How Leaflets are made?

Making paper leaflets with artwork that talk is really easy. You can laminate them, or even bulk print of pence, so that the visitor can listen and take it away home as an aide-memoir! Here is what you do:
1. Make a rough sketch of the vidual graphic - could be pictures, maps, text....
2. Decide where you want sound spots to be.
3. Give the sketch to your Graphics Designer who sends us a print ready high res pdf.
4. Send another low res PDF or printout, indicating where you want the sound spots to be.
5. Make your audio .mp3 files for the sound spots
6. Send us your PDFs and .mp3 files
7. We will print and compile all your .mp3 files co-ordinated to your artwork as one DPEN file. Touch the DPEN on any sound spot in your artwork and listen - to Narrations, Music, Sound effects.

So REally, the ball is in your court. Once we receive the PDFs and .mp3 we can deliver in 3 weeks maximum. You can elect to make pads of your artwork to hand out a page to each visitor after they have used it in the venue;
we can print on card and laminate for longer life
we can mount onto Aluminium sandwich backing to screw fit onto walls
we can also make the sound spots tactile so that visually impaired or blind people can share the enjoyment too.

Should you wish at any time to make changes to the audio, you can do so easily by replacing the appropriate audio in DiscoveryLINK. Then connect the pen and the new file will be installed automatically. You can make as many changes as you wish without incurring any costs. Wish to make a new trail or an audio for a temporary exhibition? No problem, go through the steps above. The control is with you and thereby minimises costs.

"This is probably the most accessible trail of people of all kinds of disabilities in the entire state. I really hope it spreads."

Accessibility Coordinator, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources: Fern Trail

"The audio was great. Very easy to follow and find sites and I am directionally challenged. Excellent guide for all ages. It was very easy to use. I wear hearing aids and I could hear it very clearly. Thankyou for a very interesting tour"

Visitor Feedback - Oxford Botanical Garden

"The pilot project has been so successful that the pen will be extended to more galleries and collection."

Paul Sullivan - Museum Access and Inclusion Officer, Bristol

"The DiscoveryPEN has been very successful in our trial and has received excellent feedback. We have extended its run and will certainly look to use this on a wider scale in the Museum in the future – incorporating different languages too."
