For those times when you need production
I love developing templates so you can be independent when it comes to your day-to-day business documents, but that’s not the right solution for every situation.
Maybe you need files that are very specific when it comes to settings, format and setup. Such as designer prepared artwork for offset printing, large format banners or advertising for newspapers and magazines.
Or you are drowning in overwhelm and deadlines so could use some help to design, layout and typeset your brochures, newsletters and reports.
Good news, Fuzzy Ink Creative can help! I’ve been getting files to print and images online for well over twenty years.

Creating business documents & marketing collateral
Let’s start with an existing template or I can design something fresh and new based on your brand guidelines. I don’t believe that one size fits all, so final files are supplied in a format and resolution appropriate to how it will be used.
The documents I prepare print-ready or web-friendly artwork for include:
- Brochures & flyers
- Reports & proposals
- Social media images & banners
- Binder & folder artwork
- Event & tradeshow banners
- PDF fillable forms
Don’t twist yourself into a pretzel trying to juggle writing the content, sourcing the images, proof reading the words AND typesetting all of the above so it meets the production requirements. All while trying to make sure it is on brand both in look and feel as well as messaging.
That sounds exhausting! Let me worry about the layout, while you focus on creating the quality content that will wow your audience.
Whether it’s a multi-page brochure, course workbook, financial report or something else all together, I can create the file in Microsoft Word or InDesign and provide both press-ready and web-friendly PDFs at the end.

The five steps
for your project.
STEP ONE: Briefing
I’ll be in touch within one business day with some questions to make sure that I understand your specific project and have the skill set you need.
STEP TWO: Estimation
You’ll receive an estimate detailing the cost, work to be done, resources required (eg copy, photos etc), and time range for each stage of the project.
Once the job goes ahead, this becomes our project plan so be sure to ask any questions and let’s discuss any concerns after you review the estimate.
STEP THREE: Clarification
You’ve given the green light to proceed and we’ll now get into the nitty gritty of your project. I’ll request files, copy, technical specifications – whatever we agreed on in Step Two that is necessary to getting the job done.
You’ll also receive the final project plan. All the deadlines (yours and mine) will now have a date and time so you know exactly what to expect and when it will arrive.
STEP FOUR: Design & Typesetting
The job is now in my work schedule and the design process begins!
There is nothing for you to do in this stage as I design or layout your documents and marketing collateral as per the agreed project plan.
Note: your job will only be added into my workflow once the estimate is approved and any required deposit has been paid.
STEP FIVE: Revisions & Final Files
Once the bulk of the work is finished, you’ll receive PDF proofs for your feedback and review.
After you’ve approved the work, then I’ll hand over the final web and print files in the agreed formats ready for you to use. You’ll also receive any information necessary for production.
When the final invoice has been paid, a copy of the source files will also be sent to you.
