前年,第一次嘗試著將自己拍出來的照片製作成明信片。因為自認成果還不錯,所以還有開放販售。雖然購買的幾乎都是身邊的親朋好友而已,每售出一份既是對天仙的肯定。那年的明信片(看舊文:親愛的我把倫敦熊變成明信片了)分兩種主題:英國和台灣。台灣景色的我把它寄送給國外的友人,讓它們認識台灣。倫敦熊遊英國主要是給喜歡倫敦熊的朋友們收藏。還有幾張隱藏版的,是專門製作出來寄送給當年在英國曾經收留過天仙的好心人。去年因為沒有特別拍到一些好看的照片,也因為一些私人因素就整個錯過了製作明信片的時機。今年由於恰好在Facebook上看到廠商的offer所以決定換家廠商做看看。加上去花蓮與墾丁時友人熱心贊助的單眼相機覺得應該還有幾張是可以製作成明信片的吧!才會有這一批貨的出現。

The first time I made customized postcards was in 2010. I was quite happy with the result, so also allowed friends to purchase their own sets to keep. Although only some friends bought the postcards, each and every set sold was a big encouragement to me. That year, the main theme included scenes in the UK and around Taiwan. The ones of Taiwan were made to send to friend abroad. The ones with London Paddy in the UK were made for people who think he's cute. I also made a unique set for the lovely couple that took me in while I was there in the UK. Last year, I missed the timing for making these cards. I think I may have intentionally missed it, as I didn't have any nice photos with which I could make them. This year, I saw an offer on Facebook, so I took it, and decided to try it out with another company. In addition, this year, I had the opportunity of playing around with the 50D of a friend of mine's. I thought the result would turn out even better!

由於這間廠商的價格與之前印製的價格稍微有點落差,因此這次就沒有很大方地印一堆。該寄出的印一印,然後再多印一份自己留著作紀念。但為什麼底下還有那麼大的包裝?難道是超大版明信片?

其實不是啦!是在製作的過程當中看到桌曆這個項目。好奇心殺死一隻貓的就跑去試做了一份。編輯完成後發現:天啊!太可愛了吧!我不想刪耶!所以就把它順便也印出來了!(好個順便!桌曆比較貴捏!)

The publisher I'm working with this time charges a bit more than the last one, so I didn't have too much spare budget to print out more copies than I need. I only printed enough to send out, and added an extra set for myself to keep. But what's with the massive box? Don't tell me they're giant postcards! 

Of course not! They are calendars! I tried the function on their online editing interface, and really liked what I saw! So I decided to also make some calendars this time! 

02

收到以後整個開心! 因為天仙一次定做了三份(一份給老媽,另一份要給老姊),所以其實當初很怕品質會不理想。但單做一本事後再補又很不划算。只好賭下去!還好!桌曆的品質還不錯!底座很扎實。而且放在辦公桌上,看了就開心!

When I got the calendar, I was really glad I decided to make it! I made three altogether; one for me, and one each for my sis and me ma. Initially I was quite scared that the quality might not be as good as it seemed. But it was not a very good deal to just make one, then make two others after. I'm glad I took my chances. It turned out great! Looks perfect on my office desk!

03

接下來是明信片。這次沒有整套都用倫敦熊。當然不是因為品質的問題。而是因為張數有限,有些明信片希望寄給長輩的,好像不太適合用這麼可愛的。所以就採用了一些只有風景的照片。上次製作的明信片沒有留白框,而且又是光面的,所以正面看起來就像是一張洗出來的照片。這次天仙決定邊邊留白。加上這次點點印的材質感覺就比較有專業明信片的feel。更不用說這次採用的是更高解析度的50D作品(好不要臉,還作品哩!)所以是更加的精緻了!

And now, postcards. I didn't make them all London Paddy postcards. This was not because the photos sucked. But rather because there were some seniors on my mailing list, and I thought they would enjoy scenery cards a lot more. Last time, the postcards looked like photos, because I chose not to leave any white margins. This time, I decided to make a white boarder around it. With its different paper material, and better quality photos, I think these definitely look better than my previous ones! 

04

每次寫明信片都會寫到很「搞威」,所以最後決定以卡片方式寄送。所以後面全部都留白!讓我可以把想說的盡情地說!

I tend to write too much on these, that explains the plain design on the back.

05

桌曆寄送來的時候是長這樣的!一打開就是倫敦熊在對我微笑。你說我怎麼能不滿意?

This is what it looked like when I opened the calendar. How can you not smile back when London Paddy is smiling right at you like that?

06

我覺得點點印真的連包裝的部分都做得很用心。

I think Tintint did a great job, even with the packaging.

07

其實每個月的部分,還可以客製化到把自己覺得重要的日子都寫上去。原本要送給家人的有想過要把家人生日都寫上去,感覺會更客製!但是後來發現這樣排版就變得很奇怪。我承認我也不想再多花時間去研究要怎麼改會比較恰當,所以就接受了這個極簡的設計。

In terms of the pages, you can actually customize it so it has all of your own special days on it. Originally, I thought it would be better to get all my family members' birthdays on it. But it looked a bit funny when I tried putting one on. Then I decided 'less is more'!

08

最後一頁還有地方可以做小筆記。不過天仙可是捨不得寫啊!

There's an empty lined page on the back, but I don't think I want to write anything on it!

09

如果想看看整份月曆的圖片,就翻到封面底頁吧!

You can see all 12 photos used in the calendar at once on the front cover page.

怎麼樣呢?是不是也想做一套專屬自己的明信片了呢?

Don't you feel like making your set of postcards, now?

天仙念:【親朋好友限定】如果有朋友們想要這份明信片,可以私下跟我聯絡(Facebook, Line, 簡訊, 或電話都可)。點點印是有開放可以讓作者以外的人下單,不過我希望知道是哪些人想要。而且我有折價券。人數多的話由我統一訂購然後再約時間面交,會比較划算。
