Also - I have had another thought. Could we do some signage for the evening do? Something to signpost people round the back of the castle rather than in it. would need two i think. do you have access to a laminator? don't think i do at the moment work wise.

Almost forgot

Here's the Where to Stay to sign off too - (i've printed some of these already, but not enough to fix a mistake and reprint, if there is any)

Maps and stupidity...

Hello!! So sorry - i forgot to post this up - what do you think?? I'm having real bother printing them as i went out to buy a new ink cartridge after work only to buy the wrong one (GRRR. bought black instead of colour - am cross with myself). So i'm afraid they'll not be ready to send tomorrow - but i supose this is good as you need to proof the map before i print off 130 of them! RE Chris sending directions - are you wanting another insert?

Evening do-ers...

We're inviting 32 to the evening do - will have a chat with you tomorrow about that. Doesn't matter if they go out after the day-do ones.

Looking amazing!

Particularly liking the action shot! Hope it is all going swimmingly your end doing the printing.

How did you get on with the map bit? I'll ask Chris to send through the directions tomorrow morning.

Hi Chaps! I need to know a few things before I start printing properly tomorrow. They're tiny but they do make a difference to the end result.

1) The impact of the letter press - do you want it very noticable ie so that you can see the imprint on the reverse (to the point it shows - see image 2 - this is effect is done using a blanket rather than a metal plate) We can get a really clean punch on the front without doing it but I wanted to check if you wanted it so embossed that you felt it on the back. Lee thinks it looks more 'professional' when you can't see it but Craig and Jonathon think it looks more 'special/hand pressed' if you can see it. I think it's makes it more tactile and I like it but then again i like both. They both are as 'letter pressed' on the front.

2) Colour - we printed it with a nice warm black onto white paper and an off white (creamy colour - my preference) I know we said brown but this may complicate the print colour for the additional pages (which i'm printing from my ink jet) I'm afraid we'll not quite match the browns up, which i think will look funny. It'll be much easier to print in the soft black - which when printed on the cream gives a sepia style effect - not sure if you can see this in the photo. So questions here are... brown or black ink? Cleam or white paper? (the cream paper's a bit stiffer to which works well with the letter press, and it's really nice)

3) Also wanted to check that edition was 130 (hehe we could edition each one if you wanted!)

I think that's all - but if you could let me know asap that'd be grand.

Hi Folks! Hope this finds you both well. I'm just tying things up as I'm finally booked in to print with Lee next Saturday and Sunday (after my wee mess up with ordering a positive instead of a negative, which has delayed printing by a week). So, for the additional pieces to go in with the invitation here's what I have done - did we say we needed anything else (can't remember whether the map was a go-er or not- if so, i'll crack on with it as i'd like to have everything finished before next Tuesday). Can you let me know which of the Where To Stays you'd prefer? And if there's anything else I said I'd do. Much love xx
