I would like to know some basic information about printing, like types of paper, ink, their differences. Are these kind of questions appropriate for the site? If not, could you suggest another resource?
What topics can I ask about here?
Graphic Design is for questions targeted toward design professionals, students, and enthusiasts.
This includes questions about:
- Graphic arts theory and history; "Why" we do what we do and not necessarily the "how" in logo design, fonts & typography, visual communication
- Web design
- Layout and printing
- 3D graphics
- Digital media
Examples: video, Adobe Flash
but not about:
- Simple "How to" questions
- Brainstorming or idea gathering
- Technical questions related to video editing software
- Web site architecture and development
Examples: HTML that doesn't include CSS, server-side issues
- Landscaping and architecture
