Off-color client

Sign in to follow this  


A while back I ran a design and repro bureau. A new client wanted a newsletter she had “designed” printed. She submitted the file, I ran the job, and offered to drop the finished printwork off at her house.

Client: I’m not paying for this. It looks AWFUL.

Me: What’s the problem?

Client: The colours are wrong - don’t you ever calibrate your equipment?

Me: I calibrate every week, sometimes more.

Client: Well I’m not paying. It’s rubbish.

To make a long and painful story short, eventually she ended up in front of my Mac. She brought up the Photoshop image on the newsletter cover.

Client: It needs more red.

She then started to alter the monitor controls, increasing the red balance.

Absolutely true story.
