So here's a post that's not about Simon...
What? I have something to type about that's not about my baby? Yeah, crazy, huh?
I'll just get right down to it: I'm starting a design business. It will mostly be card-type things such as birth announcements, invitations, Christmas cards, thank you cards, and pretty much anything else I can think of or someone would commission me to do (I wouldn't be opposed to doing posters or t-shirts). I've been in contact with a local printing company to get an idea about pricing and such and it's looking like this can actually be made into a reality!
Once I do a little more research and decide what kind of paper to use and such, I'm going to set up a simple web site and an Etsy store. In the meantime, I've started working on sample templates... ok, really I've just made one mediocre design, but hey, it's a start!
I'm planning on selling "print-your-own" files (if that be your fancy) as well as the actual cards (both single sided and folded).
So there you have it! I'll be sure to post a link once I get things up and running. Remember me when you're looking for wedding and baby shower invitations... and next fall when you're getting Christmas cards! Now have some babies so I can do your birth announcements!
