I forgot to show you this, too.  You'll find it useful if you're embarking on more of this kind of work in the future.

Sweet.  Thank you so much.  Fortunately I was able to complete the half page magazine ad all in photoshop and that all went to press fine as of this morning.  Huge relief.  Now I can spend a a few days beginning to learn how to use Illustrator and InDesign before I have to start the next big project which will include logo creations.  Talk about learning new things.  I am Chemist by education and trade, retired to be a stay at home mom - who homeschools, turned photographer and now learning graphic design.  I never would have guessed this journey for myself, but it's a fun ride.

What did you decide about the black, @Michelle G?  Are you going to leave it as true black?

We are ironing that out now.  It looks like Pantone Neutral Black is the right color.

Do you think you'll be able to modify my InDesign document ok, if you need to? You'll see I set it up with layers, like a Photoshop document.

I sure hope so.  I started studying and playing in Illustrator first.  Next up is InDesign because I have 4 schedules and flyers to crank out later this week.

Well, feel free to post any time you need my help.

Would you be able to help explain this?  We have another banner ready to print.  This one is a stretchy banner that will wrap around a curved wall stand.  

The General Art Guidelines...  

1.  What does it mean  Pantone Colors - "Called out in the art as spot colors"

2. Embed all images...?

3. Resolution must be 100-120?  I first created it in PS but am now working in Illustrator and my closest choice is 150ppi?

4. All fonts must be created to outline?    This file is just another repeating logo pattern.

These are all quite old-fashioned requirements, to be honest.  As long as you're sending your finished artwork as a PDF file, the PDF saving process will take care of all of it.

The "resolution" in Illustrator is irrelevant.  You'll set the output resolution in the PDF saving process.

This part makes me nervous.  May I see what the design looks like?

Not the exact file, but same concept and created the same way.  It's just a repeating pattern file.

The logos sent to me as png files were created that as vectors in illustrator.

PNG files are pixel files, so they're no good.  You have to ask for the logos to be sent in vector format (eg .pdf or .ai); or recreate them yourself in vector format.

 Yikes.  OK.  Back to the drawing board.

I have two of the logos in vector form now.  Is there a way to create a pattern / step and repeat in Illustrator?  I found one way, but it doesn't look at all the way I need it to.

You need it to look like this, is that correct?

This is what it should look like (first graphic with the three logos).... This one was created in ps using png logos.... It was kicked back out because it's not vector.  


Second screenshot is the recreation in Illustrator.  I have not been able to successfully convert the purple circle logo into a vector file.  So I started with the two logo just to learn the process.   I canNOT figure out how to re-create the step and repeat pattern in Illustrator.  I can get to this point and then when I click down and save that pattern disappears..

I'm SO sorry, this is beyond my experience.

🤣There is no hope for me then.
