    "S" is tough to read-- looks interesting. the glossy highlights seem to have multiple light sources tho...might want to double check.

    Tough to comment because I'm not aware of its usage...signage or a cup coaster-- how small will it ever be, because at one point the thin tag line with not be readable. So you would have to create a system....

    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking to invest in a font management software. I've used Suitcase Fusion ($119) before but I've been hearing good things about Font Explorer X Pro ($89).

    Your client needs to get you the dimensions of the door. Without that, one can only guess.
    In Illustrator use whatever units you want. I use inches. Too much math otherwise.

  • Query over laptop purchase...

    Hey guys...

    I've to give suggestions to my boss about potential laptops for him to issue me with for my job.

    They're not in a position to purchase Macs (which would be the most ideal for me)

    Any suggestions for something under a grand?..something that would cope with having PS, illustrator, Indesign etc open at once?..something with decent ram?...processor?..

    I was looking at these...http://www.euro.dell.com/ie/en/home/...=iedhs1&~ck=mn

    What do you think?...

    I've always been impressed by the Alienware range. But it might a bit pricey.

    Have you checked out the outlet stores?

    I got my Laptop from the Dell outlet.

    4 gb ram
    Dual core 2.56 ghz
    256mb graphics card
    2 x 160 gb harddrives
    wifi
    bluetooth
    loads of ports
    blu-ray player/dvd burner
    hi definition display
    etc.
    (oh and a full keyboard.... score, like my laptop has a sep number pad.)

    It was about 780


    You can pick some great bargains.

      I have had a Dell laptop since 2002 and it still runs. I have CS installed on it now. The only thing I upgraded later was the ram. bumped it up to 2G when I installed CS. After all these years the only thing that is wrong with it is it's not as pretty as my macbook air. But it's my first laptop and I can't seem to part with it.
