2021.10.26 14:20 DBreakStuff Quality control and how to improve it?
Hi guys, hoping I can get perspective on how to improve the quality of the product we're sending out at my job, and the issue is a little sensitive so I need any advice possible on how I can go about addressing it.
So just a real quick background: I've designed and printed at my current shop for 5 1/2 years, helping out with production whenever needed. A few years ago the owner I worked for had a stroke and he and his wife decided to sell the business to a very nice younger couple. That was back in 2018. For the most part the original owners gave us free reign on how projects were handled and most of the stuff we turned out was looking pretty damn good. Not everything was perfect but we were still very careful to make everything look as good as possible without sacrificing too much time or resources to do-overs. Then, after we got bought, everything at first went about the same, but the owners insisted on learning how to do production so that they could help out when needed. So naturally at first a lot of things got messed up and redone, because they had never worked in the sign industry nor had either of them ever really worked much with their hands. That, like I said, was three years ago. And nothing has really changed.
When I say that they can't hardly do anything right I really mean it. We use straight edges here to cut things down and if they get their hands on something it is freaking rare that there's an actual straight cut. Nothing can be weeded without a ton of tears or folds or things picked up that shouldn't be. They can't use the transfer tape correctly for some reason, everything they lay down with have folds in it or letters will be out of place. We apply vinyl to our substrates and if they do that then stuff is rarely ever laid down centered or straight. Any vinyl trimmed from these signs will not be trimmed to the edge, I've actually seen signs with up to 1/4" of bleed still not trimmed. They've actually gone out and installed large vinyl pieces by themselves and it always ends up with stretches or folds. I could go on all day. The point is, anything the owners touch when they're trying to "help" ends up turning into a dumpster fire.
I'm the first to admit that I'm pretty particular, especially about my designs, but I'm willing to let a lot of things slide because I realize that a perfect product from start to finish, going through so many hands is pretty rare. But this is getting to a point for me where I'm having to reprint a lot, or we're just straight up sending out garbage product. We've had a ton of clients go elsewhere because of crappy jobs but they never seem to find the fault in themselves, it's just excuses like "Oh the client is being too picky". Largely, part of the problem is that they're capitalists through and through so even if they do a crappy job on something it's "fine" because god forbid we waste more money making sure the customer has a decent product. Our stuff isn't cheap and IDK, maybe I'm thinking about this the wrong way, but I think if you're charging a lot for your product it should be the best quality possible and it really is not.
But all that being said, I don't hate them and the time we've spent together at our very small business has led to some close relationships between us all and I feel a little bad just as a person addressing another person that they're not doing a great job and maybe they should just leave the production up to the professionals, especially when I'm not the owner. How do I say this nicely?

2021.10.26 14:20 NikkolasKing "Sorrow cannot be abolished. It is meaningless to try."
Let me begin by saying I’m nothing but a rando who loves Final Fantasy X. I’m not a philosophy major or even a minor, just a person who enjoys learning, either from video games or from reading. In fact, I try to merge everything I learn, to find the wisdom in each and thus strengthen them more than they ever could be apart.
Somebody one told me what defined true art was “when the orcs mean something.” Sure it’s cool to have dragons and stuff but a brilliant piece of art has to have some deeper meaning than that. Lord of the Rings isn’t really about an evil magic ring, it’s about the temptation of sin as symbolized in the One Ring. Final Fantasy X is considerably less subtle than LOTR but that is all to the good as most of us came to the game at a young age and there’s nothing inherently wrong in having simplified messages that are right on the nose.
What is FFX ultimately about? What is the profound message at its heart? I can only give my interpretation, citing the two sense which have resonated most with me for two decades: the Bevelle Trial and meeting Yunalesca.
While I’ve been playing FFX for two decades, I more recently came upon another game that tackled pretty much the same issues. What sets it apart is that it allows you to choose a (by way of analogy) “pro-Yevon route.” I won’t spoil the name of the game but if you know what game I‘m quoting from, good on you and please don’t spoil it for others.
Firstly, remember what Auron says:
Auron: Summoners challenge the bringer of death, Sin, and die doing so. Guardians give their lives to protect their summoner. The fayth are the souls of the dead. Even the maesters of Yevon are unsent. Spira is full of death. Only Sin is reborn, and then only to bring more death. It is a cycle of death, spiraling endlessly.
Now from the other game:
Main Villain: All mysteries forever unanswered. All purposes constructed from meaninglessness. No endings to being closure. Only a Wheel, turning without mercy, grinding our spirits to dust.
PC: You're right, that's no way to live.
Now look to FFX:
Yunalesca: Hope is…comforting. It allows us to accept fate, however tragic it might be.
The other game:
Woman: What if we can be assured of nothing?
PC: Then the fewer people who realize that, the better. People need to know that things happen for a reason. A fabricated reason is better than none at all.
FFX is not about a giant doomwhale; we don’t have flying, gravity magic wielding monsters in the real world so clearly that isn’t what FFX is substantively about any more than Godzilla was about a rampaging dinosaur. No, what I take FFX to be about is based on the Yunalesca quote I used as a thread title and also this quote from Grand Maester Mika:
Mika: Men die. Beasts die. Trees die. Even continents perish. Only the power of death truly commands in Spira. Resisting its power is futile.
Sorrow and death pervade every facet of life and that IS something we can understand, something true of both Spira and our Earth. And then the question becomes “how do we deal with this horrible fact?” I wanna quote from philosophers on this matter to help elucidate FFX’s theme.
Possibly the most famous philosopher to a lot of regular people is Friedrich Nietzsche. Primarily known for Ubermensch, a glorious moustache, and having his ideas taken up/distorted by the Nazis, Nietzsche was (at one point) an enthusiastic follower of a much less famous German philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer. Dubbed the “Philosopher of Pessimism,” he never tired in showing how the world is an awful place and the only sane or moral response to it is to give up on life altogether.
Now it is quote time. I recently just read all this myself since I’m also a pessimist and eager to read about this justification from people a lot smarter and more well-informed than myself.
First off, a brief summary of Schopenhauer vs. Nietzsche. This is from the book Willing and Nothingness: Schopenhauer as Nietzsche's Educator, specifically the chapter "Schopenhauer and Nietzsche: Honest Atheism, Dishonest Pessimism" by David Berman
I suggest that Schopenhauer's pessimism has three main strands, all of which stem from his atheistic metaphysics of will. Because the thing in itself is will, because, that is, there is only blind will to life,
(pI) there can be no real or objective purpose in the world;
(p2) there will always be more pain and suffering than pleasure and happiness; and
(P3) to live is to sin, to be immoral.
One way of putting this last point is to say that although Schopenhauer was a metaphysical pessimist, he was an epistemological optimist. That is, although the world is bad, knowledge about it is good, indeed profoundly liberating. Of course, in one sense, there is nothing very distinctive in such optimism. Schopenhauer probably shares this with nearly all philosophers, from Plato at least to the Age of Reason. Yet it was, as I will argue, important for Nietzsche, in that Schopenhauer's epistemological optimism caused Nietzsche to embrace, or at least consider, what can be called epistemological pessimism.
But when one once more becomes aware of this everyday reality, it becomes repellent; this leads to a mood of asceticism, of denial of the will. This is something that Dionysian man shares with Hamlet: both have truly seen to the essence of things, they have understood (erkannt), and action repels them; for their action can change nothing in the eternal essence of things, they consider it ludicrous or shameful that they should be expected to restore order to the chaotic world. Understanding (Erkenntniss) kills action, action depends on a veil of illusion—this is what Hamlet teaches us [….].What this all means is helpfully explained in Julian Young’s Nietzsche’s Philosophy of Art:
The "Dionysian" type, on the other hand, knows the Heraclitean truth of things. The (pre-Socratic) Greeks knew it: they were possessed of "Dionysian truth," "tragic vision." That they were susceptible to "overwhelming dismay in the face of the titanic powers of nature, the Moira [fate] enthroned inexorably over all knowledge" (BT 1) is recorded in their myths; in particular, in the tragic myths of the humanitarian Prometheus and the wise Oedipus (ibid.). (Notice the resemblance between "Dionysian wisdom" and Schopenhauer's "feeling of the [dynamically] sublime" [see ch. 1, sec. 8]. This provides a hint as to the kind of solution to the terror of life Nietzsche will ultimately propose.) It is this that threatens lifedenying nausea, Buddhistic negation of the will: "Dionysian man resembles Hamlet: both have once looked truly into the essence of things, they have gained knowledge, and nausea inhibits action; for their action could not change anything in the eternal nature of things;... knowledge kills action; action requires the veil of illusion" (BT 7).
But let us first do away with metaphor. What is the "long slow pain" to which Nietzsche refers? It is, in a word, the death of God, an event which, though formally announced for the first time only in section 125 of The Gay Science, was in fact acutely present to Nietzsche from the very outset of his philosophical career. The pain is the pain of confronting the "terror and horror," the "heartbreaking and cruel character" of existence - "what I desire most," he wrote to Heinrich von Stein in December 1882, "is a high point from which I can see the tragic problem lying beneath me. I would like to take away from human existence some of its heartbreaking and cruel character" - without the "metaphysical comfort" brought to us by theistic belief. The problem is suffering and our vulnerability to it: not all suffering (not the pain of dentistry, for example) but rather suffering for which we can discover no redeeming purpose or justification, suffering that disposes us to view life as "nauseating." Without God life appears to be "absurd" and (save for extinction) there appears to be no deliverance from it.
But while recording the role of illusion in human life with unprecedented thoroughness, Schopenhauer's stance towards it is always Platonic - contemptuous. The cause of this is his philosopher's morality, his care for truth - the fact that, as Nietzsche would put it, possessing an "unconditional will to truth" he is "still pious" (GS 344). This prevents him from entertaining the distinctively Nietzschean idea that illusion, "art, " is "'more divine' than truth," prevents him making the inference that since "we have need of lies in order to live," well then, let there then be lies (WP 853).
There is nothing Nietzsche would reject more, we can say, than Plato's allegory of the cave.34 We cannot climb up out of the cave and look directly at the truth. It would probably kill us. There is a reason why we are down in the cave with our backs to the truth. All that advice that circulates at the bottom of the cave, that we should stay there, that it is lunacy to try to get out, is damned good advice. It is true that the shadows at the bottom of the cave are illusions, distortions, lies. But it is not true that the shadows lock us into a prison. They keep out the horror.
In Will to Power, he says, "there is only one world, and this is false, cruel, contradictory, seductive, without meaning.. . We have need of lies in order to conquer this reality, this 'truth,' that is, in order to live? That lies are necessary in order to live is itself part of the terrifying and questionable character of existence."45
"...suffering itself was not his problem, instead, the fact that there was no answer to the question he screamed, ‘Suffering for what?’ Man, the bravest animal and most prone to suffer, does not deny suffering as such: he wills it, he even seeks it out, provided he is shown a meaning for it, a purpose of suffering. The meaninglessness of suffering, not the suffering, was the curse that has so far blanketed mankind…”Summoners and guardians go through hellish Pilgrimages “because they had hope” because they have ‘meaning” to suffer. And for the average denizen of Spira, “a fabricated reason is better than none at all” to keep them going in the face of all this pain.
...namely, how does the “ascetic ideal” taught by the priests seduce the “majority of mortals”—the “physiological casualties and…disgruntled” (GM III:1) as he calls them--back to life? “[S]uffering itself was not [the] problem,” Nietzsche notes; the problem was the meaning of suffering, “Suffering for what?” (GM III:28). In short, “the meaninglessness of suffering, not the suffering, was the curse which has so far blanketed mankind” (GM III:28). What makes the terrible existential truths about the human situation terrible is precisely that they are utterly meaningless. For the majority of mortals, the teaching of the “ascetic ideal” gives those terrible existential truths a meaning, but a meaning of a particularly perverse kind. It explains their suffering, falsely, as a consequence of their own moral inadequacies—their own failures to live up to ascetic ideals—and thus at least allows them to discharge the ressentiment that suffering produces, albeit against themselves.10 The key mechanism by which this purportedly occurs is worth quoting at some length:The relevance to Yevon’s teachings seem obvious enough. Narratively, Sin embodies the human dread of death and sorrow. But it’s called “Sin” not “Death” and we are told this is because:
[E]very sufferer instinctively seeks a cause for his suffering; still more precisely, a perpetrator, still more specifically a guilty perpetrator who is receptive to suffering—in short, some living thing on which, in response to some pretext or other, he can discharge his affects in deed or in effigy: for the discharge of affect is the sufferer’s greatest attempt at relief, namely at anesthetization—his involuntarily craved narcotic against torment of any kind.
