TTM: They're off!

Well, I am very excited today. For years I have been designing cards with the thought of sending them through the mail (TTM) in hopes of getting them signed.

The first two are in the mail.

For the record, I am sending to Curly Neal and actor Marc Singer. I was hoping to send to Mr. T, but I can't find an address that I feel confident would garner a response.

I plan on making more and sending them off. I will keep you guys up to date with my progress as well as my successes and failures (which will hopefully be minimal).

Cross your fingers.


  1. Just out of curiosity, what did you use to create these cards?

  2. Hi Paul,

    I use Photoshop entirely. I created the template, cut out the photos, create the backgrounds, type the text - everything...done in Photoshop.

    I then print out the cards on my home printer using "Luster" photopaper (I use Epson brand because I have found the cards print nicely on them) and then I use a double sided tape to stick the front and back sides together.

    I then put it into my die-cutter to punch out the final card.
