Dude, i just enjoy seeing the engagement. I'm working from home, so i'm playing ketchup reading all of the badass careers or fields everyone is in.You sure you want us to get into preflight, workflows, plating, digital and offset printing? I can talk all day about it.
Here ya go... in-house designed 56 page + cover perfect bound book for one of our local school systems. We've been swamped with stuff for several school systems. About to release plates and CIP4 ink data for this one. Our ad is at the middle, bottom of that 12 page sig.The few printers that are left alive here are extraordinary low end bottom feeders. We absolutely take ANYTHING. I mean ANYTHING. Stuff that hasn't existed in DECADES. PageMaker files, QX 4, scribbles on paper, Publisher, PowerPoint, catalogs in EXCEL!!!! ANYTHING. What few PDFs we do get, aren't remotely print ready, and usually require endless rounds of changes and manipulation. (don't get me started)
I had one of the early 6Rs, ... 95 maybe? something like that. Now I've got KLR. Not great, but functional for what I need.
oh, and another of my classic favorites,... customer will design something using Canva or the like, TAKE A PICTURE OF IT WITH THEIR PHONE, and then we have to recreate that. (did I mention we don't charge for any of this?)
CompTIALegal Supervisor for a shitty debt collection company. I hate it. Have IT background simply from being on a computer my whole life (gamer, pirate, networking, hardware etc.) but never went to school or obtained certs or anything. I am trying to figure out what to do lol.
