My day visit to TEAM printers in leeds:
this day at the printers was really useful to me as it showed and became more real the whole process was from estimating the work to putting up on a calender which was FULL of different design work to be printed. to how each of the machines worked. i found the people who stood on the facctory floor folding all the magazines and boxes the most fascinating how some process are still hand done. the embossing and foiiing was a techical process and relyed on hand eye coordination i hought alot of pressure must go on the worker and the cost of the designs go up when they have to have people folding and applying finishes. the whole experience just shouted out this is getting serious! getting things right in my designs now becomes much more realistic big mistakes big money!
