How to Get the Best Quality Business Card Prints

For years I’ve been dissatisfied with the quality of my business card prints. Considering it’s pretty standard for business cards to be crappy and the fact that most people don’t complain, I let it go figuring it just was what it was.

IE: What is it Good For? Absolutely Nothing.

What’s wrong with Internet Explorer? A better question, with a much shorter answer, would be: what’s right about it? Nothing.

Dreamweaver vs Hand-coding

Best way to code a website? When I first started out, I used Dreamweaver. I used it because I didn’t know how to write code. This was a problem because I was letting a program auto-spit out code that I didn’t know of what quality it was. I soon found out too that Dreamweaver is […]
