    Best way to do transparency on drop caps?
    AJP
    I have some large drop caps and wish to make them 30% transparency. However, ID doesn't seem to offer the option to make a single letter (within a block of text) a separate transparency. Short of coloring...

    The debates are going to be a sideshow. It's almost like the rest of the country doesn't exist right now except for NH and Iowa. None of them have addressed any really important issues. And I mean on...

    Starting a business after being in the industry working for someone that knows what they are doing BEFORE freelancing makes more sense.

  • Time allocation & Pricing

    Hi

    Am in UK, but my question isn't Continent related. So hope I may get some useful feedback.
    Am a Pre-Press Op about to go Self employed artworking. Now, seeing as I don't have a portfolio or database of work, I can't check back to get any answers for this: (except to say all those without a knowledge of back end don't spend nearly enough time on finished artwork!)

    How much time allocation would you put to Print design/artworking jobs (more from scratch). I've done some RnD stuff in past for Corp ID & drum about 6-8hrs if I'm Finicky. But for other run of mill, Stationery, Brochures etc how do you allocate a timescale which would be indicative to your quoted price?

    Also, how would people approach the issue of pricing. Fixed Hourly rate, no matter the client or by budget? Should I ask to work within the budget knowing full well I'll probably get Screwed on price...

    Hope for any useful info as I realise this is a 'how long is a length of string' request...
    Thanks
    Andy
