    It was more than just putting up with a less knowledgeable person. She wanted to control everything and do it all her way. Much of what she said is so over the top wrong that it just baffles me and tried...

    Cool idea! I'm actually working on a blog myself. Just some advice that was given to me by someone who studies journalism is to have a years worth of content ready. So if it's a weekly blog, have no less...

    I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.

    There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

    I would never hand over the work to an untrustworthy client without getting payment. You let this happen.

    If you don't have a contract and deposit, take this as an expensive lesson to make...

  • Printing on rubber?

    Doing an invite for a client who wants to do something with rubber. Anyone have experience printing on "rubberized" paper or special transparencies? FiberMark makes a paper call "Touché Cover" but the color selection sucks...

    Any suggestions would be of great help!

    The only time I've had this done, the job was silkscreened.....it looked like hell so we had a company foil the job....it looked pretty decent. They only drawback was the job had to be letterpressed really slow almost 1 at a time.

    Good luck

        We have done a few jobs on Touche Cover and you are right the color selection is very limited. We are about to print a job where the client could not find the color they wanted so we are going to print over the stock with another color - I'll let you know how it turns out.

          Whoah! I'd say that there's a line that needs to be drawn in your service model.

            Ya know Broacher, my first inclination was to suggest custom printed rubbers... Well, the outside of the package is custom printed...!...oh, heck, let's just drop this idea altogether... LOL!

              If I owned an abortion clinic, I would print some condoms that said something like "there's a 0.012% chance you're gonna have to call us after tonight," and then the number. Heh.
              IM me sometime! I promise I won't abbrev. any words under fourteen letters long.
