    Anyone still using a Postscript workflow?

    Xitron Navigator 13 is more suited for PDF. We moved from PS to PDF with this upgrade. I'm not sure why they would suggest that since you can RIP to 1 bit TIFF and interface with the Xitron blue box to communicate with your setter. We continued to use PS because it was the only way to...

    Colorado and California to require salary range in job postings

    I can't tell you how many wasted job interviews I've been on over the years not knowing the salary. They never want to share that, which in turn is a waste of the hiring party's time as well.

    A single stubborn clogged green nozzle on Epson P9000

    You're right. I sent a picture to a service guy and he said the same. I bought 3 also. So far it's only the one but I'm sure the others won't be far behind, lol. I contacted Epson and I'm going to take advantage of the $1395 one time service event. I considered just replacing it with a new...

    A single stubborn clogged green nozzle on Epson P9000

    There's 3 or 4 lines in the green that won't clear with any level of repeated cleanings. We're using a color managed RIP and I need the green.

    Printer is about 3 years old and used daily, but not heavy usage. I've done all the cleanings possible multiple times. Any suggestions?

    Evolution of Color Proofs

    Evolution of Color Proofs

    Not as bad as messing up on the last pull of a 7 color hand mixed/hand toned Cromalin. How about the alcohol stink from the Matchprint processors? those were the good ole days. I did all sorts of proofing and film contacting for about 2 years when I started in 1990 before I trained on the Scitex...

    Evolution of Color Proofs

    I think the later Realist models were more reliable. I used one of their earlier releases and I get what you are saying.

    Evolution of Color Proofs

    I'm surprised that the Approval is still in use in many shops. The gotta see screen crowd, I guess. I can't imagine the materials are easy to come by.

    Dropping College Degree Boosts Hiring

    I worked for a major packaging printer and you're not getting a management position without a bachelors regardless of experience. I personally think it's ridiculous, but that's the way it is.

    Changing cut sheet size for Epson P9000

    You can tell it to print on center in Oris. Granted you may know that and may have tried that. Just a thought. I have 3 P9000's driven by Oris Color Tuner. Off topic, but not a fan of the Oris overly complicated interface.
