Printage, Ahoy!

Yay! The printer arrived yesterday and I've been busy busy busy getting it all set for massive printage. In between working massive 8-9 hour work shifts and getting home at around 10pm every night, I've been tweaking and calibrating and all that not-so-fun printer stuff that just always unfortunately needs to be done.

But I'm diggin' it. And man, this thing is a BEAST! I knew it would be big, as a large-format printer, but whoa. Kinda took me by surprise. Mr. Printer is well over 2 feet long, and while doing computer and low-key printwork on the living room floor has served me fine in the past, I must say that a super large desk is lookin' mighty fine right about now. A trip to Target is in my near future, I do believe...

It's amazing though. The prints on the velvet paper are absolutely breathtaking (and try as I might, I just cannot see a dot pattern--how cool is that?).

On the flip side, during all my tweaking with colors and format adjustments, I made a few prints that, while being lovely on their own, just don't quite meet my extremely high standards for sale. Would anyone be interested in a drawing for a free test print? No charge (except $3 for shipping within the US to cover the envelope and postage--I'll send you a Paypal invoice for it). Their faults are quite minor (a little too red in spots, or a bit too orange on one, etc) and I really don't want to throw 'em out (what a waste of lovely velvet paper and ink). And the prints I'll be selling in ye old shop will be anywhere from $15-$35, so you can't go wrong with a free test print. Anywho, let me know if interested and by Friday I'll go ahead and draw a few names from a hat for free printage.

And, before I go do more print tests, here's a couple views at the new red shoes I got today! I'm so excited about these--been eyeing 'em for a month now. A bit pricey, but I rarely splurge over $50 for a pair of shoes, so I figured I was due.
Take it easy, folks!

Thanks guys! You're on the list. :)

love the shoes. :) I only took three pairs with me here, continuing my long stretch of shoe famine. I ask you, how does someone with over fifty pairs of shoes get into situations where only three pairs of shoes can be taken along?!
