LOOK! SOMETHING SPECIAL!!!
Happy January! A new year, a new year, a new name for ourselves, and a competition for a new newsletter format and letterhead... things are off with a bang. So as the initial shock wears off, and the dust dies down, get ready to hover over your drawing boards once again, and draw up some ideas for this CONTEST. We're a professional organization (need I remind you?) with incredible talent and ability. We've also just changed our name, and it is hoped that many members will enter their pet ideas to refine the newsletter design and make it economical in one good jump. The fluctuation of the economy has driven printing prices up, so our printing costs are exceeding the amount we take in on subscriptions.
Purpose: Design Newsletter Format and/or Stationary for the
Organization of Women Architects/Design Professionals
1. COST. Check price of printing one month's issues of about 250, but not including mailing cost. We are researching bulk mailing rates, so mailing cost should be ready to change soon anyway. Extra costs include reduction of printed matter, collating, and the cover sheet. In the past, we have used Postal Instant Press, Speedway, and Quality Offset as sources, so you night start by calling them,
2. CONVENIENCE. This should be a format easily used by all OWA/DP members who submit articles for publication.
3. COST, More...We need the most copy, or at least the same amount in the least expensive mode.
4. FLEXIBILITY. Something every monthly editor (which changes regularly as each Steering Committee member must assemble one} can use as a guide or format, which will retain interest as well
5. OTHER TIPS:
Wide black lines can't be handled well by the least expensive printing techniques. - The least expensive printing required a 3/8" margin all around the text. While these are limitations of the technique, we are forced by financial necessity to honor them. - Newsletter sould be a convenient "purse or pocket" size. - Each page should be dated for future reference - If you are designing base sheets, a once-a-year printing cost is incurred; likewise for a stick-on type logo. Only figure this in yearly, not once-a-month.
