Michal,

I am in complete agreement with you. I think the signature should be on
the front and fairly discreet. I even talked to my students about
signatures expressing a part of who they are and that they do not have
to be readable/recognizable. Some people use initials or only the last
name, etc... They print their name on the back...so there is a place I
can be sure to read it clearly. Unfortunately I made the mistake of not
stressing the discreet part. I will be having another discussion with
them soon...they made them huge in some cases and I think it has taken
away from their artwork. We will talk about how it effects the
composition. Personally, I think you should make a stink. Did they
give you any solid reason/justification? :)
