    Default Overun number?

    i am short on time on a project and considering having someone print some editions for me. they say they need to run 100 to get 50 acceptable prints. is this reasonable?

    sorry if there are previous postings on this subject, i dont know the correct term to search for!

    50% loss is never acceptable.

    that must be a really crappy shop or your art must be really hard to print or if it's 10 or 20 colors.

    is there a split fade in your art?

    or they are retarded idiots.

    i recently told daniel danger that if he wanted 175 perfectly good 25-30 color prints we would need to print about 225-250 and in reality he'd end up with 200 or so good prints and 50 that are slightly out of reg or used for color testing.

    in 99.9% of all print jobs we've done we have never charged for an over run, our pricing was originally calculated on having a 10% over run done per job in case of rejects.

    you should be charged for the number of good prints you receive.

    100% over-run is absurd, unless (see andy's post above)
    most of the time we never fish!
