also why 5K cards????? I would go with a low volume first before commiting…..

If this is the case then you need to ask whether signmaking is really the job for you! 😀
Seriously, we’ve all done it. It’s just that sometimes it is more expensive than others.

I really know the feeling…
artwork by the customer
pre-press of a 60cm x 40cm brochure, at some point you need to rotate it 90 (only change in the original) to fit 2 for paper sheet, film, plates, print 150.000 just to find that there was a lense that didn’t rotate … soo you need to repeat the all job.
Now go and tell the boss.
MemberJanuary 27, 2006 at 3:40 pm
Dave you’re absolutely right. . like I said my fault for getting complacent.. because I didn’t have a customer to keep happy an wanted the cards ASAP I didn’t request a proof. I thought I’d checked everything, had a mate proof read it, who also missed the mistake.
Tim I went for 5000 because there is hardly any difference in price between 1000 and 5000.. . I don’t really consider 5000 business cards to be high volume. . although point taken, on this particular occasion its all just waste paper !

My first batch of business cards were spelt fine, I just put two numbers the wrong way round in the mobile number (hot)
Luckily the land line was also on there 😀

I know the feeling mate, just got a call today, client saw his new signs for the 1st time this morning. All 3 are 4m in the air, 2 are 4m long and one is 8m long, 3 guys and a cherry picker for 5 hours to install. Rings and tells me I’ve put .com.au instead of .net.au on the web address 🙁 Fortunately I didn’t print them as I was going to originally, so it is just computer cut.
Checked his proof and it was correct 🙁 When I transposed it from Corel for printing to sign wizard for cutting I put in the wrong address. 😥
I feel like a right clutz right now …. and he will not pay my $6000 until it is fixed 🙁
