I got an email from my new client submodal a little over a week ago. we need some business cards for an event in a little over a week can you help us? yes. one midnight file set up later and one very long day on press and violá. Submodal designed and I helped out a little with the file prep. They are super techie web folks and I'm all dinosaur paper printer - together the two of us figured it out.
they are in Vegas now as I type at their conference with a very pro business card. It's not always possible for a few day turn around on a project, but if the schedule permits it works out wonderfully.
what does a production schedule look like for a project like this?
sunday - submit files for film and plates.
monday - make a mad dash for paper and a late night plate run.
tuesday - print all day with client on sight approving color.
wednesday - dry time.
thursday - dry time.
friday - final trim.
friday afternoon - card delivery.
