As I may have mentioned, I’ll be selling my work at Monterey Court here in Tucson this Saturday night…actually, I’m pretty sure I only mentioned it that one time, because ever since it’s been finalized I’ve been in major preparation mode.
|A Pile O’Prints! Plus on the left you can see a package I just shipped – a cat portrait off to Florida.|
I ended up making 17 large prints (like the ones above), 20 smaller prints, and six sets of greeting cards. So Tuesday was Packaging-fest 2014!
|And price-tagged, even! It’s like a real store or something.|
Now, a note about prints…if you’re having prints done to sell, it may take some experimentation. I noticed after the first small batch of prints I ordered a couple months ago that my printer skews dark, so I lightened up my images before I sent them this big batch. One image ended up being too light, and a couple were too dark still. So when you’re having prints made, there will be a little trial and error, even (especially!) if it’s on your own printer at home. You might have to change the color balance too (many printers skew blue/cyan). It’s a process.
I had blank notecards made too…
