Pocket Pal 20th Edition

Recommended by prepress houses and printers everywhere, the 20th edition of the Pocket Pal is something every designer needs. Here are some of the handy-dandy bits of information in the 256 pages sandwiched between its CMYK covers:

  • History and Evolution of Printing
  • Introduction to the Printing Processes
  • Prepress – typography, copy and art preparation, imaging for graphic arts, image assembly and imposition, digital prepress, and plate making
  • Printing – processes, digital presses, printing inks, and statistical process control
  • Post press – binding and finishing
  • Paper – from pulping through manufacture, characteristics, grades and more
  • Graphic Art Terms
  • International Paper Printing Papers
Individual copies can be purchased for $24 through FlexoDepot or buy copies for your entire design staff directly from the PocketPal web site. Trust me, your printer will thank you.

[Once again, thanks go out to Bob at Skylab for the tip!]
