subject Re: DRAFTS & BLOG START...
you caught a typo. indeed, it should read "onto". thank you.
a draft's purpose is to allow for any editing needed, just as you did. there is no need for a grammar lesson. your rant is condescending.
i already pointed out in a previous email that there are standards to formatting a postcards text. the gallery logo MUST go on the top left. it is the return address placement stipulated by the post office. i'll spare the description of how to address a letter because it would be inappropriate and disrespectful. (our draft also leaves clear the space deemed for a postal barcode, stamp and an addressee.)
as mentioned above, files sent to you were labeled "drafts" not "final" copy and were intended to be utilized as "drafts". between sending the drafts to you and receiving your email, we'd already addressed changing the position of your hand to allow for proper printing and cleaned up the logo address. i'm attaching the draft as it exists now for you. (please note it is still a "draft" even at this point. it needs more editing in photoshop to clean up the image and stamp.) i will wait on spending more time just yet, since you are not thrilled with the stamped logo as a concept.
we love the stamp concept at the gallery but are open to your input. feel free to offer ideas an alternative CONCEPT that would incorporate the logo into the upper left and communicate something about the gallery.
