Status Update

Typically we share ongoing communication on digital publication service tickets but we also provide a progress update to confirm we're on track for handoff for publisher client review and approval.

Final adjustments and changes

We process any design changes including any editorial corrections and confirm the time for making the publication live.

We use the normal InDesign handoff for the master print layout files or we can convert from other design applications such as Quark. Publication custom design from other content asset options are also available.

Nothing is automated. We handle every design asset transition to digital. We fully host and maintain your custom domain. We handle every adjustment upon request anytime.

The creative decisions about how content displays on the multiple viewport designs is driven by the original art direction and publication style.

Enhancements are digital elements performed in the live digital publications that would not be possible in a printed format. For Indesign file handoff production, enhancements are comprised of added media assets (images, video, or responsive art direction) outside the normal print layout package handoff. For example, adding a video to appear in the digital issue is an enhancement and elevates audience interest and engagement in the content. For articles, the publisher may submit additional images to make the digital version uniquely the favorite premium media format . As we continue to try new digital upgrades and ideas, customers may request any type of enhancement and receive options for implementation.

Our service desk tickets track each publication production and allow for collaboration of all involved participants. We guide publishers for other enhancements.
