    Are you the designer, the printer, the merchant or all of them? A designer doesn't typically base fees on the number that will be printed. A printer, on the other hand, does do that. Even when a designer...

    Better photo, but flip it so the eye travels left to right. Having on the left side it kind of stops the eye there.

    It's an interesting-looking graphic, but for the reasons already mentioned, it doesn't really meet the usual requirements of a logo. I'm not a big fan of Lobster either, but that's just me.

  • Yo Print Gurus! What's the technical term?

    For the phenomenon that occurs when trimming saddle stiched booklets - that the interior pages will have more trimmed off the outer edges due to the thickness of the paper - the more pages, the greater the excess trim at the interior pages.

    We can't recall it right off hand - I told my colleague to make something up, like Multi-page die drift, since the guy he's trying to describe this to wont know what we're talking about anyway - but he's just gotta be right, so be a friend and give us the skinny!

                Pretty sure that's the slug area. Usually at the bottom of the page....... yes it's not very interesting is it?

                  Thanks, now we can sound like perfessionals when trying to explain this to the Chinese!
