    In my freelance work, the contract is pretty clear about what the client is buying. If the contract says that the deliverables are one trifold brochure file delivered to a printer, that's exactly what...

    Unused designs - who owns them?
    EmberMike
    I've worked under the assumption that everything I do while on a client project belongs to the client. If I'm on the clock for them, what I do is theirs.

    That said, rarely do I ever have...

    Two-and-a-half weeks is not a long time to wait. I've recently had to wait 70 days for a payment, and at worst I've had a client who regularly took 120 days to pay. My contracts and invoices say Net 45,...

  • 2 colour printing

    I need an answer to a hopefully very simple (possibly obvious) question.
    I am preparing a 2 colour leaflet with Quark and Illustrator: black and a pantone colour. Can I leave black as black or do I need to specify it as a pantone/spot colour?

    Hope that makes sense, any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum raroo, you can leave it as plain old 100% black.

        Yeah, as long as it's 100% black you will be fine. A good tip would be to eliminate all the swatches you can from your document except the ones you need. That way you don't have any chance that something is a different color. The other thing is to print a PDF with separations on (if you don't have a print driver that can do it) and you will be able to see if it separates ok.
