There is a big difference between student work and professionally produced work as there should be. Design seems to be an acquired skill and each designer follows a certain niche path reflecting their tastes which appeal to the public that potentially become "the clients".
As a student I look at photographs of all this great work designed digitally, printed, then back to the digital world on design studios websites. In my opinion things that are designed for print should be honored with such respect. Good print. Good print that you can feel.
Where can I go to get great printing for small run student works? Im looking for things like foil stamping and embossing as well as offset. I want my work to show with the textures I envision, no lulu or blurb or whatever.
