    Thanks for your feedback Print Driver. Let me clarify a few things you brought up in your post.

    In most cases, freelance work won't be considered as industry experience, especially when you have no other related professional experience or education.

    That being said, listing each job...

    Yeah sorry, but I'd also call this a full miss. The pointed ends don't improve the uninteresting font. The face and crown suggest the Statue of Liberty, but really don't look anything like it.

    Where were you in 2010 when I sold my company?

    Seriously though, I do know of a company here that is more than likely going to be selling out soon. Other side of the country though. If that...

    In my eyes that doesn't work at all. You shouldn't torture typeface in this kind of way. What is the reasoning in sharping ends of the letters?
    Also, raised hand like this doesnt resemble statue...

  • Wide format guys - why is this?

    I know some wide format printers want files in RGB rather than CMYK - what is the reason for this?

    Some of the printing technologies used by wide format printers can give you a better gamut of colours than those from CMYK. If working from RGB the gamut isn't restricted as it would be in CMYK. Always ask your printer first.

      Ahhh...then I am assuming wide format can reach a wider gamut because some have the orange & green ink in addition to the other 4?

        In addition or in place of. There are several different ways of hitting it BIG.

            There is an RGB print process. Continuous tone prints done by a Durst Lambda or Cymbolic Sciences Lightjet use RGB lasers to expose the various films. The film is processed just like photographic paper. Images should be RGB but always ask about color mode when using Illustrator, etc. They might surprise you and say CMYK. I have a couple vendors who do it that way.

            Most inkjet type machines are CMYK. Some print vendors apply their own custom color curves so they will take either RGB or CMYK for inkjet output. Others with less strict color management want CMYK.

            Always ask.

                Hi Binar.

                Orange and green ink?
                Where?
                Not commonly.
                Usually the standard 8 color (CMYKcmyk) or Fast-4 if an 8-head machine (CMYKCMYK). 6-head only has CMYKcm. 4-head machine is obvious (CMYK)
                (Small letters stand for 'light')
                Each inkjet has its own gamut depending on the inkset. Pigment inks (which is what you want) tend to have a narrower gamut than dye base. Lambda has a completely different gamut altogether. Making everything match sux.
