When it comes to scanned traditional artworks, the most time consuming thing to do is probably refining the scanned image (removing the dust/debris that got caught during scanning process, bumping up the hues/contrast, etc.). For me here, it is removing the white background from my watercolor succulents O0O''
Many times I manually use the eraser tool to erase the white, which of course takes forever. I've also tried selecting a large white area then hit the delete button, or use the magic eraser tool- but often times I always had to go back to refine the edges because some of them get deleted in the process.
We always run a few test prints of our stickers before the final printing. What to do with those extra stickers? Some have defects such as ink bleeds, incorrect colors, and blurriness, naturally we won't put them up in our shop for sale. So with a bunch of leftover stickers in our tool box, we decided to make use of them! :)
So... admittedly we've been neglecting our weebly website for awhile :'D For the past five months we've tested out so many different site hosting company to make our website, searching for 'the one' that have all the features we need in order to make our site super duper awesome! But in the end we still weren't able to find 'the one'... until we returned to weebly and found that it's features are the easiest when it comes to edit/adding photos, texts, etc. (we're not super computer & html techie).
Anyway, back to what this blog is about: aside from finding a website we've also been doing extended testing on our stickers. Before we only printed non-waterproof matte stickers, but waterproof decals seem to have more appeal with customers so we had some designs printed & tested:
These are just a couple of designs printed in either matte or glossy waterproof finish :) We'll be sticking them on phone/tablets/laptop surfaces, as well as helmets for further testing!
Washi tape order has finally arrived! Took several hours unpacking, sorting, and taking photographs of each design. Here are a few snapshots:
Everyday is full of surprises! This blog will feature behind the scenes (and work-in-progress) of our artwork and products :)
