After a draft of the form has been prepared, a Printing Request Template should be prepared and authorized by the department manager. ADM102-1 FORM PRINTING REQUEST must be forwarded to Administration for word processing (typesetting) and/or ordering. The Form Printing Request covers number of copies, colors, destination or use, and more.
If a one-part form is to be used internally only in small volumes, it should be noted on the request. A master form will then be prepared and given to the initiating department for reproduction with a copy machine. Since most printing or typing is done at 12 characters per inch horizontally and six lines per inch vertically, common grid paper of six squares to the inch both horizontally and vertically can be very useful in designing an internal form or for preparing a rough draft of a form for subsequent printing. Note: This will result in two characters per grid horizontally and one line per grid row vertically.
