    Thank you for your feed-back. Actually this it's just a part of the context, a work in progress of the below exposed logotext. It was a must to find something pretty similar in the serif/sans-serif relation...

    In my GD program, we were required to take a class that was all about print file preparation and preflighting. Granted, it was only one class, one semester, but, from what the rest of you are saying,...

    I'd agree with the OP's statement. I learned design at a vocational college and was taught the bare bones of prepress, I consider myself lucky to have been taught bleeds and trapping and overprinting......

  • Stupid FEDEX! (pic included)

    Anybody here have a G5 or handled a G5? You know how solid the construction is. Thing is built like a tank. Well we just got one of our G5's shipped to us today only 30 miles, totally smashed up. It was even in a Apple system box which alone takes a tremendous amount of pressure to bust up. The case is literally falling apart now and the alum handles are bent inward. It's unreal! You can literally stand on top of those handles... I have done it. I can't imagine what FEDEX could have done to cause this much damage. The machine won't boot up now of course.

    the worst part... the person who shipped it didnt insure it... [img]/emoticons/oops.gif[/img]

    Ewwwe yeah thats fkd up!! Atleast you don't have to worry about paying for anything! But..that does mean you have to wait for another computer....ewee!! I can't imagine what they did either. Carelessness....just carelessness!! ;o)

    I am at ends with FedEx myself. I had to wait for my Adobe CS packages....3 weeks....THREE FRIGGIN WEEKS!!!!!!!! Should have been 2 days!! Nooo......so of course I had to call them like every friggin day, so I would have something to tell the bossman BEFORE he asks me the status! It's here now tho..and the bossman is gone for 2 weeks! YAY!

    Good luck with the shipping on the new one! If its only 30 miles...might wanna make the trip yourself.....ROFL ;o)

            I never liked FedEx, they always seemed more expensive and slower. I like UPS.

              If FedEx and UPS were to merge, would the new company be called FedUp?

                  LMAO @ Kirby, that a good name. LOL

                  plantationfarmer This is funny cause only a Graphic Artist would think like that.

                  Oh and Darkels why are they shipping something 30 miles away? You can drive there and back in an hour.

                      good point benjo ... that's what i was thinking.

                      i personally, have never had a problem with fedex ... use 'em every year to ship christmas presents to my family in cali.

                        So what's your course of action now? I am guessing FedEx owes you a G5 now?

                            I looks like it got left in the sun too long and melted! That's crazy.
