    500 Business cards (ASAP)

    Cool. Must have stopped charging, they did for a while but I last dealt with them about two years ago.

    500 Business cards (ASAP)

    My best guess is it's GF Smith stock. GF Smith Give them a call. They used to send the swatch out for free, but I think they charge for it now. To be honest it's worth having their swatch as a conversation piece. It's one of the few times you'll consider paper to be sexy. Some of it...

    Solo Press - Dissapointing!!

    Yup, blue's a pain. So are metallics. Red can at times be a sod too.

    GD work for flyers & posters

    Now you're contradicting yourself. You're now saying that there's no point unless there's financial reward. Which is it, passion or necessity? See above; surely if you would "still do it" without remuneration because you "love work" it will "defeat the object of it all". I think you...

    Solo Press - Dissapointing!!

    Solo Press What the OP said. Trimmed too soon, the guilly puts a lot of pressure on the sheets. Next thing you know people will be offering 24hour turnaround on reflex blue.

    GD work for flyers & posters

    I'm sure Scope, Cancer Research etc will let you do it for nothing. Not initially maybe, but most would give up. I would put my 10,000,000 on that. How fulfiling is producing something that ultimately is heading for the bin. Personally I would do something humanitarian; I dont' know what, it...

    But if you don't need the extra money, there's no need to work. You can do something far more fulfilling if you have enough cash to give you the choice to do what you want.

    Very good. Tail is tail within certain perameters though.

    GD work for flyers & posters

    It was a rhetoric Peter, I answered the question for you. I did say a wasted life, not time. I'm not going to get into a debate on the meaning of life but one thing which is not moot, is that we can't take anything physical with us when we shuffle off this mortal coil. I certainly don't want...

    GD work for flyers & posters

    And how much do you pay them? I don't recommend anyone go into GD as a career choice anymore. Entry level remuneration is really not a lot better than working at Tesco. I'm buggered if I'm going to think for less than £30 an hour. I don't admire that work ethic. To me that's a waste of a life...

    In terms of design though, it's a very labour intensive process. How can you increase efficiency there; amphetamine sulphate? Seriously though, as far as I can see you can only really increase efficiency by reusing design work (and there's plenty out there that do that) which has the opposite...

    Help To Settle An Argument please...VAT

    Your boss is correct though to an extent that is really determined by the principal supply. If the principal supply is for a zero rated item then ancilliary services that go with it can follow the rating of the principal supply. Design can be considered an ancilliary service and I think...

    Waterpoof paper

    There are a coupleof polyester papers as the OP mentioned. I seem to recall that Robert Horne did one. There's Tyvek too; love that stuff though it's a bit pricey.
