This is so cool. Last Friday I went to the print shop and transferred the file. They printed a proof and it looks good.
This is just the proof so the quality will be much better in the finished product, but still this is exciting stuff. So awesome to see an idea come to life physically in your hands.
I brought in some comic books from home and asked for our book to be printed with similar paper.
However, I didn't realize how thick our book was going to be.
HEY! But with how thick the book was I realized it was going to need a thicker cover. So rather than comic book cover, I am going with a cover that has paperback thickness. It will make it sturdier. It will still be saddle-stitched.
I really like how it came out. When you are doing things on a screen you are not sure how it will look physically. Those two page spreads look nice. I think it really worked out.
I would like to thank Excel Printing their accommodation. The people there are so friendly. Over the course of time with other print jobs I have done with them, we have become really cool. Also it's cool to support a local business, especially one that is walking distance from where I live.
They estimate that the printing of these books will be done by this Friday. Then we will start the shipping process.
I can't wait to get the book into your hands.
Thanks again for all your support.
