Hey,

I tried this once before and didn't get very far so let's try again.

What I want is one possibly two real templates to be varied slightly. The posters / templates will be placed on drinks machines or possibly used to print on mouse mats.

Although my text will change the poster design will be static, I therefore would like it in a format that can be easily edited.

The campaign will be labelled just think and should resemble the web site at www.everymessage.net, clean plain etc

Here are some slogans for the changing text.

EveryMessage Just Think! series for mouse mat and poster campaigns,

Can you come up with a design with real people? Just changing the slogan?

Just think!

Smart people save time with EveryMessage.


Just think!

Mobile Phone calls cost twice as much per minute as a text update and they steal your time.


Just Think!

If everyone uses EveryMessage then that's thousands saved in call charges and time each year!

Just Think!

Would you make as many long phone calls if you were paying the bill?

Just Think!

When dialling a mobile could it be EveryMessage?

Get the message, Get EveryMessage


************************************************** **

The general idea is that the text will be flexible.



That's the lot.

I was kind if thinking A4 so that it could be used on a mouse mat or a notice board etc.

two more questions:

1- are you looking for 4-color (CMYK) layouts

2- What file format/program is best for you? If you're going to be updating the copy every now and then, we need to provide the file in a format that you can open and edit, correct? Or will you be going back to the designer for changes?

To add to Kootchs question if you do not require 4 colour then all photos will have to be converted to Greyscale or Monotone/Duotone (1/2 colour)

Oh...

Sorry I am a little out of my depth when it comes to images, coding no problem coloring...

Any way when I say real people I meant like the image in everymessage.net, just people on a white background, real people in a working environment. People that the people I am trying to reach will have an affinity with. So white background office workers and preferably royalty free.

I have a friend with a MAC but I would like to take these images to my local printshop to get them printed.

Tell me please what I need be it four color or what ever I just want posters in the style of th site with real people and slogans I can change.


Please bare with me, I know I am dumb when it comes to graphics.

That's Ok

If you are looking for the photos to come out in colour like as they are now you are looking at 4 colour process (Full colour).

It would help as Kootch mentioned if you can ask the Print Shop what preferred format they would like the artwork to be in I.e. Quark, EPS, Photoshop, Pagemaker, Tiff or PDF..


Thanks

Here's a sample.
I have many different "office worker" type photos I can change out if needed.

Diane,

I'm not too sure that I like the fonts or the borders, sorry.


Bill

That's about it -

The Get EveryMessage would look better on one line, if you have one more picture of an office type worker in a suit then I would appreciate it and we are there.

Are there any suggestions as to which low cost package I could buy to edit the text, and therefore which format would be best?

Thank you Bill,
