    Advice - Client asking for files (not a case of ownership)

    Just a quick update... I had hoped they would reply asking me to carry out the small job for them so I could work around giving them the files. That didn't go to plan....! They asked for files as they didn't want to spend the money on something so small. I've had to say that I should have...

    Advice - Client asking for files (not a case of ownership)

    Oh don't worry - I don't send anything final without payment, trust no one and all that jazz! However I've never really had to send what I would call 'significant' native files before and certainly won't without final payment of the job and an extra fee for the files if it does go down that...

    Advice - Client asking for files (not a case of ownership)

    Thanks CLHB, I've been reading up this evening about other people's opinions and although the view is somewhat mixed, it seems the majority falls with this! I've put the situation back in their court at the moment asking if there is anything I can help them with - they left the last e-mail...

    Advice - Client asking for files (not a case of ownership)

    So I have a client of mine, a new client I should add, asking for me to send over my Illustrator files for them to edit and make into another piece of artwork. I was slightly weary when I took this client on board as they had been creating their own artwork/labels however they have come to a...

    What Digital Production Press???

    We have a Konica Biz Hub Pro C5501 or something similar to that code, it is 4 years old. It's awful and would not recommend it to anyone...we'll be looking at a new press soon too so it would be nice to see if anyone has any suggestions. Our Konica has huge issues with coated paper...

    Design/Artwork for Flexo

    Hi everyone Just a quick, generally question really! Flexo is a relatively new thing to me this year when I've been involved with the rebrand a clients old labels, which get printed Flexo. Firstly, does anyone have experience designing for Flexo and do you approach it in any other way...

    7 things you should NEVER ask a designer!

    "I've scanned in this document, can you just copy and paste the text and use the same layout and get it back to us? Shouldn't take too long as you have everything you need" I mean REALLY?!! I have had far too many encounters to put them all down but this was my most recent.

    More of a request

    Some creators may group a file or make a compound from it. Try right clicking and selecting "release compound path" or "ungroup" Goes without saying that you must make sure you are downloading an eps file or a .ai file as these are vectors.

    Portfolio Size / Pina Zangaro

    Just a cover sort of thing, although it fits well in the hand, landscape up in the the armpit - lol - if you understand what I mean? Easy to carry and looks smart. Also great for keeping CV's flat in when going to job interviews! (back in the day for me, but never say never again!)

    Portfolio Size / Pina Zangaro

    I have an A3 portrait Vista in White - heres the link. Pina Zangaro : Products : Vista Presentation Books I bought the pack with everything so mine came with a carry case which protects it all the time. I can't say I've noticed any scratches on it but then again it is white and it's probably...

    Depends what you're using it for but it may be worth your while to just download a vector file and edit it to suit? I also find downloading vector files helps me to understand how the effect has been created.

    Help needed - Twitter Background

    Not possible to do it for all sizes as far as I'm aware but if you resize to the largest it tends to work across all sizes well enough.

    Portfolio Size / Pina Zangaro

    I absolutely love my Pina Zangaro portfolio... expensive but worth every penny in my opinion. I resized things down, as said above - I also prefer to photograph things and presented everything on single pages, project per page, no more than 12 pages.
