The design development was handled entirely in-house, but because a print run of 1,500 copies was requested, services of an outside printer were preferred in order to save wear and tear on our office copier. In order to save on printing costs,the bookmobile department chose to use for this 2-sided brochure a 1-colour black/white quad-fold design (three folds for four panels).
The department was eager to get brochures in the hands of patrons but still had some route schedule changes to finalize, so I printed out 100 copies in-house to tide them over until final changes could be made and the balance of prints could be produced by the outside printer. We made the final revisions the next week and sent them on to the printer.

to be trimmed after emerging from the laminator.
With their approval, I printed, laminated, and double-side tapped it to an inexpensive, plastic-coated corrugated yard sign purchased from Lowe's hardware.
Total signs required: 7.
