Prepare your creations to get a perfect and professional printed document!

About this course

Ever needed to design a file for printing? On this course, I'll show you how to create a commercial postcard and prepare it for printing. We'll be working on Adobe illustrator but the same concepts can also be applied in Photoshop.

The course is divided into different lessons so you can follow along easily.

What project are we going to develop?

On this course, we will create a business postcard to promote a fictional restaurant. But the concepts can be applied for any project you'd like to print.

Each concept is explained clearly so you can understand the basic requirements to prepare a file for printing and also the differences between the printed design and a digital one. 

Who’s this course for? Requirements

For this course you don't need any previous skills, all the concepts are explained in a very basic way so you can easily follow along even if you have little experience.

We'll be using Illustrator CC but if you have a previous version of the software, the changes shouldn't influence the concepts behind each lesson.
