    Me vs Printer

    Hi Andy, Just wanted to add that I would always look to create all artwork in vector format where possible, using illustrator for example you may have been able to vectorise your scanned logo or recreate quickly (depending on the design). Also illustrator will save your spots in all different...

    Logo Of The Day website

    I agree, design is like art sometimes - with a some love it, some hate it thing going on.

    Yellow print comes back lime green

    I agree with Pulse Print I have seen some digital printers setup for pantone or similar and use a pantone to CMYK converter - this will definitely cause your colour palette to change when printed. Litho printing is far superior to digital; I would always go litho over digital not just for...
