Back in March, I designed some new notebooks including the patterned Pocket Notebooks and rainbow holographic foil notebooks! I was very excited about the latter, and got plenty advice from the printers to make sure they’d turn out as I imagined.
Weeks of delays later, they finally arrived and it was pretty much all bad news! A few turned out perfectly as above, but the rest had marks and smudges on the covers and/or the foil on the Ghosts was misaligned with the printed faces underneath. After a lot of back and forth, this turned out to be an error the printers had introduced to my artwork so they were reprinted.
The reprints looked perfect, until I realised they’d been done with silver mirror foil and no rainbows. It was so frustrating, not least because these are big heavy notebooks and I don’t really have the storage space if they take a long time to sell. I did get the Ghosts remade again as the rainbow is such a big part of the design. Thankfully, it was third time lucky and I could move on with my life!
So, I have a few different varieties available now:
- Perfect rainbow foil & silver foil Little Ghost notebooks (£10/£8)
- Perfect rainbow foil & silver foil Bunny Bows notebooks (£10/£8)
- Misaligned Ghost notebook seconds (£5)
- Marked/smudged Ghost notebook seconds (£5)
- Marked/smudged Bunny notebook seconds (£5)
The print issues only affect the front cover so they still work as notebooks. The inside cover has a matching repeat pattern and they’re really thick notebooks with 160 pages and spiral binding. Prices include free UK shipping and the first few foil notebook orders will get a free matching holo sticker!
