The Card Sharp
by admin - 22:23 on 23 November 2011
If I fail to make the grade as a businessman it won't be through lack of preparation.
After several busy nights I have more cards in stock than Hallmark and almost as many prints as Athena. Now all I have to do is sell them.
Break even point receded a little further following today's financial outlay: my last Light Black cartridge went into the Epsom, so two more were ordered (at £10.03 each), and another pile of photo paper was purchased from Tesco (who, unlike Epsom, don't stamp their name on the back, thus rendering it useless for making cards).
Tesco Finest Premium Glossy is the paper of choice for serious cardmakers, so I was vexed to discover, when printing was well under way, that I'd bought Super Glossy, which may explain why the dark tones emerged a tad muddy. I'll leave it to the public to decide if the end product is acceptable.
If it isn't, at least I won't have to buy any Christmas cards this year.
