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

Call-outs: Brief passages of text lifted from within the publication placed in larger type size (and occasionally font) to gain attention.  They are often inserted into the text (divided by the change of font/size, sometimes boxed, or with other graphics) as an element which breaks the text or copy.  Usually, it is "teaser" copy - attention-getting and draws readers into the item.

Clip Art: Commercially produced "stock" images, already prepared, many times found in collections.  Generally copyright free with some limitations, it can be "cut and pasted" directly into the publication. - see art

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

One way to include photographs is to add an envelope to the binding - then you can place any photo in the envelope.

Marketing advice

Never forget that producing the manusrcript to print is sometimes just "half the battle": If you don't try to sell your book - who will?

Just like paper and book research, never forget to run the same computer searches occasionally - you never know what will be added to the internet you'd find.

Computer aid!?!
///////////////////////////////

Do you love a font that is not easy to read? It's custom suited to your work but you are afraid of making typos? Use an easy to read font while doing all your data entry. Then, go back and adjust font type size, spacing, etc.
