  1. Hello there,

    I really like your tutorials and tips and they have helped me A LOT!!!
    I never went to a design school, self tutoring and determination got me where I am today.

    Please keep up the good stuff because I visit your website everyday to see what’s new to learn.


  2. Hello Stephen, I am a webmaster by profession. Now I am quietly getting into the designing (graphic) world too! Can you please guide me how to setup Bleeds, Margins in AI for multiple pages. I don’t want my texts and images to be cutoff while in the printing process. Thank you.
