Need to create stupid proof templates for non-designers

Ok folks, I'm new to this forum having come across it in search of a solution to my problem.
I need to create illustrator template files (.ai not .ait) that customers can download and use to create their own artwork for print. I have to create them in every printable paper format from business cards to A3 posters, folding, non-folding yada yada.
Now, previously, we used an .ai file with a guide layer we created. This guide layer had all relevant info, was named accordingly. It was set not to print and locked. As I tend to use print to file, distiller and all, this has always been perfectly adequate to create my pdfs. Of course, this doesn't work the same way when saving a pdf, which is what most people do. However, customers who wish to download the templates are having some difficulty with the concept of 'make sure you delete the guide layer before saving your pdf'.
For the most part, the customers using these files are not illustrator literate. Even though there are clear instructions to 'delete' the guide layer when saving the needed pdfs, they are failing to do so. This means when the .ai (with the non printable layer) is saved to pdf, the guide layer as a hidden object is saved within the pdf. Upon printing at our printing facilities, the guide layer has been printed with disasterous results.
A possible solution we came up with was to use the ruler guides to create the guide layer. For this solution to work though, I need to be able to use different colours for different guides within the same document. Which we can't. We can only change all the guide colours and they are all the same colour.
Another idea would be to outline text indicating various printable and non-printable areas and making them into guides via View>guides>make guides, which works to an extent but looks messy, especially when viewing the full page and again, isn't particularly distinctive, leading back to having different guides in different colours.
I've come across another possible solution involving template layers. Viewing the resulting pdf seems fine and in all purposes it does what we need, except for when reopening the saved (not printed) pdf back in illustrator, the template layer is still there and I need it gone. The same way it would be if the .ai were printed to postscript and sent through distiller.
My ideal solution would be to have to ability to have the different coloured ruler guides in place throughout my document, but as I previously stated, all guides have to be the same colour and that's useless in this instance.
So, has anyone got any bright ideas. Coincidentally I need to create the same templates for both psd and indesign but I'll cross that bridge when I've figured this out.

Hey Mike, thanks for the response.
1. Not a chance, if, even when the process is described in great detail in an info pdf, available as info on the website (with screenshot instructions) and mentioned in the .ai file itself, they aren't even deleting the guide layer, then turning off 'Preserve illustrator editing capabilities' is kind of a stretch. Like I said, the folks these templates are to be designed for are not illustrator literate for the most part.
2. Not sure if this would work. I'd have to look into it.
3. Beyond my capabilities. I'll let you know if number 2 works.
One possible solution I've come up with uses the idea of a template layer always on top, with 'DELETE THIS LAYER' and screenshot of layers pallette and clear little red arrows etc. If I can the template layer to always remain on top, with their artwork layer underneath, they would have to toggle hide/unhide to view their artwork, and the reminder to remove the guide layer would be pretty much in their face. That's not a guarantee either though.
Personally, I think what I've been asked to achieve is a pretty hard task and honestly, I'm thinking there are no failsafe options.

  • Do I need to Create Primary Key Class for Entity beans with Local interface

    Do I need to Create Primary Key Class for Entity beans with Local interface?
    I have created my entity bean with the wizard in Sun One Studio and it does not create a primary key class for you.
    I thought that the primary key class was required. My key is made up of only one field.
    Anyone know the answer.
    Jim

    u dont need to create a primary key class for a entity bean.if ur table's primary key feild(int ,float) is a built in or primitive data type,then u dont need one.But if ur table has a primary key field which is non primitive (for example StudentID,ItemID etc)then u have to create a primary key class.
    hope this helps :-)

    You should be able to call the iPad using your Apple ID from the iPhone. When calling from iPad use the iPhone's phone number to initiate the call.

    Hi,
    At one time only Email IDs from Apple (when it was just @Mac.com) were referred to as "Apple IDs"
    Other IDs such as to log in to Discussions were know as Discussion IDs
    Things like the Online Store and iTunes and Apple realising that people would prefer one ID to have access to Everything tended to move things together.
    There can be a variety of combos now
    iChat Name
    @mac.com before MobileMe
    @mac.com post MobileMe
    AIM Names
    AIM names current
    MobileMe (@Me.com)
    Style
    Email Address valid with the .Mac service prior MobileMe Note 1
    Email style Name Valid with AIM
    May or may not be an Email address
    Can be AIM issued or third party Email address

  • Data Mapping Templates for NON-RTA Systems

    Hi all,
    I'm designing n extractor for my NON-SAP System.
    I've been reading the Appendix B: Data Mapping Templates for Non-RTA Systems from Configuration Guide - SAP GRC AC 5.3.
    I have a couple of questions regarding the size of two fields in table ACTION PERMISSION OBJECTS TEMPLATE
    Is correct the size that the documents says about fields:
    ACTION (document says it's 20 but in other tables is 50)
    PERMISSION (document says it's 10 but in other tables is 100
    ACTVT (document says it's 10but in other tables is 50)
    Thank you in advanced.

    Hi Luis,
    Yeah i will follow the recomendations but i'm updating some files to RAR and i've seen another kind of inconsistency such as in the table User File Template. Recomendation says that both FNAME field and LNAME field are 50 size each one but in my case i can update a FNAME 51 size and a LNAME 49, i mean between FNAME and LNAME it's 100 size.
    Cheers.

  • Hi, both my husband and I have iphones synced to my apple id. It seems that we can't facetime due to this as it's like my email address is calling my email address! Is there anyway to fix this or will we need to create a new id for my husband's phone?

    settings - facetime - remove the apple id, on your husband phone.
    He should create his own id for imessage and facetime.

  • How to create a new template for pages in iPad?

    How to create a new template for pages in iPad?

    In spite of the latest updates Pages for iPad does not support:
    1) User templates
    2) Headers
    3) Footers
    4) Page numbers
    and it is not compatible with Pages for OSX, a document cannot be edited alternatively on Mac and iPad without destroying headers and footers.
    - The Word export is far from perfect
    - Does not really support Page Layout mode (you cannot duplicate a page at least)
    - Does not have a multi-page overview
    - The spelling support of iOS and OSX is at the level of Apple Maps except 4-5 languages.
    - It takes a long time until it starts
    INSTEAD, according to the latest updates:
    - It can do change tracking
    - Lock and unlock objects
    - Add reflections to shapes
    Dear Apple, please understand:
    - We like iPad and we wish to use it for real work.
    - We wish to have user templates, headers, footers and page numbers.
    - We do not expect all the features of Pages for OSX, but we do expect real compatibility.
    - We do not wish to switch back to Word for Windows unless you force us.
    Please try to concentrate on real development not on unimportant changes like in the latest dissapointing update.

    Hi All,
