I tend to use the PDF version to do most of my printing. I create the
documents and then make a PDF version that can be printed on any system,
with or without LO installed.

So if you make a PDF version with "clickable" options, make sure they
can be printed without any problems.

As I stated earlier, most professional places prefer PDF files for their
printing, when they do low count prints.  I tend to print the brochures
myself, but sometimes it is worth the extra costs from a printing
service, since they can use a machine to do the folding.  Every fold 150
brochures at one time?  I did andfor heavy stock paper it is worth the
cost for the machine folding.

Also, some printing services would charge more for the "official"
brochure than the "community" brochure, due to the large block of ink on
the "front" panel.

Hmm, how about it we labelled it in such a way as to make it clear to people that the .pdf version was an electronic version specifically optimized for electronic posting and not for printing? We could list the reasons why it is not preferable to use this version for printing ... underlined links throughout the brochure which would make for an ugly print!

We can then advise that anyone wishing to print any of the print-optimized version to take care of this on their own. At least this will allow the people printing the .odf version to have a little more control over the .pdf version for their print jobs.

Do you think this would be OK?



For a posted brochure, we could get a lot more info, since we do not need to have it formatted to the folded paper. Also, the layout of the panels will need to be reordered, since the top/front panel is actually on the far right, while most people read things left to right.
