Default Can I see your DTP website?

I'm interested in checking out the websites of those who include print design as part of what you do.
I initially began going through the member list (whew!) but thought maybe a wee note might be more effective.
I'd just like to get an idea of how it is all presented.
Thanks kindly for sharing ...

It’s not that I wouldn’t be glad to share, but I have never attempted to show my print work on the web. This is at least in part because most of my 40 years as a designer was spent on print work — running text — in books or magazines. I cannot figure out how to show that well without using PDFs, and that seemed like too much trouble (though it is easier today than it was before browsers knew how to deal with PDFs).

Besides that, you miss a lot viewing any sort of print work on the screen. The colors are different, the scale is probably lost, there is no tactile sense to accompany the visual, and so on.

But it will be interesting to see what links do turn up here — should be fun.

Default Its the site I want to see rather than the work...

My question was not posed with enough clarity. I am interested in seeing folks' websites that promote their business, their work, etc.
Alternately, any DTP businesses that work in print as opposed to web in their work that you know of that have websites would be great. I'm just doing some preliminary research.
Thanks again!

Not sure if it really counts (as DTP is quite peripheral to what I do) - but http://communicationarts.co.uk

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but here are a few pages from my site that might be of interest:

1. An print ad I did for a friend

2. A few different flyers and a logo

3. Some magazine ad layouts

4. A digital postcard design for a friend

5. A birth announcement postcard
