Begin by clicking through the examples that are on the website Brainstorm what materials you could use for your center and prioritize them Talk it over with colleagues Once you have what you want to create, now begins the process of creating the information that is being presented in your materials Make sure to have estimates for producing materials and have talked to your REAC about those details All of this should be done before submitting a ticket

Best Practices: Ticket Example
Best Practices: Word Document Example Includes text for the design Logo that should be included Since the final is 2 cards to each page this is perfect This helps speed up the design
Best Practices: Final PDF Not exactly like the submitted Most files sent back are in PDF format unless otherwise specified Some printers might need specific things like bleeds and crop marks Including these details helps me create the file they are looking for My work environment is all Adobe
Best Practices: Video Projects Sending video files via Dropbox / yousendit Adding our EducationUSA touch Creating playlists We can give you embed codes to use on your center pages or host organization sites Video archive page
Best Practices: Time Saving Tips When sending updates to word documents make sure to track changes or change the color of the edits so they are easy to find Most final print designs are PDF files so if you when reviewing and making edits a program like Adobe Acrobat is very useful or one of its cheap/free alternatives Dont reinvent the wheel, use the resources we already have PLAN AHEAD!
