    As I said, A business card is a face-front representation of your company. Think about how you want that card to represent you. If you want to look like a free internet template, have at it.

    Guess I'm not an art snob. I actually like Kinkade's "work" even with a formal art education.

    Hey,

    Iím extremely new to prepress and I know maybe a touch of the basics. I hear a lot of you guys saying working at a print shop is one of the best things you can do for yourself as a designer.

    I really want to get a good understanding for this stuff. I feel so lost on this forum sometimes when you guys talk about this stuff. Example spot colors and gamut are a coupleÖ. I feel I could learn so much more from this forum if I only new what these things meant.

    Do you guys know any good books, or websites that can help me out?

    Thanks
