00:05 - 00:07It has come from a client here, clearly marked on the map
00:08 - 00:12We have been promised all files in CMYK
00:12 - 00:15We have been told with a 3mm bleed from this client here

00:27 - 00:28It is set in Word
00:31 - 00:33With no bleed & RBG
00:34 - 00:36We were told that this pdf would be print ready
00:53 - 00:58Everyone but the Sales Team are to leave
01:13 - 01:15I don't think I can take this anymore

02:08 - 02:13Can you make amends to the supplied pdf?
02:14 - 02:16Why can't they just send it correct in the first place?
02:17 - 02:21The artwork is 5 days late, yet they still want it tomorrow?
