Large Projects

“Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” – Michelangelo

Carving a statue is a large task, and one that should not be undertaken without a clear vision of the finished project.

The same is true of any large project, including printing projects.

Suppose I want to create a never ending calendar for family and friends with inspirational sayings and family occasion notes on it.

I need to decide on physical size to sit on a desk or side table. Will it be square or rectangular? Small as in 3 x 3 inches or large as in 6 x 8?

Will it be a daily calendar or weekly?  A daily flip calendar contains about 185 separate pages, printed on both sides, and can be the smaller 3 x 3 inch size.

A weekly calendar would need to be larger, perhaps 5 x 7 or 6 x 8, and would contain 28 pages printed on both sides or 54 pages if you print one side only and use the other side for a photo or inspirational graphic.

Just visualizing the finished project will make your decisions simple and effective.

More on large projects next week. We’ve just scratched the surface.
