In 2004 and 2008, when the conference was held in my home state – Oklahoma, I was the person in charge of collecting ads for the souvenir journal, as well as putting them together.
This year the conference was in Kansas City and a contractor was hired. The prior contractor completed the cover, but was unable to finish the job. Upon turning in my two assets from my home state, I was asked to take over.
As the original printer’s deadline had passed, I contacted a print shop local to me and was able to obtain a reasonable rate for last minute printing of the journals; and necrology and rededication ceremony programs and bookmarks.
Necrology Programs and Bookmarks
I fired up Adobe InDesign. I have not found any Mac native software that rivals this program…suggestions? I attempted to use Pixelmator for image optimization, but found that the pdf exports tended to show outlines and shadows in multilayer transparent work that Photoshop does not. I did use Pixelmator for non-import exports and to design the back cover.
