Quality is Job One November 14, 2007 If some customized product sold by an artist turns out badly, it is NOT the printing company who gets blamed in the customer’s mind, it’s the artist. I’m now worried. « BubbleMania group now has a Fi… Gracey's BubbleMania Video #1 … » Journal Comments Murray Swift about 9 years ago That’s just one of our occupational hazards. After years of experience in producing commercial material for printing I have had to adjust to making sure that what’s on my screen is going to be printed properly. In the past we had hard machine proofs now with POD we (if our art is prepared correctly) live in hope that our customers receive prints as we intended, then again the client may have been seeing different colour casts etc on their screen than what you see on your callibrated screen…. a can of worms. The best way to overcome this, if ones resources will allow it, is to order sample prints first. DLKeur about 9 years ago It is an occupational hazard, yes. Unfortunately, I’m used to having hands on proofs and being able to pull at will from a production run. I run calibrated screens which are tested and verified for accuracy on a daily basis at network refresh. I run a bank of screens, not just one, blowing from hot to cold and spanning the gammas. And…you mention exactly what happned. I ordered a sample of one of my products and…….I’m worried now. Murray Swift about 9 years ago This typical Murray Swift about 9 years ago Oh your sample didn’t match your screen, that is a worry, especially if it’s way off! Gracey about 9 years ago uh oh – a product from rb? DLKeur about 9 years ago Out of square…badly. Very badly. Unwearable. DLKeur about 9 years ago Colors and printing good. No issue there.
