What style do I want to project?? I have to admit I haven't considered the question enough. I want traditional, but I think I have to limit just how old fashioned. Then again, although I hate to leave behind what is good from my tradition, I shouldn't get stuck in a rut either. But how does one go to new styles and still feel safe about them??

I like my print quality very much, when using the right font and paper. I mean for booklets, it's better than just about everything I see. I've looked at some few booklets, that have the heavy resolutuion, and it seems like overkill...almost a distraction itself.

But you are right, the fonts, paper, etc. have to be carefully selected. Remember back when...we used to discuss fonts for 300 x 300 laser printers. I wish that information could be updated for the best fonts on newer lasers, considering their better resolution but also just how much better paper is now, apparently with new special coatings.
