    A lady I have done work for in the past called me up on Friday asking me if I do car magnets. She said that she had some made before but one of them has been stolen and wanted to get another one.

    I told her because I didnt do the first one, I would be able to just make 1 to match what already has but I could make her a new set similar to what she had if that is what she wanted. Send me a pic of the original magnet and I will see what I can do.

    About 5 mins ago, this is what I got. Followed with

    I think my machine will break if I try and do this.

    Looking at that one, I bet the other one blew off while driving and wasn't actually stolen..

    this is probably one of those cases where if you just mock something up that's nicer she will bite and order a pair.

    usually people aren't even aware what is possible so they just want what they've always had, terrible as it may be.

    Perhaps you could take the same components and make them look a lot better.

    THis is kinda what I had done for her business cards a while back. She just wanted them to be plain. This seems to look a lot better to me then having everything on there.

    Nothing against the people images, it is just too much on the magnet. IMO

    They don't post them prices. I live with 4 women, I know how these things go.

    note: the "4 women" is my pentance in life.....a wife and 3 daughters. When I was 18, my wish was to live with 4 women.....and God granted that wish. Although I learned two invaluable lessons.....1) be careful what you wish for, & 2) God has a sense of humor.

    :banghead:

    THAT MAGNET SUCKS.

    I used to care, and work extra hard to get the customer a nice design that works....now I just give them what they want and move on to a fun job. All that time I wasted on losers who go out of biz in 2-3 years I wish I had that time back in my life.

    Reminds me of the joke where the guy finds a genie and the genie says he'll give him whatever he wants, but the catch is that his wife gets double... so the guy tells the genie to beat him half to death. :rock-n-roll:

    I hate to break this to you but yours isn't a whole hell of a lot better than hers.

    Hey sky..... that's not fair. That's when I was all bulked up and working out too much. Everything is proportionate there. Just that my big muskles make it appear different.

    Offer to make her a new set for your usual price.
    Use the Brody lose 99% of the sh!tty clip art.
    She doesn't get to see the preview.
    Man that is cow-kicked ugly.
    Make sure to round the corners.
    Looks like cheap mag put over a door with lots of Bondo in it.
    Blecch.
    Love....Jill

    SHUUUUT....UUUUP!!! Thats one of the nicest layouts I have seen in years. I love the font choices, colors for the type of business, clipart is sick! and check it out!...those huge condensed brackets surrounding the vertical area code, compliment the reverse panels. I would be carefull duplicating the design. Be sure there are no copyrights on that.
