Some of my clients have trouble visualizing what a design will look like when it’s printed. I try my best to create digital comps to simulate the final product. Luckily, InDesign makes it really easy to link the actual file to the comp. I show the piece closed, open, the outer envelope, response card and response card envelope. And in some cases, I even show how the die cut will appear by using compound shapes and shadows.
Below are some examples of comps vs. the final product. Let me know what you think. Would the comps help you visualize? Do you think the comps accurately depict the printed pieces? Shoot me a message!
