Letter Pixels / Color printers that will print on watercolor paper
« on: December 13, 2017, 11:52:23 AM »
Anyone have recommendations for a good printer that will print on 140lb watercolor paper?  I was SHOCKED yesterday to learn that HP does not make a printer that will do this!!  Would appreciate anyone who has pros and/or cons of printers they use for this.

Many thanks,

Dearest Erica:

Have SO missed out on FF exchanges this year!!  Looking forward to 2018 and getting signed up for several of them - especially since I am Valentine's Day baby!!

Kindest regards,

Here is what I have been doing for about 10 years - since I started doing envie exchanges with Cyberscribes:

At the end of the year, I purchase a 36 x 24 black frame.  Then I gather all the envies I have received and make a collage of them.  For a year, it hangs in my office at work - where people are JUST astounded that such an art still exists AND thrives.  At the end of year, that one comes home to be hung - and a new one arrives at my office.  There is not one room in my home that doesn't contain a year of envies...and I adore seeing them - as some of those calligraphers are no longer with us on this earth - and my heart smiles...and grieves at the same time.  I love it they they aren't tucked away in a box or drawer - and can be enjoyed for years and years.

Just a thought...


Dear Janice:

Ok...THAT'S why I have missed out....can't thank you enough!!  I, too, shall print them out and place deadlines on my calendar so I don't miss out on any more!!

SO appreciate your guidance and direction.....

Kindest regards,

Ding Dang It....I have missed out on all exchanges this did this happen????  :)

And how come there isn't 12 hours a day to work/commute; 12 hours a day to sleep; and 12 hours a day to BE AN ARTIST????

Blessings to you....

Dear Emily:
Thank you **so** much for posting this!!  Such an easy thing for us lettering artists to do - and will bless and excite William so incredibly.  Can't hardly wait to address his envelope this week.

Again, thank you.

I received all of mine from List 4 - Anam - yours arrived yesterday.  **LOVE** them all - such talented and gifted and generous individuals.  Can't hardly wait until the Holiday Exchange!!  Working on exchange from Harvest's Spencerian class now.  My heartfelt thanks for all on List 4 - for sharing the gift of calligraphy and the gift of you.

Dear Amazing Schin:

Count me in!!  You should have my address from the Autumn Exchange...but if you need it again, please let me know.  How FUN!!  And yes, I'm a kitty lover (3 right now) and makeup addict - preferential to Laura Mercier!!  Soooooo excited it is Friday and I'll have all weekend to be in my studio.  Working 60+ hours a week, then adding in 10 hours of commute time leaves little for studio time during the week!!!

I'm soooooooo ready to get back into my room which brings me peace and joy and calmness and grace........

Kindest regards,

Any Photoshop Elements experts out there - willing to walk me through my first attempt at scanning calligraphy?  I bought the book "Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 for Dummies"...but I'm certain that anyone who is familiar with this could give me the Cliff Notes version....  8)

Many thanks!!

Help out a newbie here.....I am assuming that "something" needs to go into the exchange envelopes.  Since this is my first exchange - I would love some ideas of what y'all have previously sent!!  Many many thanks!!
