It's recommended to start new chapters on the recto page of a manuscript, as it establishes a predictable flow for the reader to follow. The resulting occasional blank pages are actually a part of establishing this rhythm, making the divisions between chapters even more distinct. This recommendation is listed in rule 1.48 requires login of the Chicago Manual ...

Can I use any type of ink, even super expensive ones to fill an ink cartridge? That would depend on the printer and what ink is allowed. Most inks are designed to only run on certain types of machines and that is why you see so many. You will probably run into issues. Using a typical inkjet printer, I don't see any way you won't be clogging the ...

Look for/post at job boards and online portfolios, make inquiries with the ones you prefer. http://forum.deviantart.com/jobs/offers/ There are also "digital webbing" and "penciljack", but I can't post the link as I have to register here and build a reputation to post more than 1 URL. On these you'll probably find more artists in the "American" style ...

Start by going to your local comic book shop. Many local comic book stores have artists come in regularly for signing and sketches. A lot of employees might also moonlight as illustrators. They may not be Manga but they might be able to do it or know someone that does. If you already have an artist in mind, drop them an email or twitter. Say you want to ...

how would one go about it? Pretty much like you'd hire any professional. Ask around. Get recommendations. Look at previous work. Interview, etc. any costs associated with it? Again like any professional, you'd ask for an estimate. They'd provide that to you. And what are the publication costs, in such an endeavor? From free (self publish ...

The cheapest way to do it is with pantone gold. But that is only a avarage way to achieve gold. The real deal is to use «Hot Stamping». A heated die presses the gold-foil onto the stationary. Which results in a realy cool gold effect. The downside of this are the costs because you need a separate die for every size. So if you have two products with two ...

My opinion... Top Card The wing-like logo is much too large. Cut it by 50% and it'll convey more upper scale design. Large logos SCREAM at the viewer. You probably don't want that. Are they supposed to be back-to-back Ks? If they are, the line weights seem reversed to me - they should be thicker in the middle tapering to the outside. But that's just my ...

This is obviously an opinion-based answer to an opinion-based question so I hope you take it with a grain of salt. First Design: I don't like business cards that don't have an obvious front and back. Your first design feels more like a club flyer than a business card for this reason; it doesn't fit my mental limits of what a business card should be and do. ...

If it's staying on your PC, MS's Symbol and Wingdings fonts provide some good choices. If you want something a little more modern with a nice set of icons and a really permissive license, why not use Font Awesome? There are some other icon sets out there - Glyphicons and Entypo come to mind, that were made for the screen but, depending on the icon and your ...

As I know there is no software that natively supports hexa-color space (e.g. CMYKOG by Pantone or one you mentioned). You can take this advantage manually via multichannel mode in Photoshop. But it is really tricky and requires constant color separation and tests. As for desktop printers which use 6 colors. This printers have own color separation and RIP ...

I usually adjust for ink limits at the same time I convert my images to cmyk as part of my colour correcting workflow. I use the Info panel and with one of the read outs to total ink. Then when I am adjusting my colour curves or levels I can watch for total ink coverage. I also forget to do this a lot, and catch my mistakes in acrobat or InDesign and have ...

You could also use the WMF format. This format supports vectors and is devloped by Microsoft. Besides MS Office it's not very useful, but the only possibility in MS Office to use vector-shapes form other software like illustrator.

It sounds like you're doing a double french fold. It's possible that you'll find templates on the websites of some larger printing firms and online print sites. Whether you'll find one that fits your particular need is another question. When it comes to less-common items like this, templates are also far less common. The foldfactory site is an excellent ...

In paragraph-formatted text, there will generally be about half a word of useless space in each line, and about half a line of semantically-useless empty space following each paragraph. In text with long paragraphs, wider columns will reduce the amount of space wasted on line breaks without overly increasing the space wasted on paragraph breaks. In text ...
