    go to staples and buy some toner carts and they'll give you a copy of HP marketing assistant free, or paypal me $10 and I'll mail you one of my multiple copies :)

    But I'm just an icky 30 year old.

    due to the recent comment made by my employer and his ability NOT to make up his mind he can make his own f****** flyers.

    Life as a receptionist is a bitch, isn't it?

    Why don't you take a well-deserved break from answering phones, applying postage stamps to letters and making coffee in the break room?

    It sounds like you need a definate vacation from those slave drivers you work for, sweetie.

    I love people.

    I've been forced to make some ridiculously complex stuff in the simplest of programs. I can make a killer flyer using a graphical DISPLAY program called Irfan view. (IrfanView - one of the most popular viewers worldwide I think). It's free, it's powerful - but it's not really the program you want. Quark is what you want. And Quark is complex, and expensive.

    im with recked, find a 30 day free trial of something, create, print, delete program. That or tell him you do not have the proper resources to adequetely do the task he has given you. Tell him that you are hesitant to use MS works or paint because it wont turn out as professionally as you'd like it to be. YOu dont want to risk the integrity of the company with some cheap cheesey MS flyers.

    or something similar.

    When it comes to working with Authority, people need to look no further than the teachings of Eric Cartman.

    "Look, Asshole. If you want me to do something, but give me no tools to it, what do you expect ? You bitch about my own whining, but doing this, and satisfactorily mind you, is right up there with shitting my self, finding no toilet paper, and using my hand to squeegee the shit off mah ass cheeks. My hands, mind you. "

    thanks. i told him about the programs cel suggested and even just the idea of purchasing some software b/c i'm going to have to do this a lot. he was like "let me think about it". so i sent him some of the suggested links and he's like, "we don't already have something that you can use." i gave him the straightface and told him i can't do them with what i have but he can easily pay someone for the designing and printing of them so i called and got a quote for him. 5 minutes later, "what software do you need?"



    :mellow: <_<
