    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.

    B, we pay illustrators to create maps for projects and end up paying them a royalty based fee. The number of copies are limited by contract and they are free to license the map art for others. I don't...

  • Printing garment hangtags

    I need to get some garment hangtags printed for a client that's on a tight budget. Does anyone know of any printers that specialize in this?

    I've quoted a few of my usual cheapie printing sources and they actually seem quite expensive. The file is not too elaborate though...4 color front, 1 color back, trimmed to approx 1"x3" with drilled holes.

    Any suggestions?
    thanks

    I think there's a company called Northwest Tags. I've used them before a long time ago.

      Can you print it as a 1 or 2-color tag? You might save some money that way.
      You want it when!? Well in that case, let me pull my magic wand out of my ass and take care of that for you.

          Your local phone book will have some ad specialty companies. These companies are part of a network and can use the best supplier for the need. If you are reselling to your customer, this is not the cheapest as the ad specialty companies are not the printers. They simply pay an annual fee to be part of the network and resell for the suppliers they deal with. Aside from hang tags, they handle just about anything that can be printed on.
