Design Suggestion

The Hobby Directory will be produced in several formats (traditional press, electronic and digital press) but please design your ad with the least quality print resolution format in mind: digital printing.

The bulk printed/free distribution at Breyerfest will be printed by traditional magazine press printing, but the print on demand online ordered magazine printing will be through a digital printing distributor. Digital printing is darker & less contrasty details such as fine hairs do not show up. Darker contrasts, super fine details and tiny text that you can see on your screen may not necessarily show up as you intended. Please keep that in mind and design accordingly.

There are many design articles online for designing with digital printing in mind. Again that is the lowest resolution format. The 1500 free copies will be produced more traditionally.
