Mission accomplished!!

Yay!! the 300 Christmas card order is finished. You might have read about it here.

Thanks for all the helpful comments I received. Someone suggested changing the printer settings so that not so much ink was laid down on the card, but I'd already tried that - it gave a far inferior print of the photo.

So I've spent the last four days feeding the printer individually and spreading the cards everywhere possible! And then each one had to fed through the printer again to print a logo on the inside.

I thought of using fixative, but didn't think the quantity involved would be good for my lungs and it's not the sort of weather when the window or door can be open. So in the end I layered a piece of paper between each one when the inside had been printed, just as a safeguard against any smudging.

They're all done ahead of deadline, so I'm pleased.


  1. Well done Hazel. I bet your printer is sighing with relief now that that job is over. hahaha


  2. Well done you. Quite a daunting task I would imagine so I'm sure you feel really chuffed now it's all done.

  3. Wow, well done Hazel, that's a huge order! You'll not know what to do with yourself now LOL!

  4. Congratulations! If that had been me, the printer would probably have given up the ghost in the middle - at least you don't have to worry now as it's all done!

  5. Well done! Now you can breathe a sigh of relief at having got them all finished
