We are actually looking for someone to automate our proofing process.
Attached is a pdf version of our proof (this is a vector file & can be edited in illustrator - password for the file is budget09)
We would supply print-ready artwork as well as a folder of different templates that are already created.
We would supply a complete brief of approximate print size, print location, garment style, colours etc.
The job brief is as follows:
Create the proof using the materials and instructions supplied from within our system
Sometimes the customer might order 100 t-shirts & 100 sweat shirts, both have exactly the same artwork but are on a different template file, so 2 different proofs will be created.
Save to a Dropbox shared folder
Export as a jpeg
Upload to our system (I would give you separate instructions for this)
Notify us that the proof for Client Name / Job number has been created
EXPERIENCE IN THE SCREEN PRINTING INDUSTRY IS FAVOURED.
We may get an approval or a rejection
based on information we will supply, the proof will need to be amended and same process as above.
Using a method we supply, we required the artwork be set up for film printing
The method is basically:
Separate the colours and change all fill to black
Add crop marks
Add each colour of the print (e.g. if the print is black & red, each colour needs to be a separate film) onto a separate artboard at finished print size
Save file to a shared Dropbox folder
So, based on these instructions, I need a quote for the following:
Proof creation (price for 1st proof)
Proof replication onto different template (when there are 100 t-shirts & 100 sweat shirts as above)
Price per amendment (when proof is rejected)
We do roughly 60-80 proofs per week as a guide.
An example proof & film file is attached.
The job will be on a weekly hourly basis and is on-going with room for growth.
I am fine if you quote an approximate time you believe each task to take and your hourly rate. I need to calculate the cost of the artwork stage of each job though, so will need approximate times for each task listed above.
I look forward to hearing from you
