If you compose music you may be interested in the DIY prepping of your composition for print. There are a few commercial programs available, as well as free open source source programs.

A couple of commercial programs:
Finale - http://www.finalemusic.com/default.aspx
Sibelius - http://www.sibelius.com/home/index_flash.html

A couple of open source programs:
MuseScore (comparable to commercial products): http://musescore.org/
Lilypond: http://www.lilypond.com

After notating the score you want to prepare it for print. The Major Orchestra Librarians' Association (MOLA) provides guidelines for the preparation/formatting/size of paper etc.. of a score: http://www.mola-inc.org/GuidelinesBrochure2006.pdf
- Visit the resources section of their website for more info: http://www.mola-inc.org/
