    Where in the world might you be located?

    Also, if in the US, do you have a reseller's tax ID so you can get wholesale pricing (if sales tax on goods is required in your state)?

    Since this is in the "Web Design" forum, are we talking about an online catalog or print?

    i have a new client who wants foiled business cards (for their logo). they told me the price they got from their old GD was 13 cents per card @ 10k, but that is about the best price i can get before markup....

    I see. I guess I was too worried that if I used a thicker type face, it will compete with the name too much. I could definitely try though....

  • graphic/web color display problem

    I have a color issue that's driving me crazy.

    I just uploaded part of a page on a new site i'm working on just to make sure the nav looked ok on all browsers.

    What i noticed is that the colors of my graphics look true to my original design on Safari but horrible on Firefox. Firefox displays the colors significantly lighter than they should be and i can't figure out why. Every other site i visit looks virtually identical in safari and firefox.

    I am designing the site in illustrator cs2 and then copying and pasting each graphic element into photoshop cs2 where i save for web.
    I haven't changed any of my color settings - illustrator and photoshop both set to the default sRGB IEC61966-2.1

    I am completely baffled at this point, so any help is appreciated.

    here is a link to the test page i am working on. it only has a menu at the top and part of a background image:

    Why aren't you saving for web/exporting directly out of Illustrator?

      Are you working in CMYK colour space in Illy or RGB?

        Try running the PNGs through a compressor like PNGMonster

          yep, i just needed to run it through a png compressor to strip out all the metadata. finally found a mac compatible program: http://pornel.net/imageoptim/en

          I had never heard of this - thanks!!!

            if the graphic is saved with a color profile attached to it, this problem will occur.

            the compressors strip out the color profile data and magically you have the same colors. But all you really need to do is save without a color profile.
