We just brought a full-color job to a printer that was done in Ventura. In
order for them to read it (they were on Macs), I had to output it as
encapsulated postscript. I also output it as prn files in case they had
problems with the eps files. I ended up printing each page separately and
zipping a few because of the size of the files.

We didn't have any problems except that one of our graphics that had been
scanned in at 300 dpi looked a bit jaggy. They output it at 2400 dpi. But
the rest of the job looked fantastic.

I found when searching for a printer in this area (Northern Los Angeles
county, southeast Kern County, and parts of San Bernardino County in
California) that most of the places I called had never heard of Ventura or
if they had, did not hold it in high regard (After trying to design this
full color job, I no longer held it in high regard myself.). They were all
Mac-based shops. I'm sure it would be easier to handle in an urban area.

We're looking into getting a PowerMac with Quark so we won't have this
problem anymore.
