For Movember I added some purple to my hair since growing a mo is a bit more difficult for the female species. I wanted the color to be as close as possible to #663399 (or rebecca purple) since it is a web standards digital remembrance to a precious soul that passed on as a result of cancer. Rebecca was Eric Meyer’s (CSS reset and other wonderful web things) young daughter.
This was was the closest I could get to making a visual link to cancer.
Love the idea behind using the color black in your branding and the contrast and intrigue it creates with your name.
Thanks alchymista, I think tinypaste might do the job!
Is there an easy way to wrap lots of HTML code into a short shareable snippet of code?
Wave is looking good, I just need to see if it does customized statements.
Thanks EireStudio I’ve just had a look at curdbee – seems pretty good but they don’t do the statement thing (yet)
I’m looking for a new invoicing app as I can’t seem to find one that covers all the bases:I need an app that does the following:
- Personal branding and the choice to send an invoice with or without the branding
- Send one invoice to multiple email addresses (eg. one to client, one to accounts and one to the project manager)
- Send the invoice as PDF (or sim) not a link to the invoice online
- Send payment reminders to late payers
- Has Paypal integration
- Automatically record payments made via Paypal and send a thank you for paying to client
- Monthly statements with customization of details
- A huge plus is an ipad app version of the software
I currently use zoho as it fulfills most of the requirements but it generates an unusable statement (I have to manually add all the relevant statement details in acrobat).
Other apps don’t do the payment reminders or paypal integration. I’m considering Blinksale as it seems to be quite progressive.
What do you use?
IVIilkman saidThen any printer that will print spot colors will be able to do the job, you just need to get the right pantone match color, I know the Pantone color for copper is either 876U or 875U (the one is a darker copper). The pantone colors for spot jobs have either a ‘U’ or a ‘C’ after the color, the ‘U’ stands for uncoated and the ‘C’ stands for coated. But you’ll have a much happier client if you can get the sample to a printer and get them to match the copper as you can also make up custom metallics with Pantone if you print a metallic color with any of the regular colors.
Thanks For the suggestions however my Client already has Items that Have to be Matched. He has Business Cards Printed on 130lb White Paper that has been printed Ivory and Copper metallic. The Metallic is some what muted but its the look the client is after.
Most of the online printing services would need you to specify the colors, so you would need to find a printer that will match your sample, rather than you taking the risk and getting the color incorrect.
Metallic inks on uncoated stock don’t look metallic after printing since the uncoated stock absorbs a lot of the color. If you want the metallic look, you’re better off using a coated stock or a foil, you could use a coated stock so you get the metallic feel and then use a spot UV varnish on the areas where you want a matt or uncoated look. I don’t think it’s possible to get a metallic ink to look metallic on uncoated stock. Another alternative for a metallic ink is to use metallic paper like this http://www.morningprint.com/product/card.php?acode=20
