    I'm designing a press pass for my campus news paper. They are starting to get strict on who is allowed on the Field and Courts. I was the press pass to look official and not something a kid did in paint.

    Does anyone have any ideas? I also do not want a template because most templates are for kids.

    If you have a press pass for a newspaper, could you post a picture of it for design ideas?

    I tried google images for press passes and got a picture of a nude black male. Got to love google lol

    I designed our passes for this year. I have a good hookup on having them printed (super professional, big time newspaper style) too if you're interested.

    Whatever you do, do NOT make them in photoshop. Photoshop is not for designing print and will look like ****.

    Put them together in InDesign.

    Technically I'm not IN Cincinnati, per say... But I can be there in fifteen minutes without traffic. :)

    I'm around Florence, KY and often in/around/above/under Covington.

    I'm a little confuse here. If you are shooting for the campus newspaper and you are talking about sports, how will a press pass you print help? I shoot sports and I get all my sideline passes from the college athletic department where the game is being played.

    If you are looking for an ID pass then that is a different matter. I would suggest that you get with the school administration and build it along the lines of your campus ID card. All schools have them now and your press pass will be easily recognizable if it is in the same format at your school ID.

    I got to a small private school. I already know the coaches. They just want something because we are going to NCAA soon and NCAA has different rules. What ever I make the coaches will be fine with.
