    What topics do we need the most help with? Software training, color management, printer maintenance, installation, wraps, other? Let's find out? I'd like to find out not just general topics but specifics. Using specific manufacturer names or brands is okay. Could definitely use this info to develop the right topics for webinars, seminars and more. Your generous help is appreciated.

    You left one of that I think a lot of shops are interested in- Job Management which would include pricing and job tracking

    Getting up to snuff with InDesign.

    Although being immersed in it like I am now will probably get me there.

    I agree, basic layout and design and how that works with the process of making a sale...

    How to make better presentations...

    Transitioning from promotional/wide format to architectural signage...

    When to use a stock sign, when to make a custom sign...

    I'll cast another vote for that topic. Just having a computer and graphic software does not a sign designer make. Even after many years of doing this, I know that I often need help in this department.

    The software gets confused because multiple choice is being allowed.

    is not on the list because all one has to do is surf the web. Find some stuff and paste it onto the white board.
    Print it and yer done. See, any one can do it. :Big Laugh

    This is absolutely a need I think. Were training some people here now and the lack of this information is more common that I thought.
