Create a resource booklet which introduces the basic facts about the major forms of commercial printing. Write the copy in your own words so that it may serve as your personal reference guide in the future. Add diagrams and images to aid in clarifying each process.
Refer to these sources as only a part of your research:
- Printing Terms
- Printing Vocabulary
- Printing Terms Guide
- Printing Processes
- Printing Techniques Interactive
- The Print Guide
- Printing Methods
As a minimum your booklet must contain information about the following:
- Offset Lithography (Litho)
- Flexography (Flexo)
- Letterpress (foundry type, wood type)
- Rotogravure (gravure)
Also as a minimum, include the major special effects printing processes:
- Embossing (and de-bossing)
- Aqueous Coating (varnish)
The size and format of your brochure are up to you.
Incorporate good typographic and layout practices as well as considering how your booklet would be printed commercially.
