    Customer file submission

    In my experience there is a not irrational fear of several possible occurrences. 1. The 'customer/designer' getting annoyed - possibly subconsciously - that their work is considered less than acceptable regardless of attempts to convince them it is 'just technical issues' and they take their...

    Kodak and Preps

    That USED TO BE the case. Now the standalone LICENSE HAS to be on the server if you want it to integrate to Prinergy - which is one of it's most useful features. Believe me that we, and Kodak support, tried to get it to work for MONTHS to no avail. They then tried to CHARGE ME for the time it...

    I've Heard

    I like to tell the story to new hires about how there are two signs out side of a print shop. One says 'Magic Shoppe'. The other says 'Customers Needed'. Only the best customers see the 'Magic Shoppe' sign and really appreciate the work that goes on there. But the plain, ordinary customer sees...

The last files we sent to the die maker got a note back essentially saying WTF? with all the extraneous lines. Sure enough the single die, created in Ill, as a NEW FILE, TO SIZE...

    Print Sales

    Back in the day there was a 'printer' in town who charged $5 for 1000 BC. You provided art or typed it on a non-repro blue layout sheet on the typewriter in his tiny lobby. Then he ganged it with others on 67# white vellum. People tended to use him one time. We joked about what we needed to do...

    Poll: Switching to Affinity?

    For those who say Affinity isn't the $ame as Adobe, yes, it is not the $ame. Affinity does have a TREMENDOUS amount of web tutorials available. And no, according to their website it doesn't yet import eps with spot colors retained. So there will be use cases for Adobe products. Not going to deny...
