Wait till the Christmas cards arrive and you judge the people by the quality of paper/printing/ink or toner, and then you start guessing what machine it was run on. Or even smell it. Than you know you have problems. Oh wait, we are printing, we already know we have problems. ;)

I just got a free roof estimate for hail damage from a guy who just showed up. He gave me a door hanger with a business card attached. Here I go, full bleed, die cut, coated one side door hanger. Business card coated one side, round corners. Yeah, I've got the disease.

So, I have a confession. I always carry a loupe with me and, especially when I'm in grocery stores, I inspect the printing to see what type of halftone screening was used as well as extended color. I once overheard a lady in the store explain to her son as I was taking a close view of the printing "Oh" she said "Look at that poor man. He must have really bad vision."
