially for me — being a freelance book designer, i often ponder on
    some problems and questions about print out results of my work. This print handbook would surely help me with my concerns, and would greatly help me hone my skills more and come up with much better output.

  31. /

    This would be a great book to have in the office. A perfect reference tool to be able to used when helping clients with their printing issues & designs.

    • Rich,
    • July 7, 2011

    This would be really useful to me and my co-designers, not being from a print background this would be very helpful indeed.

    • Ruth,
    • July 8, 2011

    This will be written roof that print isn’t dead!!! What better way then to make sure all things printed looks fantastic!!!

    • Pradeep Indika,

    • Lisyl,
    • July 9, 2011

    I am more on web graphics but do design sometimes for print. I have still many questions and concerns regarding on print design and I am sure this will help me in a handful. The book will surely guide me in better designing for print.

    • Robert Cristobal,
    • July 10, 2011

    With all the tons of resources available through the internet with just a click of the mouse, this handbook would surely save me some surfing time. Nothing beats information resource of this magnitude when you can own it for yourself, compiled and ready to use. I can make use of this as a visual FAQ where I would just need to turn the pages to any topic under the sun that pertains to print design. And by the way, I can only “make use” of this when I win and get a copy for myself. :-)

  32. /

    The book will be my guide in finishing my jobs at the office! So many troubles with printing stuff lately. (-_-)
