Clock Face Templates? Bought an old clock. The paper face is stained and ruined. Are there any websites offering templates of clock faces that I can re-size and print? Looking for something about 3 inches square with cool art deco numerals.

Does anyone know the origin of this ubiquitous angel
print? It has followed me around all my life in the midwest... I’ve seen all sizes of prints, several different versions including fountains and nightlights.
Where did it come from?

My wife wants to start a business making art for kids. She plans to make an original painting and then customize a canvas print with a kid's name. Any suggestions on an inexpensive way to get canvas prints? Any way to order such a service wholesale?

For many years I beat my self up because my photographs did not approach the quality that I saw in magazines. This stopped when I was assigned to repair and maintain an offset printing press. I saw the offset being a four color (five if you factor the brilliance of the paper) mechanical process while my photographs were being done in a single or three color chemical process. The printer told me that images that were to be offset rather that darkroom printed had to be slightly overexposed. When a chemically processed photograph was placed beside its' offset printed twin, they showed two very different images of an identical subject. Is a magazine photograph a true photograph or is it really something else? Can a magazine illustration accurately portray what a photograph from a negative looks like? Does this question exist with digital photography? Please discount duotone and tritone B&W printing. I have been trying to wrap my head around this for years and the question still troubles me.

What is the expected printing speed for wirelessly connected printers? I hooked up a Trendnet usb to wireless printer server with my older Canon S600 USB printer. I use wep encryption on my network. I immediately noticed that the print job for one page color document take a quite a bit of time to start on the printer. I have not played around much yet, but when i tried printing a short word document from my laptop I was getting not enough memory errors. I am pretty sure it is not a laptop problem.
When the printer was connected to the desktop PC i did not notice these problems of course. [more inside]

Now that I have a laptop, I'd like to be able to study away from home. The only problem is I print a lot of my documents to read hard copies. Is there a program out there (free, cheap or otherwise) that would allow me to press "print" on the road, save my print list and then when I plug into my printer, print it all out at once? If I try with the normal printing spooler, I keep getting error messages. [more inside]

I've got a project coming up that will involve placing pages from a large PDF into an black ink-only InDesign CS2 doc. The PDF will be created by MS Word. In the past when I've done this, the PDF has separated out onto multiple plates, so I've had to break the document into single page PDFs, which I've then rasterized in Photoshop and saved as greyscale TIFFs.
I can't believe there isn't a simpler way to do this. Ideally, I'd like a way convert the PDF to K-only, then break it into individual pages. I'm on a Mac running Tiger.

Does anyone remember/can anyone find the Metafilter thread that linked to a website that could take an image, split it into a grid, and allow the user to print that image wall-size? In 8X11 increments? It's driving me insane and I'm in desperate need of an immense Bela Lugosi for my Halloween party.
