The 2023 edition of the Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar — our 40th annual issue — has been “put to bed”. That is, the digital file that will be used for printing the booklets has been uploaded to the art department of the printing company. At the printer’s, a number of steps remain in the prepress process but it’s a much more direct line than it used to be from the editor’s desk to the printed page. Once the page proofs are approved (all but a simple formality anymore) printing is given the go-ahead and our project added to the plant’s work queue.
The short story here is that the 2023 Calendar will be in print soon and begin shipping and distribution. “Soon” is yet to be defined, however.
