    These were ideas in my head that I made for fun not to be implemented in any way. Yes the banner is meant to be seen on a computer and because I had to screenshot both it looks smaller than it actually...

    How far away and in what situation do you expect that banner to be read? Lots of tiny type (unless you mean banner ad on a website.)

    Lots of HR departments scan in resumes and covert them to searchable text using OCR. Your resume wouldn't work for that. It might catch an art director's eye or appeal to a business owner who was impressed...

  • What does "camera ready" mean?

    I assume it means a layout file that is ready to be printed, such as a pdf.

    But we all know what assuming does...

    it is hard copy - a printed sample - for spot color work.

    If you have a document that is black and red, it prints the separations at high enough quality that the negs and plates for the job can be made from the prints.

    Edit: They would either be photographed or scanned for reproduction.

    The camera we had at the print shop where I used to work couldn't photograph screens.

                "Ready" doesn't pertain to files either does it? Last time I really saw a camera ready file was prolly the last time I saw a PMT!

                            Since we do mainly small run spot color stuff we still get camera ready art including old PMT's . Usually this stuff comes from customers who are e-tarded, use non GD programs or from business owners that demand we return their artwork. Occasionally we will get in some ancient artwork with tons of overlays and non photo blue lines nicely rubber cemented on a piece of board. I can only imagine what a pain in the ass it would be to make corrections to something like that.
                            Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.
