I just assume graphic designers make more than prepress people here because they take like 26 weeks of vacation a year it seems. Gotta have money to visit exotic locations around the world that often. Or maybe they were just born into a wealthy family and graphic design makes it look like they have a real job but mainly it is just a hobby. :rotf:

Instead of calling yourself a prepress freelancer call yourself a prepress consultant. They make way more money than freelancers.

just updated my linkedin profile!

Me thinks he was being sarcastic.

You thinks right, but on the wrong direction. -or i didn't get it -

I was being sarcastic on how the company worked.

In terms of error fixing we had 3 kinds of customers

A) Those with a good creative dep.
I mailed them the issues, files came back good most of the times.

B)Those with average creative deparments.
Had to guide them trough phone

C)Those who didn't need a creative department.
Had to use my trusty pitstop 9 or my illy cs (no cc) or my cs2 ps/indy or all of the above.

To be honest i never expected to last that long...

''Your shop/clientele sounds like MANY in the industry here in the states.''

20something years ago i thought that in the states and central eu everything was done right, management/workflow/software hardware upgrades, all was done under careful planning and detailed procedures.

Then fckin internet came.

Nope, it's the same shitshow everywhere. Some places are better, some worse.
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.
