This just bugs! (updated)

Last winter I was asked to make a carnival flyer for work. So I did. Here it is.




Then today I was looking at Cool Mom Picks and came across something on the internet that is completely unique and original and not stolen from any other person or company, however, might possibly be printed by another company, but after the many comments I've received, no one's addressed that part of my post and has turned it into a gigantic slam fest on my behalf. But that's okay! Because I can take it. I could so do the thing I found on Cool Mom Picks, which only I would know (and the 60 or so friends of a certain person) based on the example above where I used the exact same font and similar banner courtesy of Illustrator, that it makes me crazy that I don't have my own side business where all I do is slap some one's name on a banner I didn't even create using a font I didn't make.*

Okay, okay, while I have aspirations of learning typography, I can't make fonts either. I download them free.

I mean, look at my cute shirts I just made - three different designs this week alone and I have so many others brewing in my head it makes me nuts there aren't more hours in the day. ...

Alright, I've had my wah-wah session.

Anyone want to front me some money so I can get some samples made FROM MY OWN CREATIONS so I can post them on a web site and wait for people to order them so then I can order them from another company BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE ROOM FOR A PRINTING PRESS OR SILK SCREEN MACHINE (or the money for either) in my condo?*

I might be slow in getting things done, but I'm not stupid. Game on.

*blog post adjusted by author of said blog because why give someone free publicity? Which is partly why I never actually named anyone or any web site beside Cool Mom Picks, which is a great web site, by the way. Ah, but I was found regardless. Nothing is sacred. Not even Twitter.

Woah. How about all you peeps calm yourselves down and re-read my post. Never once did I say she copied it or bought the design from somewhere else. Jeez.

And offended? What's to be offended about?

If I was so offended, perhaps I'd gather all my pals to post comments or send e-mails to someone's blog because I got myself all in a tither and assumed things that weren't true because I can't calm down and actually read carefully.

What I did state is this:

"Anyone want to front me some money so I can get some samples made so I can post them on a web site and wait for people to order them so then I can order them from another company? Cause I think that's what's going on with the creator of "this."

In other words: front me some money to buy samples of my own work from a printing company so that I can then post pictures of said product so people could see how it look for real-like, then they would turn around, place orders, I'd then turn around, place orders and then have them sent to said person ordering. It's called a BUSINESS. And from what I can tell, JustJenn does do exactly that - with some of her products.

Now, if this JustJenn person has a printing press in her gargage, then more kudos to her. I just really don't think so.

And hey, if she can make a banner that looks awfully similar to the one preloaded in Illustrator, then more kudos to her. I'm just pointing out the obvious as one who does use Illustrator daily.

Jealous? Not so much.

Thanks for the many hits, though. Love it! : )
