I am looking for a SLIGHTLY more then Frame work ( set up ) of a coupon mailer. Must be produced in Indesign!!!! I am a new user to Indesign, and its the perferred media of my vender. I am veresed in Photoshop,fireworks and ms pusblisher. My designs are good but i dont have time to learn all the (layout features of indesign). This project may turn into others ( as i will be seeking others to help as the product grows).
Define frame work:
A. I need the margins/page set for a no bleed 11x17 formate
B. I need some basic design areas planned generically out so that coupons vs ads for potential of cutting out. As well as in a few places articles.
c. Figure around 8 total pages with the back designed with fold and mailing features planned in.
D. Actual ad, and coupon art work will be done by me so the frame work must be easy to navigate. The ability to copy and past into the frame work standard images, and photoshop elements in proper formate.
F. Article areas will be half of 1/4 quarter page (11x17) so bottom or top of pages. Just a few columns. With Headline Sample Text, few sentances of sample text for sub headings, and then filler text of body. ( all must be removable, so i can copy and past in actual text)
G. Any special instruction that you feel i should have should be provided for ease of use.
( you may alter a exsisting or past project that you feel would be an outstanding COMMUNITY NEWS/COUPON mailer)
note: I am looking for a bit more then a simple template.
H. You can use various different dashed or cut lines to indicate coupons. To add interesting aspects.
I. I would like a header design, geared towards the -Maryland State- Flag,flower, family, and relate to the east coast united states homes. and geared in a old style newspaper formate. Outside page will be digital full color. [ i can provide images of homes, of the area ] All other art work must be royality free. Or generic. ( I am looking for a professional header, but not wanting it to break the bank.)
For an experienced Indesign user i understand this is not an indepth project. This project will without question lead to other Design projects as i recently purpased a Mailing list company in my area. This design problem was not expected, and not budgeted. However will have need for ( post cards, envolopes and other media)
My vender uses the high end digital document center. So 4 color process is not needed for this project.
I am opening to 1 to 4 sizes of coupons for instance an advertiser who might have an AD with ( 2 or 3 coupons in the ad) However i think other then 1 or 2 of those most will be maybe what one basic retangle. I am not sure what per say standards there are. As this is a new business.
My budget is listed at $30 to $100. I will accept bids hire but i can have my venders designer do it for a specified rate. I am also looking for ( future freelancers) who i can work with.
I am not judgemental to whom or where the design lives however you must be able to communicate well, especially with someone still on a learning curve to the industry. I am extremely interested in developing long term dependable relationships.
1)I will need estimate coupon sizes and ad sizes during the design process for sales purposes as soon as available. I assume this will be done in the early stages of the frame work.
2) I would like to see the turn around to be 10 days. Otherwise please list your turn around time.
special note: IF Heading becomes an issue of price, and time a more simple design of the header can be suggested in your bid. Simple note that your quote includes a more simple design. Simple design would be shading colors, and white knock out of the Mailer name.
InMaryland Coupons. Header still should include: Issue # and line that says: Harford Addition.
