I am slip sheet neutral. Here is my policy:

* If anyone includes them with their work, I will propagate them on to
the collated print sets.

* If someone were to include an extra set of sheets for the prints they
will be receiving and expected me to insert them, I would have to
disappoint them.

In other words, I am willing to comply with print creators' slip
sheeting decisions, but not with print receivers' desires.

I personally have never needed slip sheets with Moku Hanga prints and
won't be using them.

Looking for a way to reward my best customers, I just did two "quick and
dirty" calendars through self-publishing. They are very easy to
construct with their Lulu Studio service and there is no minimum for you to
purchase, unlike many other publishers.

You can view them here:

In this day of economic know, this is a great way to let your
collectors know that "you care"! And allows them to purchase cheapies for
their enjoyment.

I use these as promo pieces usually and keep them in my booth for impulse

Subject: What got into me?
Posted by: Pistoles Press

I have NO IDEA!!!! But I like it!! After two weeks of fussing around with the fig stuff I'm blowing through work on the persimmon! This is the original sketch all painted up! Now it really looks like stained glass. I might revisit this effect as it's rater fun. The "stained glass" lines (measurements lines) will not show up in the print and I wonder if that will detract but I'm not concerned at the moment.

Just wanted to share the image of my desktop. Note the funny little pan of dimples with color. This turned out to be a great color pallet that is very convenient too. It was used as packing for something about a year ago when my husband bought computer supplies. It wasn't recyclable and I hate to continue to accrue things I don't need but his came very in handy. After I finished the painting I was able to pull some proofs of the persimmon block to make color blocks.
