Hey. New to the site, great stuff on here by the way. I have a question/rant. Recently went freelance after years of studio work and loving everything about it, except the daily grind of dealing with printers. I waste so much freakin time saving and re saving PDFs blah blah because printers a. Are bloody useless b. are too lazy to open and check files and c. Don't have upto date software. Is it my responsibility to waste hours each week finishing artwork in a myriad different ways due to the proclivities of an individual printer. I say no, not really. This is proving a real problem when clients choose their own printer. Does anyone have any advice? I am starting to think that telling a client from the outset what they will receive from me and then it's the responsibility of the printer. Oh and another issue. Printers lying to clients about how files are submitted, so as to pass the buck for slipping deadlines. Where does the designer stand against clients chosen printers??? Thanks. Rant over.
