Well, we’ve pretty much given up on the idea of thermography. If I had to do it all over again, I’d have invested in a heat gun, gone with non metallic paper, and embossed myself. But, as it stands, we have metallic stock, and just want to get it printed.
Due to a nice discount at the UPS Store, we are thinking of going there. So, of the two nearest UPS Stores, I have been corresponding with one via text and email, since it is about 1 1/2 hours away.
I chose this particular one because according to the local webpage, the employees there are professional, have been in the printing business, and I thought I would get better service….the other UPS Store, while closer and more convenient, does not have as specific a website, so for about a week, I have been working with the manager of this particular UPS Store.
So, a couple of days ago, I emailed my first draft pdfs to them. He called, and while I appreciated the help, he was more critical about the way certain things were worded….I just wanted to know if he thought it was laid out in a printable fashion. He then said he didn’t realize I was going to be using metallic cardstock or doing color ink (both of which I stated in the initial email). He said he didn’t think it would be possible, but he’d have to test it.
I called the other store, and they point blank refused to even try it. They said it would destroy the printer. I even explained to him that where I got the paper suggested to take it to a Staples or Office Max. He still refused. But, they quoted me cheaper to print and said cutting would be free….so I dunno whether to bring this up with the other gentleman. I am also a little put off that neither place would lower the price for using our own paper.
I just want to cry.
