History of the Calling Card

Filed Under (letterpress, Printing) by admin on 09-09-2008

Here is a link to a great article about Calling Cards. Also, here is an excerpt:

“During the 1800’s and early 1900’s the practice of “calling” upon or visiting one’s relatives, friends, and acquaintances was a middle and upper class social ritual governed by countless rules and traditions. Central to visiting etiquette was the use of the calling card. Every gentleman kept a ready supply of calling cards with him to distribute upon his visits. When calling upon a friend, a gentleman gave his card to the servant answering the door. The servant would be holding a silver tray and the card would be placed upon it. If the person the gentleman was calling upon was home, the servant would take the card to them and they would come meet the gentleman. If the person being called upon was not home, the servant would leave the card for when they returned.

Generally upon a gentleman’s initial visit to a home, he would simply leave a card and then depart. If the new acquaintance wished to formally visit with him, he or she would send a card in return. If no card was sent, or the return card was sent in an envelope, this signaled that the new acquaintance did not wish for a personal visit to occur. This signal (the card in an envelope) could indeed be sent after any visit in which the visited party no longer wished to be called upon by this particular person. It was basically the well-mannered brush off. A calling card was also used when a gentleman was desirous to see someone at a hotel or parlor. He would send up his card while he waited in the reception area or office for his acquaintance or business associate to come and greet him.

A man’s calling card was simple and plain in design. About the size of a playing card (they were toted about in a carrying case tucked in one’s breast pocket), they bore a man’s name, and later on, his address as well. The name was written in the center, sometimes with a middle initial and sometimes not. A young man did not preface his name with “Mr.” A military officer included his rank and branch of service. A physician could include his professional title, as in “Dr. Robert Smith,” or “Robert Smith M.D.” But honorary titles such as Prof., Hon., and Esq. were not acceptable. The card sometimes also included the name of the gentleman’s club or fraternal organization a man belonged to.” Read more here.

If you don’t know, PDFs have now become the standard file type that printer received for output on a press. Within a small PDF file is all the information needed to create 4 color separation, spot colors, and registration information. No longer is there the need to “collect” your original file with all the fonts and photos and whatnot, a single PDF can usually handle the job now. The only thing to keep in mind is: A PDF if ONLY as good as the file that created it!

(PMS) The Pantone Matching System

(The following is from a wikipedia article)
The Pantone Color Matching System expands upon existing color reproduction systems such as the CMYK process. The CMYK process is a standardized method of printing color by using four inks—cyan, magenta, yellow and black. The majority of the world’s printed material is produced using the CMYK process. The Pantone system is based on a specific mix of pigments to create new colors—referred to as spot colors. The Pantone system also allows for many ‘special’ colors to be produced such as metallics and fluorescents. While most of the Pantone system colors are beyond the printed CMYK gamut, those that are possible to simulate through the CMYK process are labeled as such within the company’s guides.

Pantone colors are described by their allocated number (typically referred to as for example ‘PMS 130′). PMS colors are almost always used in branding and have even found their way into government legislation (to describe the colors of flags). In January 2003, the Scottish Parliament debated a petition (reference PE512) to refer to the blue in the Scottish flag (saltire) as ‘Pantone 300′. Countries such as Canada and South Korea and organizations such as the FIA have also chosen to refer to specific Pantone colors to use when producing flags. U.S. States including Texas have set legislated PMS colors of their flags[4].

How to REALLY submit your artwork to be printed

Filed Under (Design, Printing) by admin on 01-02-2008

PDF is best!

Ok, so way back in the old days (like, the early 2000′s) if one was going to submit digital artwork to be printed they needed to do several things:

  1. Save whatever file they had created it in (Illustrator, Quark, Photoshop, etc…) in the correct version and type that the printer needed.
  2. Collect all the linked image files, fonts and and printer/color settings that the file would require. If they were lucky their application could do this for them. If they were a little less lucky they could purchase a 3rd party app like “Flightcheck.” If they didn’t have that… well they ‘a huntin’ for fonts they would go!
  3. Once they had all the files ready they might have been able to email it… but, all those files were probably to big to fit in an email so they’d have to zip or stuff it and send if over to the printer via FTP or on an old fashioned CD.
  4. The designer would then cross their fingers and hope for the best.

THOSE DAYS ARE OVER PEOPLE!

We here at A2Z will now tell you all you need to know about sending your files to us:

  1. Make a hi-res CMYK PDF, with 1/8″ bleed if the artwork requires a bleed. (Google or email us on how to do this if you don’t know how)
    sample business card
    This is how your file should look if it has a bleed.
  2. LOOK at the PDF before you send it. It should look just how you want it to come out printed.
  3. Send it to us via email, FTP, or yousendit.com!

That’s it!
