    Yes! My method it’s about $0.03 per page :P A CISS is a bit more of a cost to set up, but it’s so cheap to run.

    CISS I use: http://www.rihac.com.au/
    Printer I use: http://epson.com.au/products/multifunctional/stylusphotoTX810FW.asp

    But still – it’s great for small runs, not for quantity.

    This place is an absolute goldmine of information! Who knew these things existed??? (Ok, Chris, you did lol.)

    Haha I didn’t know these existed until I walked into a printer shop looking at a $1000 colour laser to do a short runs of promo material.

    I walked out with a $500 solution that was double the quality and cheaper to run.

    Just worth noting,

    I had a larger run of flyers (1000) done through a printer on matt gloss finish DL flyers.

    I have Illustrator but have no iea how to use it. I just used Photoshop to design the image and then turned it into a PDF with the right dimensions.

    The print guys had no dramas with that. So as far as I can tell, you can use whatever software you like , provided you convert it to PDF before sending it into the printer (if you get it professinally printed).

    @Damien – That is somewhat correct and it depends on whats in the file.

    Basically before anything is printed it will go through whats called a “rip”, which converts the file into instructions the printer / press can understand.

    If the artwork is not set up correctly it can conflict with the rip and give undesirable results.

    I’m not saying this happens all the time, it depends a lot on your artwork – how complex it is, whether it uses transparency / drop shadows / gradients etc.

    Most commercial printers will run it through whats called a “prepress” to check to see if there are any problems. But, there are an awfully large number of things that can go wrong, so to be on the safe side it’s best to notify the printer of what software was used to create the artwork so they can keep their eye out. (As each program has it’s pitfalls)
