@ICanHasKittenz In Illustrator? Simply make 2 artboards, it won't change the art. USe the artboard tool and shrink the exiting artboard to half size, then either copy it (with the copy artwork option UNchecked) or draw a second artboard to fill the other half of the artwork.
This retains the bleeds and the artwork within the bleeds
They don't have to be side by side artboards. They'll still be 2 PDF pages
I just copied the single artboard, reduced it by 50% to the left, Then copied the single artboard again and reduces by 50% to the right. Then delete the original artboard (or just print/save as PDF artboards 2 and 3)
@Joojaa yes, but it's easier to explain with non-overlapping artboards. Then once comfortable with that, the user usually figures out that they can overlap and not be a problem. I was shooting for lowest common denominator.
um it wasn't really a show. One of our large distributors was opening a new office in Tampa. It was pretty dead there but might still have been worth it
We got to meet the new people that are going to run that office which is always good since they'll be doing a lot of business for us. Also a higher level guy showed up from San Jose, CA and was very excited to see our stuff. He just came over from a different distributor that doesn't carry us and his first sell in San Jose was a few of our readers last week to a site in Washington state.
Him and I had a good conversation about marketing and the distributors website as well. He wants to make sure our white pages, brochures, and product images are on it which is something I've been trying to get done
no on the printer level. IF the printer generated their own barcodes in house like some printers do they could print an svg overlay on the cover or interior and it would work. BUT thats all on the printer level
The only way I know of is with invisible inks / flourescents and its very costly requiring special ink, particular papers, and specialized readers. Even then the amount of light used to read it can cause the lines to "bleed" in to each other
I didn't want MY answer chosen.. but I felt everyone spent quite a bit of time explaining how to improve HIS project and it was really mostly valuable to HIM... to not select an answer seemed, well, ungrateful to me. I merely commented "all that effort int eh answers and you can't pick a correct one?" He responded with "Scott perhaps if you weren't so rude I would." I was taken back by that.
and I DO get that we don't want to promote any type of "elitism" in the questions. new users should be as welcome as more advanced users. I just don't know how to draw that line somewhere. If it's in the help files, perhaps it's not a valid question?? jsut spouting off I guess :)
Like I posted, perhaps I'm jsut getting bitter in my old age :)
Well, I KNOW I'm not the most compassionate and nurturing individual at times. So I may actually not be helping things overall.. I mean.. I try... graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/37938/3270 but it's like hitting a brick wall at times.
anyway... just amazed by users at times. Guess I'm a different sort.
So I've realize the culdesack I live on is a bit odd... everyone to the left of my house is 15+ years older than me. Everyone to the right of my house is 15 years younger than me. Guess I bought the right house.
