change of address envelopes
« on: March 25, 2014, 04:30:48 PM »
so for practice i decided to send out hand lettered change of address cards, to some of my nearest and dearest, instead of a mass email.  the good thing is that this is GREAT envelope practice!  and even better is that i can experiment with line spacing, letter size, and different letter forms, because this is for me and not a client.  and also run into problems like really long addresses or ascenders and descenders that run into each other...argh!  and i'm using up a stack of envelopes that i don't care for...too textured for my taste.  here are the ones i did today during my son's nap time and my daughter was watching James and the Giant peach...its spring break week and only tuesday!!!
none of them is perfect or consistent...but any critique is welcome!
thanks for looking!
