DESIGN Design Report The final design may seem very simple to the designer, but it can be difficult to decipher when someone in the production process starts to work with it. To make the design flow smoothly through production, details must be provided on how it was developed and the expected end result. Some programs have report features to list details about a file, others use comment layers within the file itself. The following list identifies what information should be included in the design report: Final file name(s) All placed full resolution and FPO images Mechanical name (die drawing used to build the design) including the date and source of the template Application/version of files Fonts used Colors used (CMYK, PMS, Custom) Common and/or base layers. Instructions for vignettes or effects 6.2 Release to Prepress Files to be released to prepress must be supplied in their entirety including all supporting files (linked/embedded high resolution images, fonts, etc.). The most reliable way to verify all necessary supporting files have been supplied is to: Copy the files to another computer, or copy files to a different directory or volume on the local machine. Open document with all supplied fonts loaded, and all supplied images linked. Output full color, full size proof (tile if necessary). Another option is to convert all type to outlines and print a PDF document, which is essentially the same as creating a PDF from a distilled postscript file. 6.2: Release to Prepress: Supply files to be released in their entirety including all supporting files.
