Although some may get fancy I doubt anyone will be spending a lot of
money on printing these cards, normal printouts on standard paper and
then cut out is sufficient in my opinion to serve the purpose. The
rounded corners are part of the design, not the cut out guides which
you can not see in the sample image I have been posting.
> 2) If you are going offset, you can keep the rounded corner but youneed to lose the 2 color, make it all one color, the blue or the
green but not both. You'll increase your printing costs.
Offset?? You wanna pay for that? :) I might get "fancy" and print a
couple out in color on card stock but I feel regular black and white
laser or inkjet is more than sufficient.
> 3) This is a "full bleed" design, that means you've printed rightout to the edges. Nothing wrong with that, any traditional printer
can handle it, but you need to print BEYOND the edges just in case
the printer is lined up a wee bit off. If you are printing this out
at home, the only full bleed Avery card stock is the micro-perf stuff
which has pretty jaggy edges. The perf-less stuff, which is great by
the way, is not yet available in full bleed.
This is not a full bleed design.
> 4) Finally, lose the yahoo groups URL. I'm sorry, it is just tooawful. Keep the www.uniquaria.com URL and fix the www.uniquaria.com
website to address Tom's objections: 1) it should quite clearly tell
people how to join (yeah, it currently seems to, but Tom's email
suggests otherwise, 2) lose the email link that emails Tom, he
doesn't need that. Make the link email the Uniquaria list, if they
are not members, they'll get a bounce from yahoo.
I think that would be a better solution however the goal of this card
can be acchieved using either URL. If the website gets updated in the
future I can always edit the card and change the URL. Right now I
think the card is ready and it would be a shame if it had to be
delayed while the website gets updated.
