    I'd think you'd want to be careful that it doesn't look obviously fake, like the first photo.
    The second one is strangely shadowless and floaty.
    The third one is ok, the objects are actually...

    It's a good start. I like the middle one how it has highlights in the text, but I think the drop shapes are way too big. Have you considered working with candy stripes?

    Yes.

    There are many ways to skin a cat.

    Personally, I would do this in Photoshop so that I had more control of the final colour. Photographing colours can result in differences...

    I've never used Zazzle or CafePress, but I've bought a few things on Etsy.

    If your CafePress store is doing well, why not sell your Zazzle items on CafePress and see how you go? It might...

          I always get quotes from three printers to determine printing costs, then add my design costs which are based on the amount of time I expect to spend on the job before quoting the client.

              I didn't say that.

              Sorry, re-reading my post it was kinda misleading. What I meant was that you can't just guess what your printing cost was going to be. You should always find out what your actual cost is and go from there.

                  My First time on this forum

                  Hi All,

                  I found this forum by accident and thought I would join up. I've been in Design/Prepress/Printing for 24 years. Wish I had something like this forum throughout my career.


                  Printing Prices:

                  Always get your prices that include Everything....Including Printing, Proofs, Overs, Sales Tax (If Applicable) Shipping, Delivery. Be as specific as you can with Bindery, Folding, stitching, Shrikwrapping, etc. Ask what Pre-Press charges may apply to your specific program. Some Printers may not be able to accept your Scrapbook Pro Files without charging to fix them. Ask for the Pre-Press rate just in case you want the printer to make minor changes. Make sure you have a quote in writing.
