Front and back.
I wrote a long post in the first couple of days that I had the press, but that still needs work, so for now... here's what I've been up to!
Two card designs are printed. The first uses versions of the floral plate that I used on my wedding invites, in both blind deboss and teal. The second is one of my fiancee's designs, printed in a luminous lime green (looks more yellow here).
I'm blown away by the difference in quality to the Adana. And it's so much easier. And cleanup time is still 10-15 minutes. I get even impression every time, and each print looks just like the one before. No test prints necessary, just ink up and print away! Getting Collie was the best decision I made in '07.
I was so excited to print the yellow flower dude, that I didn't realise I printed the cards backwards - opening from left to right. My fiancee calls this the left-handed person's greeting card! So although I'm happy with the quality, I'm not happy to sell these as they are. I'll do a proper run for my etsy shop, which I plan to open in the coming weeks.
So, I have a few copies of the yellow flower dude card to give away! If you're interested in a free card, let me know in the comments. Because I'm not sure how to receive international payments for postage costs at this stage, I'll be shipping these free of charge. Free free free.
So the etsy shop is in the works, but in the meantime, if you see any designs on my blog that you'd like to purchase, shoot me a comment and I'll see what I can do.
