I designed some shirts for a sporting club.

Client: Can we put sponsors logos on them?

Me: Sure, just email me their logos, I’ll clean them up and email them to the t-shirt company so they can put them on the back.

They then emailed me me 4kb thumbnails lifted off the sponsors websites.

Me: No these are no good, I should have specified I need reasonable quality images to work with, these are way too small to be cleaned up.

They email me the same images again.

Me: I already told you these are no good. I can’t fix them and if they just blow them up to size, they will look terrible.

This goes back and forth a few times, to the point where I get this email.

Client: I don’t know why you’re being so difficult. I don’t know what you’re talking about, just send the images off, they will be fine. We are running out of time.

Me: Fine, if you insist.

I gave up, sent the images as is. When they got the print:

Client: What’s wrong with our t-shirts? Why did the logos come out so bad? What did you do to them?

Me: I told you multiple times the images you sent were not good enough to use and too small to clean up.

Client: Oh well, live and learn I guess.

You can learn by listening too, bud.
