Two cool things have happened today after my late start this morning. One - got some samples in from the factory which have come back DAMN NEAR PERFECT which is, almost IMPOSSIBLE when dealing with international factories. Our first run, they did the colours all wrong and I wasn't able to go back, reject what they supplied and re-sample, so they went out dull and boring (if you know anything about printing, they printed all my lovely spot PMS colours in CMYK). This time around, they've PMS'd it up and they look gorgeous. They've also debossed the logos and details in some of the print which I wanted, but thought they'd never do. Very happy about it.
Have also gotten onto a new contact, who I emailed about a book they had written. They've come back saying they have some work available and they need someone to jump in, and could I provide my rates? YES! The network is getting bigger and this could be one of the ones that leads to something bigger, better, brighter - more contacts, more work, more opportunity.
Must dash, this one is being written at work :)
What could be better? The traffic NOT being crap on the drive home from work today.
