We are very happy with how our 2012 New Year cards turned out. They have been mailed (mostly) and the response has been really positive. It nicely compliments last year’s universe theme and makes light of the Mayan impending doomsday predictions. Now the challenge is producing something even better next year!

New Year Card 2012 Process

We just finished printing our New Years cards last weekend and are looking forward to sending them out soon. The process went seemingly smooth until we realized, after making 40 prints of the 1st color, that we hadn’t properly secured our paper holder and therefore we couldn’t get the second color to align consistently and we had to start all over. It was a huge hassle and a good reminder for us to always spend that extra minute to make sure our setup is perfect. Oh well. All is well that ends well.

Here are some sneak peaks of the process. I don’t want to potentially reveal the design before people receive them, so I’m keeping these pics abstract. Keep an eye out for one in your mailbox!

The New Year Cards this year were a lot of fun to design and got a great response from the friends and family that received them. We are [finally] getting up a post with pics. Hopefully the year thus far is treating you as well as it is treating us!

And did we mention they glow in the dark! -JM

Our New Years card that we sent out to our friends and family this year focused on the transition from one year to another and specifically that space in between. Crazy to think that we are already a decade into the 21st century! -JM

A sneak peak of our process for the 2010 New Year Card…

Without giving too much away, I’ll say that it is two color. It has a pattern. And we spent a long time mixing the second color. We had our greatest success in aligning the two colors with this piece, though we faced some challenges with ink bleeding.

We are writing and mailing now…who knows? Maybe one is on its way to you.

We’ll post the final in 2010.
