    I'm glad I'm not here...

    Does anyone remember doing this?

    Way back when I first started as a graphic designer, my then Art Director explained to me how she used to do that sort of thing. That was the last time I ever complained about clearcutting duty.

      I don't mind clear cutting as long as I have lots of time to do it. Rush clear cutting jobs are terrible.

          One of my professors had us do something similar to this once because he figured we didn't appreciate our computers enough.
          Light a man a fire and he will be warm for a short while. Light a man afire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

            Well that's a novel idea. Did it work?

              Yeah, when I'm in the mood, I actually find clearcutting quite relaxing.

              Still, we had this one book that would sometimes result in me clearcutting 30 cars in an afternoon. I actually had it down at one point, so that I could clearcut a car in under 10 minutes.

                  You all have me beat. I couldn't imagine doing it this way. I am a spoiled brat and I feel so when I looked at this site. Thank you for making me appreciate in that moment the simplicity of the way things are now!

                            I just missed the paste-up era. My first job at that time was running a stat camera.

                              My first job in the industry was at a small printshop in 82 or 83. Our typesetter was more advanced than these guys were dealing with. It had a small BW screen so you could see what you were typing and spit out slicks from some kind of printer. The whole unit was about the size of a washer/dryer combo.

                              The rest of the process was all done by hand from layouts waxed up on the light tables to shooting and developing the film to stripping the negs and developing the plates.

                                That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

                                Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

                                Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
                                I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
