Remain Clam

I knew the seafood here in San Diego was supposed to be pretty good, but apparently it’s also important to hang on to some during natural disasters.

Twigs card

I’ve been promising myself a set of properly prepared MOO cards since I got some free samples a year ago.

I finally got round to doing this; the cards arrived just in time for my trip to the Internet2 Fall Member Meeting, and literally an hour before the postal strike started.

For this batch, I went through a lot of old images looking for images that would work in the 70mm by 28mm format; most of the results are still crops from much larger images, though. One thing I found very helpful this time round is that you can download a Photoshop template for the card format, including guides to help you allow for a safe area and off-card bleed.

I’ve uploaded all the images I used for this batch as a flickr set for anyone who is interested; they are CC-licensed, so feel free to use them for your own cards if you like them.
