A client walked into my print shop one day looking to get some business cards and letterheads made for a religious organization.

Me: Do you have a logo that you would like me to use, or do you need me to create one for you? Are you going to want to print in one color which is cheaper, or full color?

Client: The logo needs to have a dove, a trumpet, a Bible, and a cross, with sun rays coming out. We will print in one color.

Me: Okay, I’ll see what I can come up with and email a proof to you.

I make a pretty decent one color logo considering all of the crap that needed to be in it and send him the proof. The next day he comes into the shop.

Client: The logo you made is ugly. Use this instead.

He hands me a tiny printout of the ugliest thing I have ever seen. It was a full color cut and paste disaster that included a podium, sheep, airplanes, Jesus, clouds, and more. Doing my job, I scanned it in and placed it on his business card and letterhead. He was happy.  I died a little.

Want to know if freelancing is for you?
