    I suspect the OP's characterization "fragrant smoke" might have been more accurately expressed as "wispy steam," which some people might also find fragrant or aromatic, when the coffee...

    Just curious how you can represent "fragrant smoke" in a logo. They generally aren't scratch-n-sniffs. I have to go with PD on this. If you want ideas for a design, you have to pay for them....

  • Varnish weight

    Please forgive this newbe question: Does adding a heavy varnish add any weight to a printing job? How much? I can't add more than 0.3 ounces to this job.

    that's pretty tight. you're probably going to want to mock one up on the right paper (or pay your printer to do it), and see if there's any way they can give you an idea of whether or not it will add that much to it. i'm assuming it'll have to do with how heavy it's put on, but i can't imagine it adding too much weight to it.

    YMMV, though. talk to your printer.
    Remember: Wherever you go, there you are.
