‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson
Yeah, tell us more about your printing needs. Clubflyers.com does great work with a 24 hr. turnaround, but the selection of options is rather limited. I use them for all my flyering needs. Plus, they're running a special right now to celebrate their new site. Free ground shipping! (on certain orders)
like i said, I only trust em cause I worked with them, doing the file preps, thus far everything I've printed for myself or for clients has gone right, only because I've let my hand touch it. the prob you had is one of the probs common to online printing, not having the ability to physically proof the print.
Sucks really, but its the way things are going for small business printing...and the large print houses are hurting from it.
I'm happy to say that StepPrinting came through wonderfully. I ordered the cards (250 qty. 100 lb stock) Thursday night after work and I received them today (though I am close to them so shipping was only one day). No rush, nothing. 3 business day turnaround, can't beat that.
The cards look good though the design was extremely simple. There wasn't a lot to screw up but they look good none the less.
Calebninja: Sorry my post was not meant to attack your criticisms on youtube tutorials and blogs, but more so to spark the question as to the resources available to make a designer better outside of school....
