  • We have a small office of about 10 people, 3 of whom don't drink coffee or tea (the Keurig can brew just plain water). My boss pays for the brewer, and the employees are basically on their own to buy the k-cups, sweetener and creamer (or powdered milk as we do). To lease a coffee maker or coffee would be more expensive for my boss.

    • finally got a copy of the book i did the cover for!! print quality isn't the best but that was out of my hands. the author is a NYC native dealing mainly with collage/ patchwork. the font wasn't my first choice but the client really liked it

      • That's so cool, Typ! I'd love to design a book cover, but it's cool to see your stuff in print either way. lol, I still have a few newspapers in which my ads have appeared. Congrats!

        My book arrived yesterday too! Not one I designed, but one I've been waiting for. Anyone else read the Wheel of Time books? My roommate bought me the newest and last in the series. I stayed up half the night last night getting a jump on it - it's massive! Yay books! Hmm, speaking of, anyone know if we have a book thread/book club?

          Nice job Typ! I did a cover for a book we printed a couple of months ago. Nothing fancy, but it's still pretty cool to see your work on something other than business paraphernalia.

          I got up to (I think) the fourth book about 20 years ago and it kind of lost my interest. Looks like they're still cranking them out, maybe I'll have to give them another shot

            Not sure if there's a lease fee, but we don't buy the coffee brewer, just the coffee.

            Is that how it works for most places?

                  • Thanks, Yoss - some good suggestions in there. Not that I don't already have shelves of books I haven't gotten to yet.

                      You're seriously asking a guy named BLADEZ for a CUT?

                                  This is kind of like posting pictures of 4 different houses, and asking the same question; how did they build these houses, and where can I learn?
