Blossom Notebooks

Here are my pear blossom notebooks! Resting in one of the wooden crates I ordered from amazon for my final project display :) everything is coming together so nicely, big sigh of relief that everything is here on time and looking goood. I had these printed through FotoInsight, they were so cheap at only £5.50 each and they're such good quality! Really sturdy A4 hardback covers, glossy finish and great detail and vibrant colours. You're given the selection of choosing blank, lined or graph paper inside, so I chose blank to make them more like sketchbooks or rough notebooks :)

Floral Iphone Cases

Here are my iPhone (4) cases!! I had them printed using a company called Photobox and they're brilliant quality, really clear and vibrant :) I was searching for ages to find a company that printed them relatively cheap and also with the design down the edges of the phone case too, because I think it looks more tasteful than having white or black sides. Finally I concluded Photobox was the best value! So I uploaded my designs onto the 3D mapping model they provide, to see how the case will look in 'real life', and had 3 printed :) They arrived really quick and came pre-packaged in a plastic casing, which I think gives them a more official 'shop-like' appearance :) (ignoring the upside down one)!

Pear Blossom

My silk prints arrived on saturday from BeFab Be Creative! I'm so pleased with how they turned out :) I chose a silk fabric called Double Georgette and had 3 scarves printed :) the colours are so vibrant and the print is really detailed! I can't wait to have them cut and seamed into individual scarves! BeFab are a brand new digital fabric printing company based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The business is ran by two sisters, Solii and Zoe, who have created an easily accessible and affordable way for artists/designers/crafters to have their designs digitally printed onto a wide variety of materials, from Jersey silk to Hopsack. They provide such a fabulous service and I received my prints within only 5 days of ordering! I definitely recommend them, here's a link to BeFab's website :)
