Quote from: born2print on November 09, 2021, 12:50:48 PMMy experience was the opposite. I did shipping / receiving, deliveries, bindery... THEN prepress from the bottom (filing, contacting, camera helper, color keys and bluelines)I think it gave me a much better understanding of what it takes to make product as good as it could or should be.There's other prepressers that really don't even understand things like binding styles or sig IDs by contrast. They may even know what to do mostly but don't truly understand it so if a wrench gets thrown in they are helpless.I much prefer production background to a rebaked designer or Kinkos type person.
Quote from: David on November 09, 2021, 04:31:25 PMthe deal about knowing the processs, is that your main job is to make the next persons job easier. sadly, that only works from prepress down, if it only started at the dezinger.

Hey hey now.....starts at this designer. I have a BAS in multimedia where they taught you how to do everything wrong (so I kind of understand where they get it from), then started a job in a bindery, moved onto prepress, learned how to run the presses, got into digital, and THEN started freelance designing. There are NO issues with my files.
Quote from: Foozball on November 11, 2021, 03:07:20 PMJust a reminder over the original intention of this post ... if you have solid prepress skills and am "on the fence" about your future, figure out a price (then add padding), apply and PLEASE HELP ME!My day today ...
