    We don't even consider applications that don't list a degree where I work, though even people with degrees can have terrible portfolios. Out of probably 30 applicants from our most recent opening, maybe...

    We have a $250,000 digital printer and the backups can be up to 2mm out. That is within specifications.

    So the answer is no. It's near impossible to get a printer that is bang on. Which is...

    Looks like it's not a free font. But $25 for four fonts in a typeface is really reasonable.

    Does anyone know where I can find the Mon Amour Script alt font, or is it just a pay font?

    are there any websites or anything out there that I can sign up for for free or check out daily, that keeps up with all the new things in graphic design?

      If you are taking about the design side of this business, you should be reading Communication Arts magazine and Print magazine. Check their web sites. Print has a daily newletter and CA has news section with links to current information.

      These magazines feature design that is out front and pushing the edge of the envelope. However, generally, the current current trends in design are not earth shaking.

        I find out a lot of cool stuff just by following certain people on Twitter.

        As for publications, I like How, Computer Arts, and GDUSA.

        But, be well-rounded. Read stuff that is design-related, but not graphic design. One of my favorite magazines is American Style. I also get a lot of inspiration from photography magazines.
