The Production Process

1. Place your order through the Print Version Ordering page, E-Newsletter Ordering page or Content Ordering page. You may pay by credit card, check or money order (if you're paying by check or money order, you will be mailed an invoice after the newsletter/e-newsletter is complete or after you have received the final version(s) of your content).

2. After we receive your order, we will send you an email entitled "Welcome To Left Field Media" which includes instructions on how to submit information, graphics, color choices and layout preference. For content orders, the email will outline the approval and request for changes process, as well as guidelines and policies for usage.

3. Once you submit your information, graphics, color choices and layout preference, we will then create your initial proof and email the proof to you (or provide you an online link to your e-newsletter proof) for your approval or for you to request changes. We have no limit on the number of changes you can request. For content orders, we will email you the content when you place your order and then give you the option to request changes.

4. Once you are completely satisfied with your newsletter proof, we will then create a final version of the newsletter/e-newsletter and either ship the newsletters directly to you (print version) or email the e-newsletter to you (e-newsletter version).

5. For all printed newsletters and e-newsletters, we will ensure that you receive the finished product before the first day of the month for that issue's date. For example, for the April issue, we schedule the production process in March so that you will receive your newsletters before April 1. New content is posted to our website on the first business day of each month.

If you have any questions about the production process or any of our products and services, please see the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us at support@leftfieldmedia.net.
