Design should without a doubt consider the target audience. It should be one of the main factors in your whole process. I beileve that good design is universal To an extent, yes—but design needs to be fit for purpose. What is good design for one situation isn't necessarily good for another. Take for example the branding for an event. Is this a high ...

The ONLY way to find out how to set this up is to talk to your printer, as there are many different ways to do embossing / debossing. USUALLY for normal 2d embossing, a plain colour or vector should be supplied as a layer, this is then converted to a tool for processing. HOWEVER the rather impressive example you included would have to be pressed in a die, ...

Instead of shopping at a place like Officemax / Amazon if you want something quality and specific then go to a higher end paper company like French Paper or Neenah Paper. If they don't have what you're looking for they can probably help you find it or craft it for you. An alternative is also looking at a high end print shop like Mama's Sauce that can do ...

The texture you're talking about comes from the screen on which the wet paper slurry is poured, allowing the majority of the water to drain away. It comes in two basic flavours: laid (most of the wires in the screen go only one direction, usually horizontally across the page, with only a few wires going the other direction) or wove (more like window ...

As a general rule, 300PPI at your desired size is an acceptable resolution, it could be double that for high-end products or half that may be acceptable for ...

In this day of 1TB (and larger) external drives for less than $100, not to mention all the cloud space/dropbox etc. available, there's absolutely no reason not to have at least two versions of every image. Especially when most web images will (and should) be under 100kb.

The cost of disk space is insignificant if you value your work. Buy an external hard drive, save your RAW files. If you really adjusted your RAW files export your JPG at the original resolution. Use theese for print. Use very little compression, maximum quality. Make a batch action on photoshop or whatever program you have to make a copy at lower size, ...

The optimum way to do what you're seeking is to create the book in InDesign, as you mentioned, but... 1) The text should all be done in InDesign, not Illustrator or Photoshop. Your file size will be much smaller, you'll have a much easier time editing the text, and your printed product will be better. Illustrator and PS are hugely powerful, but page layout ...

Ok, just found an answer to my own question, from my printer: "Generally speaking about 25 sheets (50pp) is recommended but we have done as little as 15 sheets (30pp) and because it is PUR it stays together. Anything less should be saddle stitched." This is referring to around 100-120gsm stock.

You simply can not prepare an exact two dimensional file for a Sphere. This has being the problem for making acurate maps of the earth and visual apealing at the same time.
