*cue the celebratory music*
Yeah!! The bookmarks I ordered came today!!
*and I’m excited, if you can’t tell*
They’re around 6in x 2in, just right for the average book. I even splurged and went for the rounded corners. (massive expenditure that was, I gotta tell ya!) The printer had some sort of January deal for doing both sides with the coating, so I went for that, too. It feels awesome! The bookmarks don’t feel like any cheap card-stock print-off. They’re almost like plastic, instead of paper and they’re nice and slick.
And the print came out beautifully. I was a little worried that my graphics might not match up right, since the printer’s set-up page required me to have a certain amount of ‘extra’ that would hang off the bookmark. But it came out perfect. The text is centered properly and the unusual font I chose came out even better. It’s definitely not run-of-the-mill, but it’s not hard to read, either.
Okay, sure, there WERE couple of problems, but nothing that will keep me from going back to the same printer for more. The shipping caused a bit of trouble, since I wanted them shipped to a post office box and the printer couldn’t handle that. And the rounded edges aren’t perfect on all the bookmarks , but a little trimming fixes that, so I won’t complain.
Just to show you how excited I really am, here are a couple of shots with me and the sheaf of new bookmarks.
In a few days, I may have a page up where you can buy them, depending on how the research into the sales tax laws go. Keep a weather eye out for it!
It’s been a good Monday, people. Tonight, I get to fall asleep with a Hunter bookmark in my novel. That’s just gotta mean it was a great day, right?
