Botched Batch

After 3 weeks of patiently awaiting, I received my precious mailers via UPS dude. I was so excited when he handed me my precious little box of postcards! As I fervently opened it, my excitement soon turned to glum bum as my eyes fell upon my work. one word came to mind: EW. The quality was REALLY nice as I had not only sprung for the 16pt dull matte super duper thick paper but also the rounded corners to go with my business cards. ( still awaiting those)

While the polka dot screamed beauty, the image I had worked with was a last minute throw in and being the impulsive, impatient person that I am, I sent my order in asap just to get it over with, instead of taking my time. Well if I would have A) worn my glasses B) looked carefully C) slowed down, I would have noticed the PURE FUZZINESS of my image as well as the NOT SO NICE text placement. what was I thinking???? In a moment of disparity, I sent in an order to Staples--48 postcards for $40. I know, pathetic. I will not have cute rounded corners, nor a nice dull matte finish. Although the image is high res and the back is still polka dot.

I have spent so much on these so called "MAILERS," which according to a lot of the art directors that have  spoken to our class, are pretty much redundant. I personally hate them and will never mail any out. It's a waste of money a waste of paper and a waste of my sanity. I'll stick to the business cards, which ultimately serve the same purpose.

What am I gonna do with 100 mailers??? Any suggestions?

ok the back IS pretty awesome.


  1. WHAT????

    THESE ARE SOOO GOSH DARN CUTE! UGHHH DON'T THROW THESE AWAY!!! Plus people love taking things home from the grad show... please put them out. I want one!

  2. But the picture is kinda blurry/fuzzy!!! And I ordered a whole new set from Staples which I'm just so disappointed about! I think I have a case of the grad show stressies. I'm trying to be too perfect.

  3. Write me a postcard... and send it to me in YK... I think i know a little birdy in Edmonton that wouls like one too...
