    for some reason i can't save in flexi any more as a pdf.. I can't find that option when i go to export... I don't know what happened there



    another dumb question, working in adobe photoshop, which i'm still learning, i found a tutorial on how to make business cards in it. Now, the tutorial says to work with CMYK colors, which I am, but why do they look different, like.... how to put it, not as bright as i want...

    Because CMYK is a printed color that is limited by the gamut of what a printer can reproduce. Oh heck... Go read this LOL...

    If I design business cards in Flexi I save them as jpeg at 400dpi. Never had a problem sending them to Gotprint.com, come out perfect everytime.

    Export as a jpeg or eps depending on the artwork. Works fine for Flexi files.

    See the cutting isn't hard, its weeding 7 point text that needs skill, then only 999 more cards to do.
