AllYearbooks 2010 Information Pack
Reporter: Jake Gordon
Date: February, 2010
AllYearbooks is a leading yearbook producer in the UK. We had been weighing up InDesign vs Scribus for some time but with version 1.3.6 Scribus really took the lead for us. We created this information pack (marketing material) entirely in house. We used Scribus 1.3.6svn as it included important features and bug fixes which we required.
Our information pack is 48 pages long, and as we needed to create it as quick as possible we created 5 smaller files with up to 10 pages each, rather than working with one big file. This enabled two of us to work on the pack concurrently, connecting to a Samba share over 1Gbps ethernet.
After sending the document to be printed in both paperback and laminated hardback forms, I used the 'import page' feature to collate the five files into one, to make future revisions more logical.
You can find also download the PDF of the information pack, which was exported using Scribus' PDF export tool with all images compressed to a maximum of 72dpi.
