    It Just Jumps Off The Page

    | Des Moines, IA, USA |

    Me: *on the phone* “Hello, **** Printing.”

    Woman: “Yeah, I need to get something printed, and I just need to know if you can do it or not.”

    Me: “That’s entirely possible, what is it you want to print?”

    Woman: “Well, it’s something on a website.”

    Me: “Hmm. Web-res graphics tend not to print well. You’ll want something at least 300 dpi. And web graphics are in RGB color, and we would need CMYK.”

    Woman: “Oh. Well, if I show you the website, can you check?”

    Me: “Sure, no problem.”

    (She sends me to this website and directs me to a banner ad.)

    Me: “Uh, you mean this advertisement that’s flashing at the top of the screen?”

    Woman: “Yeah, can you print that? Like 1,000 of them so I can hand them out?”

    Me: “But it’s animated. Even if the quality was good enough to print, I could only print one still frame…it wouldn’t be moving.”

    Woman: “Darn it! That’s what my boyfriend told me too! I just wanted to be sure.”
