My first challenge was to find a printer. I sent e-mails to several, clearly stating what I wanted, asking for a quote. One never responded to my enquiry at all. The quote from another was so outrageously high priced that I did not even bother to acknowledge it.
The ones that did respond could not understand the concept of what I wanted. I was pretty clear, I thought....a 2.5" wide X 3.5" long card, with my company logo, company name and website printed close to the top, with the bottom part blank so I could punch holes to hang pendants from. I absolutely could not get them to understand what I was trying to accomplish. See below...
To top it off, all the printers were open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. only, no evening or Saturday hours. So, I couldn't even go in to see them in person to show them exactly what I wanted because my 'day job' is from, you guessed it.....8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. *big sigh*
I have a CD with all the artwork for my logo in numerous formats that I received from the artist who created it. None of those are what they are looking for though. Does anyone know what vector art with outlines in a CS2 version is? I haven't got a clue.
The worst part of all is that I've allowed my frustration to stall my progress....to keep me from trying to accomplish that which I really want to accomplish. It's blocked my ability to move forward with my plans. I've got to shake myself out of this funk.
