What a shame! .40 for a clipping path??? I used to do a lot of this type of work and I was charging $65 per hour. Guess this is what the graphics business is turning into, it's a sad thing to see this happen.
I remember the days before computers were mainstream and making a path was a real art form! We would get the image on film and have to cut a rubylith silhouette with an exacto to create this. Now we can just outsource the file to another country and pay them .40 to get the same result. Some may call it progress but it saddens me to see this happen.
 
I got their email too. They do work for $1.25 per hour. Yes you read that right. Outsourcing will turn this entire country into nothing more than consumers. No one will be working here
 
Hmm.... are there other companies like this out there?

Based on their website it seems like a real company.....but really....who outsources their clipping mask work?!?

Many clipping masks are like vector work. I do them about 4-5 times per month. Not for $1.25 per hour though. Might as well go on welfare

I'm glad I can fall back on being skilled with my hands. They can't outsource fixing your car or building your deck.... or digging your ditch.....

No, someone will be working but they will not be doing anything productive! Everyone that has a job will be a middle man!
On the contrary... the only thing left will be things that are productive. Like hoeing turnips.... if we don't outsource all our food production that is.....

Actually.... they can. We import Mexican and Jamaican workers to work on the farms around here. The locals won't do it any more. If they can bring in the harvest, they can build a deck or fix a car.
(I'm argueing with myself....) :doh:

If you had a 100 page catalogue with every product closecropped and 10-20 products per page they could be a real time/money saver.

Back in the days before anybody offered alpha channel color selective masking we had to closecut a christmas tree for a major retailers christmas catalogue cover. It took three people over the course of 5 shifts to get it done. Essentially a weeks work when billed by the hour. Just for a single closecut image.
