Right now, the printer is waiting on paper on will jump on the run once that arrives sometime in the coming week. I took advantage of the time it will take the paper to ship out to him to make some adjustments that will make the pulls easier on the printers end and brought back some details that would have been lost, due to my inexperience in setting up files for screen printing. Jay Shaw saw the first print and assured me that I needn't bother with the expense of burning new screens, that it looked awesome as is, but I am a stickler and I am chalking up the extra cost to learning this trade... and since it wouldn't delay the printing, I went for it.
The run will take 4-5 days to pull, since it is rather large, and then it will be shipped to me. Once I get them, anything I am doing will be put on hold while I sign, # and ship out tubes.
I am waiting on tubes from Yazoo Mills to arrive, kraft paper from Uline and I ordered a label printer and scale from Amazon. Once I get the prints, sometime around the end of the month, I'll focus on getting the ones I only have to sign and number out right away. The prints with sketches, or people who requested certain numbers will ship out last.
In the future, I will endeavor to have the whole run printed first and in tubes by the time I put it up for sale. Since this was a timed release that I couldn't very well predict, it was impossible to have paper ready, or know the amount of ink to prepare, or how to have the printer invoice me properly so they could start.
I hope you can all bear with me... my intention is to deliver the very best print possible and in as timely a manner as I can manage.
