Business Cards and Foamex

Have spent a couple of happy days batting back and forth a design for a business card for Cropwellphotography.  Lindsey and Lee at Essential Print Services in Derby have been very helpful and have suggested a number of improvements.  I have just given the go-ahead for printing and am looking forward to seeing the final product:  it is difficult for me to scale the PDF proof to business card size.

And by the way, a business card (the missus says) means you are starting a business.  Not so – the website and related absurdities very much remain a vanity project.  I’m just aware that people will not find, especially with new domains like .photography, the website easily and the card will help.

Have also been investigating whether foamex board can be used as a relatively cheap way of providing prints that can be easily wall mounted and look better than simple paper prints.  There is space at work to display some of my photographs, but paper prints blue-tacked to the wall lack, well, a certain something.  Foamex may be better.

Messing around on computers

Spent most of the day messing around on computers setting up websites and twitter accounts (why can’t I get a decent size image from photoshop as a Twitter account header? Straight forward from another source. Hours of puzzled frustration lost). End of day, and realisation that the photographs I had intended to take has gone on setting up stuff to show off the photos I should have been taking. Ever decreasing circles. They ought to write a sit com about it.
