    Hi everyone,

    Please could someone help tell me how the creation of a printed document is done, I have an idea, but not too sure if it is right.

    1. Talk with client to see what exactly they are looking for.
    2. Copy creation - Client supplies copy or copywriters write copy for job
    3. Concept - Do some creative concepts (layouts with placement text) for them to look at to see if they like them.
    4. Studio (Production) - When client approves concept (layout) then job is passed to artworker to make the job print ready.

    Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. :icon_smile:

    1 - Agree concept
    2 - Copy is drafted
    3 - Copy is proofed
    4 - Copy is signed off ( so important to get this done before putting anything together )
    5 - Design is drafted (specifications should be obtained from printers in regards to bleeds doc size etc)
    6 - Design is proofed
    7 - Design is finalised
    8 - Final proof prior to printing
    9 - Print
    10 - QC sign off
