    Disclaimer

    Hey everyone! Was wondering if you guys offer your customers some sort of disclaimer on invoice or in person about not bein responsible for weather damage(peeling, fading) vandalism, etc on stickers, banners, signs. I was thinking of adding something on the bottom of the invoice of not being responsible for any damages done outside my control. I was also looking to add something about accepting proofs verbally or written and order will be printed as is,etc. Do you guys have any ideas? Thanks!

    advice needed

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if i could get someones point of view on a job i just did. I just did a full color perforated film on a rear windshield of a ford f150 truck. I did a wet installation just like other perf jobs i ve done in the past. While installing the perf, the customer did not expect the color to be duller(which i explained before printing it) A week later, the customer brought the truck because the corners were peeling off on both sides. Ive seen jobs ive installed in march and they dont look like this one that i just installed a week ago. The customer sounded really iritated to the point where she started cussing the job though.I know theres a possibility i did something wrong and theres another possibility she didnt like the way it turned out and shes peeling the perforated film herself. What would be the best thing to do? redo the perforated or return $110 i charged or redo the job in vinyl lettering(which she wants) and charge her for the cost of my vinyl or redo the vinyl lettering at no cost to her or try n fix the corners with adhesive Any help is appreciated guys!!!! Thanks!!!

    charging for 36 feet of cut stickers

    Thanks for the reply guys. I only have a 15'' cujtter, thats why I only cut in 15'' rolls. Im using Oracal 651 white. times are tough and competition is tough(especially where im located), What do you guys think would be a reasonable price to charge in either scenario? II have the inventory to do it, its just i would like to be cost effective on my part that way i can pass the saving onto the customer. Like Gripy says, customer can turn around and get it done some where else. I put the letter tight but theres probably a one inch gap between them, which i would cut and each word would install seperately. How much would you guys charge for the whole piece? Thanks

    Graphic and Lettering Proportions?

    Theres a technique to make the graphics proportional to the truck. When your taking a picture of the truck, take the best picture you can by trying to get the whole truck in the picture and at the truck level. Take a measurement of the door, lets just say the door measured 40''. Once you take the picture into your program, make a 40'' square and try to size up the truck picture big enought so the truck door matches the exact same size as the 40'' square, now every graphic you place on that picture will be at size. JM2cents.

    charging for 36 feet of cut stickers

    Hi everyone! I have a customer who wants to get some lettering that he will install. I only cut 15inch rolls. The lettering is going to be 8'' tall and 36 feet long, since i only have a 15 inch roll, im going to have an excess of 7'' roll that i will save for later use. What price are you guys at? (I attached a picture, the top roll is 36 feet long. If i do the lettering at 6.5'' tall, i can place them together in the 15'' and cut down the length to 15 feet in length and I wouldnt have any excess material that I would have to save for late use.... How much would u guys charge in either situation? Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!

    50% deposit etc

    Hi! Everytime i meet with a customer, they expect me to do the job then they will pay me. the way I work is 50% deposit and the rest once the job is done. What do you guys think would be a good phrase to place on the back of a business card? 50% deposit Required" In big bold red letters, lol? Or 50% deposit Required on all work?

    Embroidery image format

    I think the highest resolution. I may be wrong, but depending what program the embroidery shop has, i think vector format would be better because there are some programs that automatically digitize a vector logo or a jpeg. Some programs have like a corel draw embroidery plug in, never used it though. so i guess it just depends on the shop, they would usually digitize the artwork for a fee.

    Graptech repair

    Hello everyone, anyone know of any places who repair graptecs? I got a broken down graptec for over year now(video below) I found the plotter doctor here in california,but Im 5 hours away from them and they close at 3 a clock in the afternoon and they cant quote me the machine same day, I would have to leave it for some time so they can tell me how much its gonna cost, since im far, i would rather leave it so it gets repaired. Im in the middle of buying a 24'' graptec for $1000, I think its better if I just put those 1k into the repair of this cutter and I would have a 54'' cutter instead of a 24'' :-\ :-\ .... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpTtOFb3X9o&feature=channel_video_title
