Happy weekend y’all! Spring has finally sprung here in NC. The amount of pollen in the air is insane, but since it’s no longer cold, I can’t complain. Plus, I love yellow (not allergies, though). Anyways….
After attending Making Things Happen, I asked some of the girls that I met which printers they recommended for shop/ marketing materials like business cards, postcards, stickers and tags and told me about 48hourprint.com so I checked it out and found that their prices were great (especially compared to what I was looking at spending before) and who doesn’t love to save some money? So with the logo that I just had made, I went to work creating tags for LaMaLu Boutique! (I just love saying it (and by saying it, I mean typing it)).
I figured out exactly what I wanted to get and added it to my cart. What I really loved about 48HourPrint, was that I could see a proof once I finally uploaded the image – but to upload the image, I had to figure out how to crop the image to 2.25 x 2.25 with 300 dpi (phew). And did I mention that my sweet graphic designer friend is out of town this weekend? Since I don’t have Photoshop, it turned into quite the feat, I had to find an online photo editor, I ended up using pixlr.com and then because of the width of the image, I decided to divide the logo up and reformat it as such:
Let me tell you, it was quite the learning experience but I have to say, for free software, Pixlr.com, is great. So long story short: I did it! and the tags should be here next week – I can’t wait to show you.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I have some more boutique shopping to do. Let me know what you would like to see in the boutique.
