Hi CC ~~ I'll try to explain. Funny, I didn't think how that sounded about my cards.

I orginally painted by greeting cards on 5x7 watercolor stock, and when I decided to not give away or sell my originals.. I had a friend at Kinko's that liked my cards, so she scanned them on the computer, shrank them to note size so two could be on a page on 90 weight card stock...(2 per page...better cost efficient) She had both sides so I could have my Wanda's Watercolor logo and name of card.

Also, when I did a large painting like my lion or wolf, or Apple Blossoms, she would shrink those down to produce a note card.

Is this making any sense??? Since my computer doesn't work with her program... I can't print them out myself on my printer.

So when I need cards, I call her, and she prints out what I need and mails them to me. ((Takes Time)).

Also, they gave me a small business break or I couldn't afford to do my cards, since I'm not interested in really making it a business at this time. Too many other important things in my life like kids and grandkids.

If I find a printer where I live now, I'm sure I won't get the price break, and so....that's where I am right now.

Didn't mean to write a book... but you asked?? (((smile)))
