    Sigh, the tinypic isn't working. I had to deprecate the image even more to show you. I couldn't just attach a new image so I had to make a new post, please forgive me.

    Uh so embarassing....

    I can see your problem, but the gray just doesn't provide sufficient contrast to the rust-colored circle. Squint your eyes and the two just blend together. A color blind person would see almost no difference....

    Looks like I was writing my post while you were posting your revision, which I think is much better.

    If it were me, I would remove the faint type at the top that duplicates the smaller type....

    Definitely get the deposit up front. Cash, check or credit card if you have the ability. A lot of clients like to pay by credit card so they don't have to pay out cash until that bill comes in....

  • What to use for full color, 11x17, on 60lb-80lb paper?

    Hello,

    I'm new to the printing world, and I am looking for something very project specific here...

    I need to print:


    Full color...but depth doesn't matter much. Realistic photo quality is not that important... 600dpi or a litttle less would be fine I think.

    11x17 on 60lb-80lb paper. If it weren't for this all important requirement, I would probably just go with one of those new Xerox solid-ink phasers

    High Volume / fast? a high monthly duty cycle would be nice. I'm going to need to print about 50,000 of these 11x17 pages per month - 100k if you count that I need to print both sides. Decent cPPM for 11x17 would be nice.

    low cost per page.. the toner or ink or whatever should be very reasonable & parts should be readily available.

    low budget?... I'm trying to stay well under $5k for the printer if possible.

    I would like to go with some kind of digitial option if possible....

    Any suggestions?
