    Comment on 7pt. Font size is industry standard for body text?

    It was more than just putting up with a less knowledgeable person. She wanted to control everything and do it all her way. Much of what she said is so over the top wrong that it just baffles me and tried...

    Cool idea! I'm actually working on a blog myself. Just some advice that was given to me by someone who studies journalism is to have a years worth of content ready. So if it's a weekly blog, have no less...

    I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.

    There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

    I would never hand over the work to an untrustworthy client without getting payment. You let this happen.

    tell me what you think of the lettering in #1... I haven't had much time to work on these yet.. but it's due this week so I gota get to it.....I'm also a little worried that the magazine's printer might take offense to the message.....the text should show up to be a clean white....what do you all think?

    I thought the first one was brillant. Very clever. The second one, although clean, doesn't do much for me.

          I'm confused, is the lettering in the first supposed to be all jumbled or are you dislexic? Is that part of the joke cuz i don't think people will get it.

            I like the message - and although the first one is very clever...I don't see how that is offering a high standard of printing? Jumbled words just don't have the right semiotics for me; they say mistakes; problems and they do not have particularly good connotations.

            If it was me - i would go with the second one - as the message itself should be enough to get people thinking on the lines that your printers are cheaper and more efficient.

            Remember, not all adverts have to be amazingly complicated and award winning; sometimes just stating what your company can do is enough
            I find your lack of faith disturbing...

              def: I only freelance...

              I was excited about the letter jumbling thing actually working at first, but I think you're right when you say this is not the right ad for it. I'm starting to think it detracts from the message, in that it gets you thinking about the jumbling too much... how about the actual message, does anyone think the mags printer might object to printing it?

                I would if i was them! I'd be thinking about another idea just in case it comes up... tho I don't know if they can refuse to print it or not...

                    new design

                    after some consideration I've almost decided to go this way with the ad. let me know what you think of the new copy. We were a little of worried about the previous copy being offensive.

                              i loved the message of the first ad.. but if i were the printer i would have found it pretty offensive! shame...
