Making: Supplies.

Last week after the paper field trip and test printing I decided to go with a bulk order of 100 sheets (for now) of 23″x34″ 80lb cover weight in white solar from Epedx. It came in on Friday with some samples of Tag 150lb (still gotta play with that!) This weekend I cut down sheets, Large sheets cut down to 40 at 16″x20″ and another 40 at 9″x12″ with space for registration. I printed the first two layers of the Honey Bee print and the paper looks awesome! The colors are nice and smooth and wonderfully matte just the way I like them.

Here are a few pics of the other most recent print project I was working on. While waiting to figure out which paper I was going to buy I was working on this print on found vintage McCall’s magazines. It was particularly difficult to register the paper and print on it because it is so damn fragile. I printed all of them and immediately cut them down to size and promptly bagged them to keep all the edges from tearing apart.
