I would like to take this opportunity to debut my very first successful print with my new (old) buddy Chuck. That font is Caslon outline with in favorite variation--Small Caps. I LOVE small caps. That's when the lower case letters are just well, smaller caps. But perfectly proportioned to the biggies.

It only took an hour and half to layout. Dang! That is a big old pain in the butt. I now understand why we do things on computer. I mean really!

On Tuesday my rollers finally came in from NA Graphics in Colorado. I promptly set about printing. Jason came down and took these pics. He's so sweet not to have told me I had ink under my nose. And through hysterical laughter he couldn't tell me where to wipe my face.

These prints did not turn out so well. I had the letters all kinds of crazy up and down, so some didn't ink up at all. After consulting my guru Shona, I learned my lesson just in time to crank out some birthday gift notecards. I don't think Wendy reads this blog, so I guess I'm safe in posting the pics.

I'm drooling. And I want to know how the roller thingy works to ink them up.

The true proof of your being a printer is the green under your nose!

GOODY for you! I'm as green with envy as... the paint on Chuck. And the Emmy: even more goody for you. Congrats from a fellow graphic design person, though non-Emmy winning one.
