Hi Lorraine,

Thanks for the suggestion, i've already got a few A4 sample sheets. The problem is that the sheets come in quite large sizes and i'd never use all of them so it'd be a waste of money.

Hi,

I have been sent an eps file by a customer but it won't open or import into Corel Draw 11.
The customers says it's the only eps file they have, can I email it to someone to see if they can open it in a different program (AI etc.) as it's quite an urgent job :-?
