Prepress may not be stupid but I'm not sure about upper management.


They do some silly and strange things but giving away their money is not one of them. At least my owners don't.

Anyone want to have a guess as to what has  just happened with this job.
Keep in mind I have probably spend over 30hrs of my time trying to figure out a solution on this one.

HA!

Can I have some of what you're smoking Joe?
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

One of our customers is a HUGE eco firm that does solar panels and clean energy. They're in several states. In the past two weeks, we've thrown out over 5 million envelopes and over 5 million combined preprinted shells because they will no longer be using them.

They probably had to wait for the person that originally created them to get back from vacation.

I called a customer last night about their funky pages and she told me she was actually on the beach in Florida while talking to me.
