    I blame my hair loss on my job all the time.
    But with mine I'm hopelessly genetically impaired. Baldness for all males on Mom's side of the family.

    There's a stress condition called...

    Just a possibly faulty opinion on my part, but I think that you just wrote a prime example of one difference between a Canadian and U.S. viewpoint. Canadians value cooperation and working toward the common...

    I've never read any evidence that staying up late can cause hair loss, so I'm a bit skeptical. I stay up late, usually work during that time, am under a ton of stress, have been doing it for decades and...

    Comment on Illustrator file pixelates when exported as png
    HotButton
    Yes, it is exactly the equivalent of an image made in Photoshop. That is not a malfunction. Rasterized is rasterized.

    PNG is a raster-only format. A PNG exported from an Illustrator vector...

  • CD Cover Size

    I think there is a lot of confusion regarding cd cover sizes. No matter how you slice it or dice it, here is the sizes for a cd cover. I haven't encountered sizes different than these with all of the printers I've used. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me. Hope this helps as I've noticed a few posts on here regarding proper cd cover sizing!

    2 panel (meaning a front image with text and stuff on the backside)
    4.7188" x 4.75"
    that equals 119.8562mm x 120.65 mm

    4 panel (thats double the size of the two panel because it's folded in half giving you technically 4 pages)
    4.7188 x 9.5
    or 119.8562 mm x 241.3 mm

    Traycard (thats the back of the cd case and the spine)
    4.625 x 5.90625 this size allows for .25" on both ends for the spine
    or 117.475 x 150.02 mm with 6.35 mm allowed on both ends for the spine

    CD Itself
    Most printable areas of a cd are 116mm x 116 mm with a 27 mm hole in the center

    Right on, Cornfed. And if you need templates for what you are designing, take a look here:

    I use them and they work out great. They have quite a variety.
