Today I'm playing along with Kim Klassen's Free-and-Easy Texture Tuesday. I'm so happy for Kim. She and John will be heading home Friday after months of medical treatment for his cancer.
Before Christmas I ordered a new set of photographic greeting cards from White House Custom Color. Here is one of my new designs. I used actions from Sarah Gardner and textures from Kim.
I began ordering press-printed note cards from White House Custom Color (WHCC) after my printer died when I couldn't decide which printer to buy. At that time I was taking a photoshop class from Damien Symonds, which required me to calibrate for a monitor instead of a printer. So I ordered a calibrator and that settled the printer problem. (I now wish I'd purchased the dual calibrator model which would allow for both monitor and printer calibration.)
Ordering cards is really not that much more expensive, considering the cost of printer cartridges and paper. However, the minimum order is 25. It would be nice to print a card when I needed one. There are other labs that print smaller amounts, but they use CYMK rather than RGB, which I've been told would make the images muddy.
Check out the lovely work at Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.
Till next time...
