love at first sight
My printer came! I killed myself lifting its 43 lbs. out of the box and onto the cart. My smaller HP Deskjet and my scanner were kicked out for this baby. Now they're in another corner on a wooden drink cart, ha! The printer is such a horse. It's huge. Especially when you see it in the living room.
Here's the first test print. And while I might have gotten still life photography down pat, I don't quite think I've gotten the whole picture-of-a-picture thing correct just yet! I'll work on that and get back to you. But, gosh, this printer is amazing. The quality is stunning, I am 100% happy with it, right out of the box. Oh, Printer, this is the beginning of a love affair.
This is a new print I just got in. Do you like it? It's Japanese. Just kidding. It's the test print the printer spews out when it's aligning its heads, but doesn't it look like a piece of graphic art? So I framed it. Maybe I will start a trend of framing print alignments.
Thats all for now, but in the coming days I will be perfecting my prints, deciding on a logo, and getting even closer to opening my shop. Today is a happy day!
