If you're a newspaper publisher and you've used Adobe PDF files for advertisements, then thank Kevin Slimp.
Since 1993, Kevin Slimp has trained thousands of newspaper designers in the latest technology. Its was way back in '93 when Kevin, started using a fledgling product from Adobe to convert newspaper advertisements into Portable Document Format (PDF). After convincing Adobe and several early-adaptor publishers this was a great idea, the technique began to catch on across the industry.
Today PDF files for newspaper ads and full page layouts are ubiquitous. Today Kevin is a favorite speaker and trainer in the newspaper industry and uses his Bondware site to post reviews of the latest newspaper technology. If you are a publisher, check out the latest news at www.kevinslimp.com and join his Bondware site to receive e-mail updates.
After two years of working with Bondware to host my website, I couldn't be more pleased. I have a professional looking, attractive site, with minimal effort.
I receive messages from visitors on a regular basis about how much they love the site. I've been very impressed with the service newspapers receive from Bondware: attractive, effective sites, with minimal time investment.
They're a perfect fit for small newspapers.
