  • Re: Introduce yourself

    Hi all, I'm a print and internet graphic and web designer, been in one facet or another of this world since finishing Cal Poly SLO in GrC. That was 1977. Since then did a lot of publications and prepress work, Up on .pdf's, Adobe gamut, Quark, MS Office and the rest of the usual suspects, mostly on a Mac.

    Not much integrated workflow experience, but I've worked with imposition programs, preflighting procedures, automatic publication generation via Quark plugins, but nothing really grand.

    Been freelancing since my job as Production Manager of our little regional weekly dried up and "consolidated" into something unlovely, but spent 9 years at a regional daily with 80,000 circulation in a number of jobs from Staff Artist to Commerical Print Specialist.

    Always looking to keep up as best I can, hence my membership here.


    • Hello everybody,

      I'm dtp operator and also responsible for the prepress it installation in a medium printing facility in Belgium.
      We work with Prinergy 5 and Insite 6 from Kodak.
      Output is done on Fuji Luxel T9800 CTP.

      I hope to find some answers here, and maybe help somebody else.

                              • Hey all! I'm Mandy from cold South Africa, soon moving to sunny Cyprus.

                                I've been a photographer for about 5 years and my husband and I are looking to expand our business and a offer photobook solution. As a photographer I've seen some dodgy qualities and on the other hand I've seen outstanding quality photobooks.

                                We are currently researching all the options and would really like some feedback/suggestions from anybody.

                                The choices at the moment is between the Italo and Fastbind systems - both with very good attributes - so how do you decide? Anyone with personal experience?

                                Then as far as printers go - OMG!!! There are soooo many options that I feel a bit overwhelmed but are currently looking at the Epson 9900 for large format printing and Xerox 550 for duplex printing. The Xerox is a bit pricey so are there other options that I can look at for printing photobooks please.

                                Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

                                As the twenty-first century opened, Koenig & Bauer had already anticipated the need for the coexistence of conventional and digital printing, and had begun to develop the technology that is today empowering offset printers to meet those challenges.
