    Just had 'friend' of mine who "prints t-shirt tranfers" ask me for urgent help with his ink jet printer. He can't get it to print teal, keeps coming out blue. I suggested he match the color up with the closest Pantone color then get the CMYK formulation to enter into his color mixer - start with that. He has no idea what I am talking about. Pantone? CMYK? HUH? He doesn't even know what program he is using. Not much I can do to help.

    Have a great weekend everyone, it's raining here but I'm still planning to head to the park for German Days after work. Johnsonville Bratwurst, beer and the Jerry Schneider Polka Band!

    Sounds like the same type of person that says "what file do you want pdf, eps, etc?" Then you think, wow, this might be easy, and then you get the file. It's just a jpeg saved inside an eps that ends up being like three times the size it needs to be.

    I had that the other day. Customer supplied a PDF of a jpg. The file was 1.7GB. Yes, GB. For a 1’ x 1’ sign. Worst part about it, was it was just a blue background with white writing, and it was still pixelated. He’d saved a low res jpg at 2400dpi or something thinking that would save it.
