    Thank you for your answer PrintDriver. Seems like I was misinformed. I'll probably have to buy another printer that can print on thicker card stock then. Do you have any suggestions as to what printer...

    Thanks.

    I was testing the Font Suitcase and seems to be screwing with my Chrome bowsers...after some googling--looks like its a known issue. FEX it is then.

    Thanks Garricks....

  • How to be a professional Graphic Designer?

      With all it's fetures.

      I guess I'm a bit confused. The OP says he's new to the profession. Well, there you go.

      That's the wonderful thing about graphic designing. You want to learn how to be a professional graphic designer? Just say, "I'm a professional graphic designer". You'd be amazed at how well that works for so many... people.

        The difference between an amateur and professional designer is in their creative use of lens flares.

        Remember that and you'll be fine.

              How to be a professional Graphic Designer

              1) Get paid for Graphic Design work.
              1a) Use a 24-hour cookie.
              2) ???
              3) Profit!

                I heard there were cookies in this thread.

                It's hard to give you advice on a profession without knowing how much you know already. Even if we did, we wouldn't be a substitute for real life education or experience.
                It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

                  My impression is that the OP is either more involved in SEO / backlink-spawning than graphic design, or is already working as a logo designer. Not sure which. Both maybe.

                    Is that a crystal ball or Google?

                        I believe "Crystal Ball" and "Google" are synonyms, right?

                            Hi Ms Zila and welcome to GDF!

                            I don't know where you heard that, but it's false. Males and females have the same brilliant brains.

                            We ask that all new members take a few minutes to read through important threads here and here. These will explain our rules, answer frequently asked questions and explain some of the long running jokes you'll run into.

                            Enjoy your stay.
                            Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.
