This thread is about helping someone turn their vision into a reality. I really don't want to further change the tone and content of this thread. However as we have been personally attacked in this thread I would like to take the opportunity to respond.
The poster did not have any responses to their post when we posted our response. Even now including the above two post directed at us **no one** has offered to provide a recommendation or solution. **If someone has a better recommendation for them by all means go ahead,** but **please don't bash us for trying to help and provide a solution to their problem.**
Please understand I am trying to help the poster, just as we have helped many designers who regularly post in the Australian Infront forum and hundreds of small businesses throughout Australia. While we saved our customers some money in the process, we are more than happy to take the time and walk our customers through the entire process of getting their work ready for commercial printing. We know this can be daunting for someone who has never worked with commercial printing before. ** **We take pride in helping Australian small businesses succeed in print.** **
If either of you or anyone else has further complaints or comments I would be happy to hear from you on our Sydney number 02 8488 3116.
@tangerine – no need to verbally bash @inkable as they've been a regular considerate forum poster here and have given really valuable information and I know has printed for a few forum posters here who have been happy with the outcome
just makes you come across like a bit of an asshat @tangerine
There are a lot of good printing places in Melbourne. If you're in the northern suburbs, or can get out there. Minuteman Press in Broadmeadows is always very helpful and will show you papers, and if you want specialty stock, they'll order it in.

::If you're not in Melbourne - don't respond to a question specifically asking for Melbourne.::
I'm not in Melbourne, but if I see a post asking for a resource and I can provide a suitable location-independent service I'd probably consider posting too.
::If you're not in Australia, stop passing off being Australian with a .com.au address.::
I'm not in Australia, but I am an Australian and have a registered Australian business. Should I not post on an Australian design community forum either?
@TANGERINE - I'd suggest you spend a little more time as a member of the community before suggesting who should or shouldn't be posting. And if you do have an issue with anyone's post them please do report it to us moderators, we do appreciate the heads up, especially where spam is concerned.
