A short post this one. I did promise myself that I would do some designing yesterday and I'd written the words for these designs months ago.
I am pleased with the simplicity of one of them and the intricacy of the other. I hand drew the border for the one below with a dip pen before colouring the design in on the 'puter.
In addition I have also finally realised how to make sure that for some designs I can print to the edge! I was trying desperately to configure my Canon printer to print without a white border. A few months ago I 'won' a great German guillotine in an ebay auction and I am simply carefully cutting individual cards down from 150 mm to 12.5mm. Genius eh. Takes me a Of course I have to be very careful with the lining up but a little thing like this is a bit of a breakthrough! I produce everything I make myself and knowing I can now do this makes me very happy. Of course as my business grows I will need to find a very good printer to replicate what I do but until then - sorted!
If you can recommend a good printer of short digital runs in Norfolk, Suffolk, Lincs or Cambridgeshire please let me know.
Both these cards will be available on Etsy shortly.
