    We are trying to design this as a nice, permanent keepsake. That is why it will be a printed edition. Therefore we have no plans to post it on the "here today, gone tomorrow" internet.

    Maybe a downloadable/printable PDF version? Oh, I almost forgot- "Please."

    Dear U.H.,

    I take extreme pride in my printing and design skills. There, I am permitted to work at 1200dpi. And you want me to schmutz it down to 72dpi?

    If I can figure a way to insure that the .pdf will not be screen-viewable (probably by making it 600dpi) then a .pdf version will be made available.

    But only 'cuz you said please.
    Alex

    If you create a PDF, you can set whatever resolution you want for print and it will only display at 72dpi on a monitor. Acrobat Reader separates print from display resolution. Print resolution is stored in the file itself, Reader automatically handles downscaling to 72dpi for display as a separate function. Therefore, you can set whatever print resolution you want and it will still display properly on a computer monitor.

    If you would like me to, I can post a step-by-step guide for you here that will show how to specify the print resolution, and also optimize for screen display. That would dramatically decrease your filesize. This would make it possible for people to easily download your PDFs and print/view them at home.

    Thanks, linux. I know the steps. I am wanting to create a .pdf file which is not screen-viewable. I am not sure that it can be done.

    Why would you want it not screen-viewable? Well, if that is the case, I would simply create a ("print-to-file") postscript file from InDesign or whichever layout program you use. It will allow you to set the resolution, and will create a file that is only at this resolution. It is printable by others, but not viewable (although they could convert it to PDF to view if they really wanted to).

    The main reason is as stated above. We are going through a great deal of work to make this a nice keepsake, printed in full color on top quality paper at 1200dpi. Additionally, there will be a couple of pieces of fabric in the newsletter so that members can "feel" while they read. Kind of like "scratch 'n sniff" ... but this is "feel and ahhhh." A second reason is color. The internet is very good at reproducing 256 colors. Need I say more? Therefore, though sections of the newsletter will be readable online after the printed copies are mailed, we shall not be posting the entire newsletter online. There is no way to prevent it from being screen viewable. So ... if you want it, click the link top of Page 1. If you're worried about your address, have it sent to you at General Delivery. If you're not in the U.S., we'll send anyway - just like more than 100 of your fellow members.

    Re: The Zimmerli Pajama Woman [​IMG] There seems to be a rumor floating about the three fora that my assistant was clad in nought but Zimmerli men's pajamas. Well. I never. In contrast to the majority of you youthful, dapper gentlemen and ladies who graced A Collection of Sartorial Excellence, I am a staid, conservative, morally boring, old fogey of a Shirtmaker & Haberdasher. Rest assured, gentlemen, Marissa was wearing Zimmerli for Women under her Zimmerli for Men.

    Well, that knowledge takes away a little bit of the spice. Sometimes ignorance and imagination better serves than the truth.

    Sorry about that, familyman. I can't restore the imagination, but here's the total picture, plus Suisse, sans Marissa. Left: Zimmerli for Women without Zimmerli for Men. Right: Zimmerli for Men without Zimmerli for Women [​IMG]
