How to Package Adobe InDesign Files
Have you ever had a need to send an Adobe InDesign file but were unsure of how to include all the necessary files. Don't worry, you aren't alone, this is a common problem. InDesign files have become complex and you need to include not just the InDesign file, but also the fonts, images, and other files.
To help anyone who works with InDesign, we've written a how to article that walks you through the steps of using InDesign's Packaging Utility, compressing the files, and submitting the files. The result is a nicely wrapped package that includes all the necessary files for your InDesign document that a printer, like us, would need.
We hope you enjoy this how to and if there are others that you would like to see in the future, let us know.

Reproduction of Original Gutenberg Printing Press
This is a reproduction of the Gutenberg Printing Press that is in the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. You might wonder why this printing press is on display in the Creation Museum. The Gutenberg Press was used to print the Gutenberg Bible, and is part of the exhibit showing the history of the Bible. The Gutenberg Bible is the first major book printed using mass-produced movable metal type in Europe. It marked the start of the "Gutenberg Revolution" and the age of the printed book in the West.
Widely praised for its high aesthetic and artistic qualities, the Gutenberg Bible was printed by Johannes Gutenberg in the 1450s in present-day Mainz, Germany. Since its publication, 49 copies have survived, and they are considered among the most valuable books in the world even though no complete copy has been sold since 1978.
The Bible was not Gutenberg's first work, but was arguably his most important work. It is not known exactly how long the Bible took to print. Preparation of the Bible probably began soon after 1450, and the first finished copies were available in 1454 or 1455.

Going Paperless May Not Be Greener
New Two Sides campaign takes closer look at corporate greenwashing.
Is going paperless really making a dent in the sustainability movement? It's a question Two Sides North America is taking a closer look at with a recently produced engaging infographic aimed at exposing corporate greenwashing.
The piece explores misleading environmental slogans such as, "Go green — Go paperless" and works to bust key myths about switching from paper to digital. The infographic spotlights key facts, including:
- U.S. forests grew by 5,800 NFL football fields per day between 2007 and 2012 due to sustainable forestry practices
- 91 percent of U.S. consumers surveyed agree that print and paper can be a sustainable way to communicate when responsibly produced, used and recycled
- Paper is one of the most recycled products in North America with recovery rates of 66 percent and higher
- Electronic communications have a significant and growing environmental footprint that cannot be ignored by corporations
- 85 percent of U.S. consumers surveyed agree that "go green — go paperless" claims are designed to save costs
"The objective of the infographic is to make people realize that most environmental claims related to going paperless are based on marketing and cost reduction tactics, rather than verifiable and specific scientific facts — a requirement of the Green Guides published by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission," says Phil Riebel, president of Two Sides. "As a result, over 170 leading corporations across the globe, including many of the Fortune 100, have removed such claims due to our anti-greenwash campaign which has been running since early 2012."
