If a printer cannot most conveniently handle my desired format then they are
not most convenient for me. Period. Sorry, but this is business, not a
happy, bend a little forward bend a little back relationship. My deadlines,
my requirements, my money. Put out or shove off.

wants to remain competitive should not be able to except an electronic file
set up and ready for press in the year 2004.

Systems current with the technology do not have these problems.

I challenge you to prove that.
