I've finally done something. But I don't have any ink so you'll have to squint to see it...
This was my very first attempt at typesetting, which is insanely fiddly. But as I do papercutting for hours on end at work (which I love) I found it quite theraputic. However I think if I'd really messed up more than once I'd have thrown it all across the room....
I've probably done a horrible job in the eyes of an experienced typsetter. But it worked, even if it is pretty basic. It was really satisfying after weeks of looking at my little machine in the corner of my eye whilst watching Man Vs Food, finally having all the equipment (bar ink) to make a start.
Looking forward to getting some inks and doing some proper printing!

Please excuse the terrible photo, camera charger is currently hiding in a bag of wires so this is taken with my rubbish phone camera...
These are some colour samples of the latest wedding invitation I've been working on. Chris and Caroline wanted the whole day to reflect 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' I think partly because Caroline is a drama teacher and partly because it just generally sparks up beautiful imagery when you think of a midsummer wedding, good theme guys, well done!
I hope I've done it justice here and C&C's reactions certainly gave me the feeling that I had, as they hardly wanted any changes (this design is pretty much the first draft I sent)
I'm just finalising all of the little bits to go with it, RSVP's and information sheets, envelopes etc, then I will start printing for the invitations to be ready to send out it April.
I will post up proper photos when they're all done and looking a bit more profesh.
p.s. Can you guess which colour they went for?
