    B, did you read his resume?
    Parts of this are actual work, even though it seems to be on campus and/or under no direction.

    Either that or the printer has automatic borders and won't print within 1/4" of the edge all around and maybe even not a 1/2" at the bottom.

    You know your right, I hadn't thought of flattening it to include the skull also. Really great advice, I definitely think that could be the reason it doesn't look quite right. THANK YOU!

  • Quark vs Indesign... Need Advice.

    Hi all.

    Upgrading the department to OSX and I am debating to just chuck Quark and go Indesign.
    I am Quark user myself and I am a little leary to cast aside the almighty but Indesign seems to be pretty dependable.

    Gawd we've beaten this topic to death.
    Do a forum search for the Quark vs Indesign (or Indesign vs Quark)
    Check with your favorite print vendors first to see if they will print from InDesign. Some are too lazy to figure out what they need to do to make it work correctly.
    Then choose InDesign.
    Quark sux.

              Thanks for all the help.
              I'd much rather go Adobe all the way.
