Today we made BIG progress in our project…
We finished ALL 16 face cards for our OBPxAJ ink card deck!
We also partially completed our pre-fundraiser press release that will be sent to OBP to share with their followers and supporters.
Now that we have completed all of the face cards, we wanted to get down to the details about how the cards will be printed. We looked up the dimensions of playing cards which is 2.5”x3.5”x.17mm. We researched different card stocks and ways that we could possibly print them with lamination.
Because the cards need to be 2.5”x3.5”x.17mm, we had to bring them into PhotoShop to uniform them one more time (they were all laid out originally on a 8.5”x11” canvas plus not all the cards had the exact same sizing for the binding box). To do this we used a new PhotoShop tool called “Actions”. Actions make it easier to go through repetitive processes. The action allowed us to save our work to the same space and in the same dimensions and format.
Stay tuned for next week where we will make progress on the number cards of the deck and finish our press release!
