So I'd posted on the FB group after I received the inserts for my invitations, because the map on the directions card is bizarrely offset:
(Ignore the weird background colors, it's still enclosed in plastic here)
The printer wrote back and offered to re-print for me and suggested I send them a JPG instead of a PDF, because it was probably a compression issue - so I did, but expressed concerns about the print quality, and was told it would be perfectly fine. They even custom-sized the new cards for me and everything (the others I ordered as 11x17 sheets to cut myself). When I got the invoice for the new order (free, of course) I figured she'd printed one, deemed it fine, and had gone ahead with the rest of the printing. The new cards came in yesterday.
The problem is, they look AWFUL. They're pixelated, the colors don't match, and the map image is fuzzy - EXACTLY the reasons I was concerned about the image quality with the JPG.
I'm going to write back and tell her I'm really disappointed, but...then what? I don't have the personal time to keep troubleshooting this, and invites need to go out in 2 weeks - I've already wasted 1 on getting assistance and having them reprinted, even with the rush job & shipping.
What would you do? Go for one last round of printing, or just suck it up and send out the ones with the funky map issue? I don't think it'll be a problem with people trying to figure things out, but it just doesn't look good and it's really annoying to me AND FI!
