Summer Projects

Spring and summer has been such a busy time for me. I've been inundated with family affairs, travel plans, and purging the house (in the konmari way). While I'm grateful for the time spent with loved ones and the opportunity to finally cleanse the house of stagnant energy, I can't help but feel a little wistful for some time to jam on some projects that have been on my mind.

With the precious time that I could find, I've been able to redesign and post a few listings for my Color Street Nail Envelopes in my Etsy Shop and lay the artwork out for my upcoming, brand spanking new drawstring pouches.

As you can read, Vinyl and Heat Transfer Vinyl has become my current medium of choice, and since I have an industrial high-performance plotter/cutter at my disposal... Let's do this!! I like to call the plotter The Beast, as this amazing machine cuts at a speed of 58.5" per second (4ft 10.46in/s) and has a cutting force of 5.88N (600 gf). I really don't know what any of those specs mean, but when working with the machine, it's fast, smooth, and delightfully efficient.

Though I am receiving some training from a sign-making professional (ok, ok, it's my mom), I am also teaching myself how to use Adobe Illustrator (AI), which is a graphics software that creates vector artwork to cut on The Beast.

It's been exhilarating, time consuming, and frustrating at times, but none the less, I've been having a ball with this!

Have some decals in mind? Either contact me or send me the artwork (as AI, EPS, SVG, or in PDF) for a free estimate!
