We covered five of Copresco's seven important habits
for highly successful documents in the April and May issues of Overnight
Now that your masterpiece is completed, you just need to follow these last two rules for sending your job to Copresco or anywhere else:
Send us all the screen and printer fonts used
in the document. And don't forget any fonts used in EPS
Copresco maintains an extensive library of fonts. However, other companies have designed or licensed their own fonts and they may not be identical to those you use.
Type foundries also regularly change their fonts. Just a simple tweak of kerning or a new dingbat creates a changed font. Any font differences can cause type to reflow, lines to be cut off, hyphenations to change, etc
Make sure all files and artwork are furnished. If you have mixed applications, be sure to send us all the Mac and PC files.
Along with your electronic files, please include graphic files (Tiff, EPS, etc.) and artwork that needs to be scanned, if appropriate. Software version numbers are also helpful to our production department.
Include samples of any preprinted materials to be incorporated in your book and delivery information if you're sending us the copies.
And...please provide any special instructions and review them with your Copresco production coordinator if necessary.
Review your printer proofs before sending us the final
version. Remember, if you can't get it to print, we may not be able to either.
You may have finished your work of art, but our work is just beginning.
Please send us a complete copy of the document, including page layouts with artwork, photos and order of printing.
We will check our production proof against your original copy.
Don't change your file after you have given us the final proof
Have someone else do the final proofreading. It's virtually impossible to effectively proof your own work.
Delete any old digital versions and throw away your old hard copies.
You now have all of Copresco's seven document

Adobe has identified some major text display problems
with the recently released PostScript 4.4 driver for Windows 95/98.
If you purchased FrameMaker 6.0 for Windows 95/98, this driver was auto-matically installed on your hard drive.
Use of Base 35 fonts results in unhinted outlines or may create bitmaps. Adobe says this is a cata-strophic problem if you are generating PDF files using Base 35 fonts. The text may not display with full quality and is not at all searchable.
Adobe recommends that current users delete 4.4 and reinstall the previous 4.3.1 driver. See the Internet address below.
To reinstall the Adobe PS 4.3.1 printer driver, point your web browser to: www.adobe.com/support/downloads/5b22.htm
To check the availability of the forthcoming 4.1.1 ATM patches and Windows 95/98 4.4.1 driver, go to the Copresco links page.
Adobe's fix for the 4.4 problem is to upgrade Adobe
Type Manager to version 4.1.1. Adobe says this should be available "in a matter
A free updater for ATM Deluxe to ATM 4.1.1 will be available as well as a free version of ATM Lite 4.1.1. A PS 4.4.1 driver is also in the works.
We don't know exactly when or how these updates and patches will be made available. We suggest that you check the current status at the Copresco website links page at the URL listed below.
Copresco will be closed Monday and Tuesday, July 3rd and 4th, for Independence Day. Have a good holiday!
