I am a sophomore going into Graphic Design, and right now I am trying to look at summer opportunities for studying abroad.
I was hoping that I could glean some information from you all about where you think the best places to study abroad are, or what are some of the best schools outside of the US.
I've finished a project with a broadside accordian fold, flat 21x34, finished 10.5x4.25. Sent it to the printer my client wanted and the proof that they sent back was a mess. It was .25" short on the width and height, and the panels were folded in a variety
of widths. I marked up the proof & sent it back, requesting an accurate proof that demonstrates they can do the job. I just received an email asking me to approve the job and promising that they will do it right, but they can't provide an accurate folded proof
because of the proofing paper. In 20 years, I've never had a printer suggest that I approve a job without an accurate proof. Especially when the job involves folds. You have to see that everything lines up on the equipment that is being used. Has the printing
business changed this much with PDF proofs and online ordering that a complex job doesn;t receive a good quality proof? Please give me your opinions, because I'm concerned that the client will shrug and say OK. Thanks!
I never approve anything, folded or flat, from outside vendors (and even the in-house prinshop I work with on a regular basis) before I see a print proof! Trust your gut and don't approve until you see that they can produce the quality product you need for
Hello everyone! I have a technical questions that has been driving me crazy, and probably has a very simple solution. Whenevner I create a document in Indesign that has a stroke added to any of it's text then save it as a PDF and upload it online to a digital
library such as Scribd, it's like the stoke doesnt line up with the text and the outcome is awful and not readable. Suggestions?
