Print Process

See Web Process ┬╗┬╗

When you work with KTD Creative (KTD), you will be working with a team of dedicated professionals who follow a process for print and web projects. We use Basecamp to manage all of our clients’ projects and a dedicated Project Manager.

We listen intently to clients, perform the necessary research, and produce outstanding work. Below is how we work:

Print Process

Step 1
Kickoff meeting in person
KTD is committed to learning about you, your organization, your mission, your objectives, and your goals. After the contract has been signed and deposit check received, we sit down for a face-to-face discussion about your projects. Having established this understanding, we can specifically define your needs.

Step 2
Design of two concepts
Concepts are presented via email of PDF discussed with a conference call or in person at either client or at KTD offices. Logos are typically three concepts, ID Systems get two concepts (letterhead, business card, mailing label, and envelope).

Step 3
Finalize design direction once concept is selected
Client to approve by email that concept is approved. Layout to begin.

Step 4
Layout of text and images
Once client has approved all copy including any charts, tables, or other information graphics, we ask that a master Word document be provided to us. In the case of an intricate information graphic, client is asked to provide a sketch that we can create the information graphic from. The key is receiving all materials at the same time.

Step 5
Two rounds of revisions
The revisions will be provided to client in two sets of PDFs of single-pages and spreads (left-and-right facing pages).

Step 6
Print Management

Print management includes procuring three print estimates for the client, obtaining a print dummy for client review, preparing files for print and attending a local press check. KTD also has a final PDF prepared for the client.
