TOOLS OFtrade THE PAGE SETUP

8.5’ x 11’/ Letter size Bleeds/ .125’ Margins/ 3p0 all around

A FEW UNWRITTEN RULES: Keep all elements AT LEAST one pica away from each other. Don’t be afraid of white space! We like white space. Also, be sure to use the baseline grid. When using the baseline grid guide, try to keep elements two to three baselines all the way around the outter sides of your page. We’ll go over this, don’t sweat it.

SUBHEADS / DECKS

Typeface/ Up to you! Size/ Up to you! Leading / Any, upon discussion *Feel free to stagger your deck if you’d like, it looks pretty rad staggered.

There is this little place out in the wild, wild west and its not gone yet, skyrises and flshing lights aren’t all they are cracked up to be. Cowgirls at their finest rant and rave about their quality of life. Imo dolupta tuscipit di sunt estis sum licilles eveliquo berem. Itae volenducil excersp errunt et quo magnam suntibus, consequunt quuntor asi dellorum sapieni enimosae nimus eos
