Welcome to our Print Designer Tool. Our easy-to-use designer allows you to create print-ready proofs of your listings for the annual print Design Source Guide.
You may create as many proofs as you like. When you’ve settled on your final listings, simply proceed to the upload portal and submit your print-ready .pdf or email it directly to us at [email protected]!
Please make sure that your image is a minimum of 300 dpi. This will ensure that your image renders correctly in our print guide. See image dimensions below:
To add your image, click the image placeholder. Then, select your image file from your directory. Click the Add button.
To change the scale of your image, click the Zoom slider. Keep in mind, the resolution needs to be a minimum of 300 dpi.
To change the position of the image, click and drag anywhere on the image itself. This allows you to change which part of the image is displayed.
And, finally, be sure that your image is displayed completely within the image border area.
To add your text, click in the appropriate text box and type.
The blue borders indicate the area you have in which to display text on the listings. If your text displays outside of the overall area, the text may be cut off during printing.
Each listing includes the company name, subtitle, description, phone and website.
If you wish to include an email address, please enter it in the description area or the website area (if room).
I’m ready to see my proof!
Once you’ve created your listing, click the Approve button.
Click the Download PDF button to generate your print-ready proof. Save the file to your computer.
Then, go ahead and make additional listings by clicking ‘Design Online‘ or upload your final PDFs by clicking the “I’ve made my PDFs!” button.
