Of the 4 waxes I picked out for these envelopes only 2 really 'work' well.
Time to move onto labels that don't stink.
If you ever want to hold a notebook open I'd recommend one of these if they ever are available again...
Someone I know was considering analog / BuJo style 'stuff' and I got them to dial back the excitement and take a few baby steps.
🤞 to this sticking for them
/me fidgets wildly
Someone just ran off after excitedly talking about a notebook.
Excitement + inexperience with notebooks never ends well...
Woah, both of the 'art supply' orders I placed <12 hours ago are now shipped.
👍 to these companies.
I have 6[!] masto accounts.
Have you found them all?
I should point out that my responses to any letters may be delayed 7-12 days.
I ordered everything I need to take letter writing to 'the next level' and match my preferences in what I put forth.
Once the supplies are in hand, I'll ensure the pen is inked and ready to go 😁
The Red River Paper I bought today for letters is $0.24 per postcard. Adding in the cost of ink you're looking at about $0.25-$0.27 per.
Moo offers up very nice volume discounts on postcards. Trouble is you need to buy 1,000 post cards to meet the Red River cost.
I wonder if a group buy for post cards featuring images from http://kemonine.photography is something people would be interested in.
DM me if you might be interested in this.
I will be checking my mailbox semi-regularly but *not* every day.
There may be additional delays in response but I *will* see them 😉
That's surprisingly exciting.
New stamps came today.
As a great capstone to most/all of the InCoWriMo letters. A blog post on my next steps
If you ever, ever figure out the total costing to my InCoWriMo letters...
DO NOT PANIC, DO NOT FRET
I *chose* to do what I did and knew full well what the costing look[s|ed] like.
I WANTED to go the route I went. I CONSCIOUSLY CHOSE the route.
Mastofolk are in the upper echelon of good people and I WANTED to do right.
Time to figure out if I can setup a series of proper templates / pages to leverage with the paper I found...
This is sooooo in my future.
Solves a pretty big ❓ I had lingering in the back of my mind.
Dymo 30254 labels are CLEAR
This is HUGE
It's amazing what the creative spirit does to the brain.
I finally embraced a different line of thinking (writing/photog) and the lateral connections I'm making in terms of cost savings, creative output and more are astounding.
I don't think I would have ever seen myself tackling these sorts of things in the past.
Protip: I check my mailbox once a week or so. Given I just mailed ~30 letters I'll be checking it more frequently.
HOWEVER, once a week is the best I have ever averaged over the last 5 years.
You've been warned.
