If you don't want to pay the printer for fixing your files, you are not only required to see all your mistakes, but you are also required to fix ALL of them before sending the files to the printer."Am I actually required to foresee all my mistakes?
You are not fined, you are charged fairly for the job that has to be done and that you were not able to do.Besides, I am offended when I get fined unexpectedly".
I beg to differ please...the most irritating mistakes I see are from "College Trained Professionals". If they paid to learn how to design for print and they are taught that rich black should be used on ALL text then someone should be fired from their teaching position. I had a 144pg, 5.5x8.5 spiral bound book from the Red Cross (of all people) a few years back chock full of non-overprinting 4-color black copy. I told the designer that was no good and she replied that her professor says that 4-color black looks better. I had to explain that she was taught wrong and why you don't do that. For college courses to be effective, they should have field trips to actual printing companies to see what can and CANNOT be done. As they are now, it's like learning to swim without going near the water.there is a very useful and efficient solution called "training" and "school"!
