Happy kitty @midwestfurfest 

Really wish I could be at Midwest fur fest this year but retail means no days off in December. However, I am taking commissions.  

 
Order before November 7th and get free shipping with a tracking number so you can watch your badge come to you. Plus, get a high resolution scan of your badge so if you lose it or kill it you can reprint it. Comes laminated with a badge clip. 

$40 for a full color full body badge. 

$30 for a full color bust badge. 

Or if you just want an outline sketch as above $20 for a digital copy (does not qualify for print copy or shipping) 

@furreality commission spots still open 

Do you want and cute and cuddly commission for @furreality 2015. Well it’s just 4 weekends away and you don’t want to put it off to long. 

This is just a sketch but when he’s done he’d be a $40.00 pre-order in full color with lamination, badge clip, and e-mail scan. Yes, I scan and send you a copy so if/when traggity occurs and you lose or damage your badge it isn’t lost for good. You can print a copy. 

  
I do this pre lamination so it doesn’t have any odd shiny spots from glare or reflection off the plastic. 

Just message me through my contact page, e-mail me at laura@quackquackhonk.com,  or direct msg me Twitter @qqh_designs 

Rebranding 

new logo announced today for quack quack honk designs.

 I’ve been using a version of this for my signature for over a year now and it’s worked out well. So when I found my original logo on the back of some cards (okay, so not exactly the same thing. Mine is cartooned and theirs was a pic) I decided, instead of whining about a logo I wasn’t thrilled with any longer, I’d change it.

It currently black and white so when I scan it I can change it to whatever color I want. It’s simple so it can be read at a distance. And it’s not being used by someone else. I hope u enjoy.

Convention materials: Scanner

Now, I wont say this is an essential… obviously not since I don’t see most people carrying it. However, I really enjoy my portable scanner. It is somewhat like the model below (a slightly newer version of my VuPoint Magic Wand).

Now, for my scanning at home I would never pull this out. It is too low a resolution, doesn’t interface well with a computer, and has some issues recording all the way to the edge.

However, it does something my home scanner just can’t do… travel. I pop in two AA batteries, a microSD card, and I am ready to go. These models do 600dpi, and have reasonable image quality. It has wifi and an app to transfer the files, but skip it unless you absolutely have to. It is just too much of  pain. Instead just pop out the card and throw it in a phone or tablet with microSD support.

To top it off, it is $45-$100 (depending on accessories). If it gets dropped, stolen, or just dies on me, I can replace it.

Now, why would I want one? I like being able to provide a good digital copy to my customers. After all, badges get lost, or damaged. With luck the badge I made for them is special enough they would miss it in that case, and at least they would have the digital one. It also allows me to keep a copy of my work (so I can post for all of you regularly). And best of all I could actually reprint it. The techniques I use to make prints can turn out something really close, if someone actually needed it.
