What’s It Mean?
///////////////////////////////

*Blue line: For Gregath use, see ARC Below is a definition from "The What Shall I Write Handbook", Corrine Russell, 1992, that is a good addition to our ARC entry:

"Blue lines are page proofs. They represent your last chance to review copy looking for errors.  Depending on the printing process your printer uses, blue lines may be expensive to produce, and many printers will not provide them unless you request them.  If printers do provide them, they may be expensive, so ask first.  Blue lines may be a good idea if you have a lot of photographs, for blue lines present your only opportunity to see photographs in place.  Check them carefully.  Make sure they are in the correct position, and that they are not upside down or turned backward.  Because blue lines are so expensive to produce, now is the time to start editing and proofreading. Unless they are printer's errors, changes made at this point cost you dearly."

Bold(face): Highlights type as is darker/heavier - to stand out.  Other "attention getters" include ALL CAPS, Italic, Underline (should not be used in web pages), Call-out, etc.  Use attention getters sparingly.

Terms marked with an asterisk (*) are not generally used in our office.

Have something that you want to include that looks best with larger dementions than your chosen book size? Consider a fold out insert.

Did you realize that the set up fee charged to all publishing orders covers all reprints of the same format - as long as the reprinted books are bound at the same bindery? Reprint hard cover books 2, 8, or 20 times, pay the set up fee once.

Genealogy ideas

A good genealogy plan doesn't rely on only one resource: You may need to do "hands on" research, correspond by mail, make telephone calls, and/or research online and communicate by email to get the best material.
