    No one has seen it? If you have time and Netflix it's worth a look. Let me know what you think.

    I don't understand, plagiarism aside, how someone could design a logo knowing that it would be published to the world and think "I'll just copy this design over here, no one will notice..."...

    From google's website: To me, that's a different approach to logos than I've seen in the past where the goal was to create something timeless and long-lasting. The fact that they're announcing to everyone...

    I had a client who had two addresses on his business cards and letterhead, but just one on the envelopes. I'd think he would want just one return address on the envelopes so that he can control where...

  • printing issue

    using an EPSON STYLUS photo R1800 on an imac with indesigncs2, preview, and acrobat professional. trying to print out resumes. i printed one fine out earlier today in indesign using teal, black, and grays.

    tonight i got new 28lb white paper, and tried to print out a different resume in indesign with blacks, grays, and browns, and the browns hardly even printed, very very light, grays didnt print at all. so i tried regular computer paper , the same thing, i tried to save as a pdf and print from preview and acrobat, same thing, then i try to print out with just blacknwhite composite and it printed out light, but it did print out.

    i tried to switch the font, same thing. i tried to go back and print out the resume that printed oout fine earlier today, and it didnt print out, only 2 lines and in black, when the rest of the resume is in black and gray and teal.

    i'm confused, lost.

    any help would be much appreciated.

    thank you

    Have you checked whether the printer might just need a nozzle check or cleaning of some sort? Tried printing other files? Sounds like a printer problem, not a software problem, to me.

        Check the cartridges? Do a nozzle check?

          With Epson and Indesign there are at least 2 ways to set how color prints. In fact there are two ways to tell the Epson almost every print command. Too many windows.

          Check both your Indesign settings and the Printer settings in the "Printer" tab on the Print Dialogue box. You may get a warning from InD but ignore it to check that your printer settings aren't weird there.
