    Readability -- especially on a poster -- is right up there at the top of what's most important. Your question indicates that you're already seeing problems. Just sort of mostly readable isn't good enough...

  • Hey

    Thought I should introduce myself since I have already posted a few times and haven't posted who I am.
    I am the Senior Prepress Technician for a medium sized Commercial Printer. I have been working in the industry for close to 20 years now. I have done everything from Production Art in a Premedia House to Stripping/Camera/Pasteup for a Magazine Publisher way back in the old days. I hope to help out and maybe learn a few things too!

    Hi RePrint, nice to have you on board. Prepress folks are always welcome here.

    When you have a few moments, please take a look over the threads posted here; they explain just about everything you need to know about the place.

    If you're not familiar with vBulletin forums, there are some great tips posted here.

      Thanks,
      I checked a lot of the forum out when I first started lurking around. It seems you have a well run forum and a good community.

        we like to think so!

        Now that you've been initiated, the hazing will probably begin. I'll fill you in on a little secret though - most of the folks around here can be distracted by shiny things.

          Ooooh shiny object! I love those. I have access to good wine, maybe a few bribes in the right place will take care of things.

              Thanks Ben, soon I'll come up with a shiny new avatar (notice the use of the word "shiny", it's distracting )

                    Welcome RePrint, as a prepress guy I can truly say I love reprints (no changes) No fuss no Muss. Reruns can be scary, however.

                        Jimking, do you call a reprint when you print the job againg because the client has run out? And rerun is because the client rejected the job?

                        I get confused with it but one time a client ordered another set of letterheads right after we had already printed their letterheads. I told our production manager that we were reprinting the letterheads and he almost had a mental breakdown. Apparently I said a bad word.

                          we always called it a "rerun" if it was refused by the client, and an "exact repeat" if it was a reorder with no changes.

                          Unfortunately, we used the term "reprint" for both, so it picked up negative connotations along the way.

                              Generaly that's the case but not always. A reprint is usually just that "a exact reprint" or a "reprint with changes". A rerun is usually a job that was just printed and needs to be rerun because of a customer error or printer's error.
                              Your manager freaked thinking that you were going to reprint the error.
