Custom Printing: When Press-Ready Art Files Misbehave

Sunday, August 29th, 2021

Photo purchased from …

I received a harried email from a colleague earlier this week. Her print book supplier was having problems with her art files.

Custom Printing: Polishing Hand-Drawn Illustrations in Photoshop

Monday, August 23rd, 2021

Forty-five years ago when I started as a writer, editor, photographer, and layout person in publications, I was in college. I was also studying fine arts, learning how to draw and paint.

After all, I needed to make a living, and publications work offered solvency whereas painting and drawing did not. (more…)

Sometimes we do simple custom printing work that I also write about in the PIE Blog (for instance, cutting designs into styrofoam plates used in meat packaging and then inking and printing them).

Commercial Printing: Is the Job Your Printer Just Delivered Acceptable?

Wednesday, August 4th, 2021

In the case of offset and digital printing, acceptable delivery has more to do with whether you can tell your custom printing vendor that you are satisfied with the product and he can bill you for the job.
