    Heineken was one of my favorites - I was pretty unimpressed with BMW's Guidelines, ya know, being German und all!

    I think Roth and TimDojo have considerably awesome critique's on your piece but I want to be a bit more direct and I might sound harsh.

    Quite simply, lose your name to the right and consider...

    I particularly like the reformatting of email.
    Like any designer would willingly choose Comic Sans...well... unless they didn't like the email sender maybe....

  • dye sublimation problems

    Hi, new to the world of dye sublimation printing.

    We are trying to profile an Epson 4000 printer with BASF dye sub inks using Photoshop 6.

    Hoping to figure out an inexpensive way other than countless hours of trial and error.

    Any help appreciated. Hope I am posting in the right place.

    best regards,

    Noel

    It isn't just a matter of profiling the printer but also taking into consideration the material you will be sublimating to and the carrier you are putting the ink on. Have you contacted either BASF, Epson, or your media supplier for ICC profiles?

    Your other option is to chart PMS colors and swap em. Images will need to be calibrated to custom curves though. More trial and error.
