Early Birds Printed


Callooh-Callay, a magical day!  I printed the whole run in one go.  8-]

That's never happened before.  And on a hot day too (when the ink dries out faster).  It just flowed.  8- ]

Of course I was using just one color, due to time constraints.  I'll mess with multi-colors on another run sometime.




 As soon as they're completely dry, I'll sign the backs and ship them off to Bea Gold and the Baren Forum Exchange #56.



This is the first time I've done a bleed print.  In fact the paper was a tad narrower than the block.  But I found it really easy to line it up because the block printed a rectangle on the liner paper underneath.



I like it when things conspire to work together.  8-]

So I guess I sign and number them on the back.  I'll get to that tomorrow, probably.  Then they'll wing their way to the moderator with my abject apologies for being so late.

Thanx Sherrie. Never done that before. Guess desperation is a strong motivator. ;->
