C. David Tobie Design Cooperative CDTobie@designcoop.com Same here, It's Epson papers & inks if I am sending out great, professional looking samples to editors, but which won't cost me an arm and a leg, and will be either returned to me somewhat dog-eared, or dumped in the office garbage (editors seem to love it if they don't have to worry about packaging everything up and sending it back!). If there is stuff they really want for reference, it stays in a filing cabinet anyway. I am not going to send something made with expensive archival inks on Somerset Velvet or whatever! Even for a more formal portfolio, using Epson means it's cheap to either change images as my work changes, or custom produce different portfolios for different types of clients - and if they do start to fade I can just run off new ones... Different horses for different courses as my old Gran used to say Tim, A - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
