If many UK designers were subscribers to this forum, I should make inquiries about the education your local education authority provides, if I were you! There might be a blip in your income (and I shouldn't even think about holidays in Southwold).

Geez...givin' all designers a bad wrap??!! Sorry you've had so many bad experiences that you stereotype all of us into this category. Personally, I am in regular communication with my printer about all of these types of issues. Most of the designers I know also work closely with printers and production depts. You must have some pretty lousy ones in your area...but we aren't all that way.
